Last Resort x Spitfire Wheels

Starting the month off with a bang, Last Resort shoes and Spitfire Wheels teamed up for a limited run of clothing, shoes and hardware that's easily one of the best collabs of the year so far! Complete with Spitfire-themed Last Resort shoes and Last Resort-themed Spitfire Wheels, the Last Resort x Spitfire collab has everything you need to Burn Free from the corporate bullshit. We're all about supporting skater-owned brands and the Last Resort x Spitfire Wheels collab gives you the rare opportunity to support two for the price of one (and it's three if you include us too...); now that's what you call value for money!

New Balance Numeric Tom Knox 600

It's not every month we get treated to a brand-spanking-new pro model shoe and it's even rarer when it's for a British skater. Clearly, October was a chilly month in Hell as New Balance have come through with the new Tom Knox 600, the first ever pro shoe for certified UK legend, Tom Knox. The New Balance Numeric Tom Knox 600 features an updated take on a vintage court shoe silhouette backed up by the latest New Balance tech - including a FuelCell midsole, FantomFit reinforced toe box and a molded Ortholite insole - to give you modern day performance with a timeless aesthetic. But if that's not enough to convince you, the Gaffer says they're the best shoes he's ever skated. You heard it here first!

Limosine Skateboards Clothing

Your favourite skater's favourite skate brand, Limosine Skateboards, are back with another premium clothing collection and of course they backed it up with a bangin' new video because you know they do shit proper. The latest Limosine Skateboards clothing includes vibrant graphic tees in some very lovely colourways, bangin' embroidered Limosine hoodies and a solid selection of caps so you can rep the most iconic skate brand of the 2020s in style. We've also got some older Limosine Skateboards hoodies on sale if you're after a bargain...

New Balance Numeric 480 Skate Shoes

October was a big month for New Balance Numeric but it's been an especially big month for their best-selling New Balance Numeric 480 skate shoes which have been blessed with several new limited colourways, all of which absolutely slap. The New Balance Numeric 480 Yin Yang collection delivered two tasteful leather colourways with inverted black and white colourways inspired by Chinese philosophy to help you achieve spiritual enlightenment and we've also just had in the new NM480 PHX (which admittedly came out early November but we're gonna count it in this anyway) with its vibrant White / Orange colourway.

We're big fans of the New Balance Numeric 480, with its bangin' basketball-inspired aesthetic and top quality New Balance tech making it the ultimate alternative to the Nike SB Dunk - and the original New Balance 480 came out before the Nike Dunk anyway so these are actually the OGs. Plus, you don't have to enter some stupid raffle to buy them and we all know New Balance Numeric do much more to support the UK skate scene. It just makes sense; shop the full range of New Balance 480 skate shoes online now!.

HUF Clothing

Last but not least, we've also had our first full HUF clothing collection and it's safe to say they didn't disappoint. For their Winter '23 collection, HUF came through with a load of bangin' new clothing with a stylish, high-tech shell jacket to help combat the wet weather, iconic box logo hoods and a range of eye-catching graphic tees and beanies to spice up your wardrobe. We all know HUF make some of the most iconic clothing in the game, and while we don't have any weed socks there's plenty to be hyped about.
