Transworld Skateboarding started off in 1983, but the oldest, still-running major skate mag was started two years before that. Thrasher was founded in 1981, has given out the Skater of the Year award since 1990, and has produced or collaborated on countless skate films. And now in 2010, they’re following in the footsteps of fellow San Francisco native Keith Hufnagel by expanding the brand’s offerings to include some classic skate sneakers. The Baker lowtop, Muir and Buchanan Dog hightops each have familiar design elements, but each monochromatic suede pair has its own feelthanks to the magazine’s immortal script embroidered on the heels. Check out shots of a full range of colors for all three models and be on the lookout for these at stateside skateshops; they’re out now in Japan at mita sneakers.
