CCS has been trying to get Nyjah on the 100 Kickflip challenge forever, because they knew it would not be a challenge at all. Sure enough he banged out 100 in less than 20 minutes total, and only missed about 2 or 3. That’s not even the crazy part. The craziest part is that his shoe, the Nike SB Nyjah Free barely even broke a sweat let alone ripped a lace. See how this superhuman shoe held up to superhuman skating and then pick up a pair today at CCS.com!
CCS follows Unity on their tour down the coast of California.
When Brixton came out with their line of denim, we figured they would be tough. Since Brixton creates products with skating, motorcycles, camping and music in mind, whatever they make has to be able to get the shit beat out of it. To proper beat the shit out of a pair we grabbed CCS warehouse employee, ripping skater, and van enthusiast, Noah Staller and tossed him in a pair of new denim and told him he couldn’t take them off for 30 days. Noah lives in the CCS parking lot, so he spends most of his time working, skating, or hanging outside. We knew he would give these pants hell. See how they held up and then grab a pair for yourself at CCS.com!
T Funk is just insane on a skateboards. In the last few years, he has grown in to one of the heaviest pro’s out. DC also noticed this and gave Tristan one of the highest honors a skateboarder can achieve in the form of his own pro model shoe. CCS headed to Baker Boys HQ and skated the shoe with Tristan, Evan Smith, John Gardner, Ace Pelka and a bunch more homies to see what it was all about. Check the video then pick up a pair of T-Funk’s at CCS.com!
For Go Skateboarding Day this year, CCS teamed up with their buds over at Creature to see how far they could push their local crew on their favorite local wall. CCS built a few ramps, got a few hundred of their closest friends in the PDX skateboard community and had themselves a little jam. CCS gave away $500 in cash for tons of rad tricks. In the end, Tony Ellis grinded the 10 foot wall AND did a 14 foot FS Wallride, taking home the most loot out of anyone, but the best part of the day was seeing how many people came out to skate with us. Go skateboarding every day!
One of Nike Sb’s most iconic shoes, The Janoski just got a major facelift. Naturally CCS wanted to see how the new and improved Janoski Remastered held up to their most iconic (maybe a little less iconic than the shoe) wear test! So CCS grabbed Nike SB pro and kind of amazing skateboarder, Blake Carpenter to handle a quick 100. Oh, they also cut some shoes in half with a Sawzall. Pick up a pair HERE.
Adidas Skateboarding is no stranger to innovation and the 3ST.004 is the newest shoe to come out of the 3ST lab. Beyond the eye catching silhouette, the 004 is the first Adidas skate shoe to incorporate their legendary Boost technology, which is a big deal for your heels. We teamed up with Adidas team rider, Donta Hill to put the newest 3ST to the 100 Kickflip test and they did pretty damn well. Just see for yourself and then grab a pair today at CCS.com!
Santa Cruz figured out a way to stop boards from chipping on the nose and tail, CCS knew they had to wear test that shit. CCS took a Santa Cruz board and a Powerply Santa Cruz board and hit the streets with Santa Cruz ams, Maurio McCoy and Henry Gartland to compare and contrast and see if Powerply made a difference. Spoiler alert… It did. Check the video then pick up one of these legendary Powerply’s today at CCS.com!
Brandon Westgate takes on the CCS 100 Ollie wear test with his new Pro Model shoe from New Balance Numeric.
Ever spent 2 hours on an elaborate grip job only to break your board on your first kickflip? Daniel has… Luckily he can’t stand to skate plain black grip so he will continue to churn out these amazing works of art! Learn a bit about his process and then grab some new sheets of grip at and dive in to a project of your own!
A pro Converse shoe could not have been given to a more deserving person so when CCS found out Louie Lopez was getting his own shoe, they had to make sure he did the wear testing. As it turns out 100 kickflips is really easy for someone as good as Louie and he blew our minds with how fast and well he did this. His shoe held up pretty damn good as well. Pick up a pair today at CCS.com!
When CCS texted Tony Hawk about doing 100 of a trick in his Lakai shoe, on VERT, he made sure to let them know that meant he had to hit almost 200 walls of his ramp in one session. Not skating vert, we didn’t really know what this meant. Apparently it’s like running a marathon just to hit 12 walls in one run, so it was a tall order. Thankfully, Tony is as pro as he was at 14 and banged them out for us with a smile! We couldn’t be more stoked to see the legend in one of CCS’s wear tests! See how his shoe held up and grab a pair at CCS.com today!
