The temperature outside has been below zero for weeks, so we been having fun with what we have for indoor parks in Minnesota. Nothing crazy, just loving blading. Hope you enjoy!

The New Jeph Howard Pro is built on the same iconic boot as the traditional SL mold, but it is constructed with an entirely redesigned upper, reflecting Jeph Howard‘s admiration for simple, no nonsense shoes. Tan canvas mixed with grey and olive highlights atop the low profile, lightweight boot design creates a timeless look crossed with incredible performance.
The perfectly grooved backslide plate and baseless design allows the skater to experience a lower center of gravity, direct contact while grinding, easy transitions during switch-ups and near-perfect control on boot and soul tricks. An added strip of fabric is placed between the soulframe and boot shell to reduce clacking, giving you that solid ‘paahk’ sound every time you land.

Recently i had to travel to Minneapolis MN for a week on business and stayed with a good friend of mine Jeph Howard. Over a period of 3 days we got to collaborate on a project thanks to The Conference.
Jeph Howard has been killing the blade game for years on end. He works a job 5 days a week, has a awesome girlfriend and finds time to blade hard as hell in between.
He’s the kind of guy that wakes you up in the morning with a nice smoothie to get the day rolling. This man has been brutally pushing himself towards the top as long as I can remember.
Meeting him 10 years ago in the baggy days, til this day he still carries himself as a positive individual upon our sport. Nothing gets in this guys way.
He appreciates a good seshin and a cold beer after wards. Respect is the only word that comes to mind when i think of Jeph Howard, expect to see him shredding the streets plenty more years to come. – Paul John.
