These very limited wooden collectors pieces are £55 and screen printed tip to tail in purple and non tarnishing gold.

In the lead up to Metallica’s 30th birthday party celebrating the legendary ‘Kill Em All’ album, Vans have put together a special, limited edition Half Cab as a tribute.
Featuring ‘black to the floor’ black suede and toughened canvas upper, this exclusive pair of Vans goodness should be a must have for all Metallica fans. The sole even hosts the ‘Kill Em All’ album artwork encased in a clear rubber vulcanised sole! It also has the lyrics to classic track ‘Motorbreath’ etched onto the sole too.
When can you get a pair of these on your feet? Well, Slam City will have them in from Monday 22nd October, so if Nothing Else Matters, get some over at www.slamcity.com
There’s no worse news than when someone you skate with breaks a bone, so last night’s news that Scott Madill broke an arm skating that crappy little bowl in Putney Park was annoying to say the least.
Aside from generally tearing it up whenever possible on a deck, Scott has been making some new tees under the Flicknife moniker and has a new “Shoot From The Hip” tee out this week in white ultra-weight cotton. These are limited edition and only £15 from flicknife.bigcartel.com
Have a butchers at what he’s been up to and get well soon Scott!

Death Skateboards are rolling out a limited edition collaboration deck and t-shirt with Sidewalk Magazine right now. There could be only one graphic from this joint venture, the epic Cates fishtank shot that graced the cover will be featured so ask in your local skater owned shop to order one this weekend.
“It is an honour to have made this collaboration deck with Sidewalk Magazine, we don’t take their hard work for granted. Long live Sidewalk!” – Nick Zorlac.
It doesn’t happen often in here but when Unabomber Skateboards asked us if we were interested in a collab, we decided that we should go back to the beginning when Crossfire was represented by the good old Bomber image and within a few emails, the ‘Pilot Tee‘ was born.
So, this collab celebrates 10 Years of us bringing you what we do in here from a brand that we have admired since day one. In fact, the winged handshake Unabomber logo is one of the most iconic British skateboard company logo’s ever made, so we are proud to merge our head and their hands for this one-off, limited edition run of tees.
Grab these whilst they are available from our online store. We will send them to you in the post as soon as you order with a Crossfire circle sticker and Refs Cards. Treat yourself to a comfy, new tee to celebrate with us and take into the summer month’s ahead. Thanks for your support.
