Jimmy has experienced a unique perspective as a skateboarder, consultant, marketing director and designer/owner of Jimmy Sweatpants and Standard Issue. He sits down and talks to us about what Yours For The Taking means to him.
Today Kevin hands the camera off to his partner in crime and usual Kreation’s filmer, Matt Price. Matt got inspired by the new DC Street Sweeper video and decided to go head to toe 1999 and put some DC re-issues to the test. CCS took requests and made him do flat ground tricks that were way out of his league. It was sweaty.

This is just a pair of shoes. Without you, they’re just an empty container for your feet. They can’t hit handrails & grind coping. They can’t buy you a drink or make you an artist. Tag billboards or give you a point of view. But they’ll roll with you. Stick with you. Have your back because the day is yours to define. The night is yours to conquer. The culture is yours to push. The big idea is yours to make happen. The dream is yours to earn. The bench is yours to skate. The wall is yours to paint. And the whole damn city is YOURS FOR THE TAKING.
