Vans have been doing a number of BMX collaboration shoes lately between the team, a few shops and brands. Here’s their latest collaboration with Empire BMX that turned out so good! They took the Old Skool Pro and their Slides and gave it a proper Waylon treatment. This black on black with yellow cat eyes and an insole featuring Waylon on the inside for the shoe, and cat eyes on the slides. The Old Skool Pro shoe has the BMX specific Wafflecup BMX cupsole and sole that give you plenty of grip and support while out riding. These are available exclusively at Empire BMX only for $89.95 in sizes 7.5 – 13 for the shoes or $44.95 for the slides or both for $119.95 if you want the kit! Get on these before they’re gone. Check out more photos and details below!
Fit Bike Co. dropped a new F-Log where Tom Dugan catches up with Matt Nordstrom to get a look at his new signature Mixtape frame colorway, along with the specs and details. You also get a look at him putting his own touch on the graphics, and some riding footage as well. Things are pretty quiet due to the shutdown, but they made the best of it with this one.

Here’s one we’re sure a ton of people are going to be stoked on! Bob Scerbo has decided it’s time to release the full “Skapegoat #11” video online now that the DVD’s have sold out and they have no plans on making more! This is 14 minutes of pure goodness from Austin, Texas with some of the final sessions on the T1 ramp before it was torn down with no shortage of familiar faces from Joe Rich and Garrett Byrnes to Sergio Layos, Brian Hunt, Tom Dugan, Joseph Frans, Clint Reynolds, Matty Aquizap, Will Blount, Adam Baker and many more. It’s a bummer that the ramp is gone, but this is an awesome way to remember it. Hit play and take it all in!
