  1. Five stars trip

    Converse reveals the One Star World Tour 2018, sixteen days of traveling through the United States, Paris and London with the team that we like so much. And for this year’s edition, it looks like it’s the young skaters (European for some) in the spotlight with a Felipe Bartolome on fire and a breathtaking Kaue Cossa. All this announces only good things for the future.
  2. Ciao

    Little information has been surfacing about "Ciao" besides it being a new, mastered H.D. 16:9 full-length filmed entirely in N.Y.C. by Ricardo Napoli, already the author of the 2017 "Making It Happen" which followed a similar concept. Ricardo appears to be very much into documenting not just the established locals, but also the prowess of 'skate tourists' visiting from worldwide, and developing their take on interpreting the Big Apple. His Brazilian connections run deep as in addition to Kaue Cossa having a full partFelipe Oliveira repeatedly appears, not too far from a more American, but just as exotic Connor Kammerer who comes through with over a minute of opening clips. Even certain French speaking heads such as Bastien Regeste or Quentin De Briey earned their clips! But a major link Ricardo especially seems fond of cultivating is his bond to Japan, the scene of which gets the heaviest overall representation here, with full parts for Kento Yoshioka and Ryo Motohashi.

  3. Taking the L?

    By now you are well aware of the Felipe Oliveira case, and you can already guess that he used a trip to NYC to reach new levels of coolness, even putting himself in danger in the process! But this edit also gives us a chance to get more acquainted with that Kaue guy that might have a more orthodox approach, but sill drips of relaxed technique.

  4. Style first

    Obviously when we find Kaue Cossa and Shin Sanbongi together, we can talk about style. It's almost amazing how their two ways of skating contrast but make it incredibly good when put together on a video. On one hand the raw and violent technique, in front of the ease and the fluidity of a real asphalt Surfer. The Chrystie guys definitely have nothing to envy to the others. The proof drop them a few days in Spain and voila !

  5. Felipe Alert!

    Heading out to Latin America, now, with a fine selection of the Cons heads, and they sure as hell tackle it all in style, as those guys have gotten us used to! Let's salute our personal favorite Felipe Oliveira, that plays home, here, but mostly plays to his very own tune, as he always does…
  6. Os Selvagens da rua

    Let's put this Easter Sunday to good use and ponder the old adage that states that, if skateboarding is all about having fun with your friends, if it ever gets serious, the Brazilians always win at it… Maybe because they have a better understanding of pleasure? Proof here in images, on the street side of things, far far away from future Olympian stadiums…
  7. Possibly Maybe

    Although the title of the video seems to imply many a thing hypothetical, what certainly isn't is the Brazilians' proneness to shred some of the roughest, most absurd-looking street terrain known to man with tricks that realistically shouldn't even get close to happening there due to the average urethane-to-crust ratio. Well that's exactly what you get in "Possibly Maybe", featuring a chunk of the Brazilian Converse roster (including Felipe Oliviera with some of his best footage to date), interpreted through the lens and mind of Hernando "Ñaño" Ramirez. Amongst its population of over twelve million, Ñaño is São Paulo's skateboarding pimp, whose creative genius tends to mark everything he touches; take a gander at his work with Asco Skateboarding to catch a picture of his mental landscape - and then the VHS will only make even more sense.

  8. Felipe alert!

    Our coverage of Brazilian skateboarding would have put the idea in your head that we dig it spicy and diverse… And be reassured, it hasn't changed! But, let's just be honest, here, we do have our favorite, and it is Felipe Oliveira! This new edit from Cons Brazil should have more than a few of you siding with us on this one. It will also confirm how skateboarding can be practiced in many beautiful ways, wether we talk Kauê Cossa or Victor Süssekind… The ill shit, we tell ya!

  9. Elevation

    This should be the only thing you really have to watch this week! There, we said it. Why? Well, because that Victor dude is on another level of understanding of his board than most, and he can therfore make you shiver, sweat and burst out laughing with one lipslide… Oh, and Felipe Oliveira shakes the ledge game hard with one body motion.
  10. Brazilian Week: "Nightlines"

    All right, let's do this! Inspired by the week spent in Rio de Janeiro for the MIMPI Film Fest, why not share with you our discoveries via a few videos that expose the richness of Brazilian skate culture? Proof here with this Cons local edit, showing how diversely skateboarding is practiced over there, far from our preconceptions of comp killers and flatland superheroes… Oh, and keep that Felipe Oliveira name in mind. Just a hint!
