Louie Lopez's "Cons CTAS Pro Colorway" Party

Two-thousand-seventeen has already been a big year for Louie Lopez. His recent Spitfire part scorched a hole in the Internet and just last night Cons surprised him with a colorway of their CTAS Pro shoe. To celebrate, Highland Park Bowl was rented out and Louie's family and friends joined the party for a night of pizza, drinks and bowling. —Joe Hammeke

    With the premiere of Purple, Converse took a couple of guys on a demo trip down the Western Coast, from Sacramento all the way down to Long Beach. Needless to say, it was more of a victory vacation than actual work.

    The desert can be a place of spiritual awakening and artistic exploration, and the Pyramid Country posse are sure as hell diving deep into those waters. This video may leave the viewer with some questions, but there’s no uncertainty about the skating: these dudes RIP! Long live the full-length vid!

    He’s been good since he was a toddler, but Louie Lopez has grown to be one of the best skateboarders on the planet in the past few years, and this Purple part is a window into Louie’s world. Looks like a damn fine place to live if you ask us.
