Globe Sabre 2021 Black/Grey/Multi

The Sabre from Globe is an iconic skate shoe that is a tank! You'll be very impressed with this new colorway that is reminiscent of the famous SB colorway, the chromeball. By the way, just like the OGs, these shoes are well built and also feel incredibly solid and durable.

  • Ultra heavy duty skate style with step in sock liner
  • Integrated inner sock for a secure fit & ankle support
  • Nitrocel airbag sole for impact control
  • Globe's S-Trac for ultimate grip and flex

I would highly recommend these Globe Sabres to anyone who likes the bulky shoes or laments the death of the Chet Thomas IV like me. You can buy these over at Ebay.

The Nike SB Carpet Company is yet another collab between Nike and carpet company skate shop. We have featured this carpet company sb a few days ago and today we found out that this skate shoe looks better distressed - revealing a yellow layer underneath its white leather and “Royal Pulse” fabric upper.

Honestly, I am not into highs, and I think this version would look better in low-tops. Anyway, it feels also that Nike SB is running all their dunk motifs into the ground - as this ain't the first tearaway they've done. I don't like the pre-aged midsoles also. In fact, I am using Salon care 40s to whiten all my sb dunks' yellow midsoles.

Carpet Company Nike SB Release Date

Carpet Company Skate brand released the carpet company nike dunks sb over the weekend. However, a wider release is slated for February 26, which will land on Nike’s website. Expect to see carpet company nike sb raffles, right after the release too.

Where to Skate In Manila - Skate Shoes PH

Despite the growing community of skateboarders here in the Philippines, skateboarding still carries a stigma, as many still consider skateboarders as some sort of rebels (worse: dugyots LOL)

Skateboarders here in our country have to resort to streets as they don't have a lot of options when it comes to skating areas. As such, they skate at night, when the streets are empty. Some set up their skating "ramps" and/or grind rails in abandoned areas. While there some who dare to skate in places that don't really allow skateboarding such as promenades and sidewalks.

As of this writing, there are still no laws or regulations on skateboarding in our country. In contrast, countries like in the U.S. or U.K. have lots of skate parks, as well as skateboarding laws that require skaters to wear protective equipment.

So, Where to Skate In Manila?

Thankfully, there are some skate parks/spots in Metro Manila where you can pursue freedom from the limits of your minds. 

Here are some skate spots/parks in Manila to name the few:

  • Jackass Project Skatepark in Pasig City
  • Bonifacio Global City
  • The Streets of San Juan
  • Mendiola
  • Vitas Park, Tondo
  • Lawton Post Office 
  • Manila Skate Park
  • Mountain Dew Skate Park
  • Vitas Skate Park and Aquatics

Suede Vans Sport

Suede Vans Sport
aka Epoch Sport boasts one of the most recognizable silhouettes in the industry, and thanks to its deep-rooted heritage as the go-to skate shoe way back in the 90s, even to this day. The brand has indeed etched its name into the annals of history. 

Like the original version, which was released all the way back in 1994, the Vans Sport aka Epoch Sport features many of the Vans signatures that we all know and love: that low-top silhouette, the waffle outsole, and the extremely '90s looking “V” stripe at the side. The Vans Sport has already had an impressive colorway releases this year, including this Suede Vans Sport in black/white that is now on sale for only $29.95
