“Thank you all for coming out. Say a few words about the film… It’s trying to capture the thing about skaters skating together, rather than showing one skater skating alone. Enjoy…”
– Pontus Alv introducing Manhattan Days at the CONS x Polar Collection Launch in Brooklyn NY on 09.25.2014
It was quiet outside of the premiere venue in Brooklyn.
But it was absolutely packed inside.
Nils Svensson photos from the Manhattan Days project encouraged detailed analysis and assessment.
Dane Brady and Aaron Herrington.
Fresh Jersey barriers presented the CONS x Polar Collection. Could use a few wallride marks, no?
The CONS x Polar shoe. Available in a variety of color and ankle support options.
EIi Reed and JZ.
Nils Svensson photos, worthy of any permanent collection.
The diamond plated wedges from the film were there to size up.
The cart and portable pole jam were on site too. The Skate and Create vibe was strong.
Free Slices? Get that value!
Polar x Pillsbury collab?
Beanie on top of the hood. Al Davis, always killing it.
The video was on loop for multiple viewings. Delatorre sighting!
Skate and Create advocate and Polar Skateboard Co. CEO Pontus Alv.
Lightweight, super grippy, and cushioned with the Lunarlon insole…
Had to take the ’em out for a few scuffs after the video. The hype was too strong!
