For Skate Shop Day this year we've been treated to an incredible selection of exclusive Skate Shop Day product from a load of your favourite brands including New Balance, Real, Krooked and more. As it's all about bringing people into skate shops, all this product will only be available in-store from February 18th, so make sure you set your alarm and get down here bright and early if you don't want to miss out on the goodies. Quanities are extremely limited on most of these - particularly the Tony Hawk Grimplestix decks and Krooked Pure Evil Beamers - so speed is of the essence!

Skate Shop Day Decks

Obviously the thing everyone was excited for was the inscrutable DLX mystery decks, but the cat's officially out of the black bag and we can finally reveal the surprise! Inside the ominous black bags is stashed one of the most legendary collabs of all-time: an ultra-limited Tony Hawk Birdhouse x Grimple Stix 'Grimplehouse' deck featuring a Birdman-themed Grimple graphic! With two shapes on offer, the RARE 8.5" popsicle or the ULTRA-RARE 10.14" custom-shaped and hand-numbered version with only 250 in circulation, it's a complete surprise what shape you're gonna get in the bag so may fortune shine on you. These are extremely limited so make sure you get down nice and early if you want one!

Alongside the Tony Hawk Grimple Stix deck, we've also got a new variation of Mark Gonzales' signature Evil Beamer. This absolute whopper of a deck comes in at 10.75" of pure Gonz madness featuring his iconic custom shape with wheel wells and cut-outs exposing the tie-dye woodstain beneath. The new Skate Shop Day Pure Evil Beamer features a sparkly black graphic with a load of Gonz' iconic illustrations in a snazzy silver print alongside the vibrant multi-coloured woodstain.

Even rarer than the Grimplehouse decks, we've got some incredible new Skate Shop Day decks courtesy of Unity. Limited to just 150 decks, the Unity Skate Shop Day deck features unique, hand finished artwork by iconic skate artist, Jeffrey Cheung, alongside his signature doodly designs. But best of all, some of the proceeds go towards benefitting the Transgender Law Center to continue the crucial work Unity do for the LGBT community.

Real have also treated us to an all-new Ishod Wair Twin Tail deck for Skate Shop Day. With only 870 made in total these bad boys are super limited, and seeing as the Twin Tail is one of Real's most beloved shapes you'll have to be quick to get your hands on one. The Real Ishod Wair Skate Shop Day deck features the return of Ishod's iconic 'Catscratch' scratch off graphic, with symmetrical tigers in a timeless traditional tattoo style - and to make it even more exciting, this limited edition 'Blacked Out' version features all black plies with two purple X-band plies for a proper clean aesthetic that's guaranteed to thrill any ply enthusiast. It even comes with a free poster if that ain't enough!

Last but not least, we've also got some new decks featuring the iconic Skate Shop Day 'Support Your Local Skateshop' artwork by the one and only Mike Gigliotti. Always loved the Lottie's artwork with his sketchy, punk-inspired style so it's sick to see it on a deck with such a positive message. The DLX x Skate Shop Day 'Gigliotti' decks come in a range of sizes from 8.06" to 8.5" and even come in a variety of woodstains. As with all the other stuff these are pretty limited so if you don't want to miss out then you better act fast.

Skate Shop Day T-Shirts

Alongside the decks, we've also got some premium new tees featuring Mike Lottie's 'Support Your Local Skateshop' artwork with the added bonus of a CSC logo on the front! The Skate Shop Day 'Gigliotti Logo' T-Shirts come in a black colourway and feature a large back print of Mike Gigliotti's 'Support Your Local Skateshop' artwork with our CSC Scooby logo printed on the chest in white for a double whammy of supporting your local. Big shoutout to Sam from Welcome for sorting these out, they came out so sick!

New Balance 440 Skate Shop Day 

Finally, the legends over at New Balance have also got in on the Skate Shop Day action for the third time with a beautiful new colourway of their beloved 440 High. The New Balance x Skate Shop Day 440H comes in an ice cold cream and black colourway with a cream upper with a black tongue, black laces and black sole for a flawless aesthetic. They also feature a custom 'Every day is Skate Shop Day' clamp label on the tongue so you can show your support for local shops. What more could you want?
