Ladies and Gentlemen, I am proud to announce that Mr Shaun Gregoire & Mr Justin Damer brought it home for DC this year!
Last weekend the "Best Damn Shop" Contest went down in Raleigh NC, and P5ive came home victorious! Big thanks to Todd at Vertical Urge and all of the other shops that came out and threw down! This contest was amazing truly amazing this year. Check out a little clip Allen shot below. Justin and Shaun definitely threw down for DC and we couldn't be happier for them both.
We have definitely had a blast each year that we've gone down for this contest, and this year was no exception. "Best Damn Shop" is quickly becoming one of the premier contests on the East Coast and we're stoked to have been a part of it once again. The guys a Vertical always show us a good time and this year was no exception. See you next year guys!

New from Vans Syndicate comes the military inspired DEVGRU spec. Check out what Vans has to say about it below:
"The DEVGRU Spec has been initiated by Syndicate to clearly define all product technology and house the feature benefit story. As materials, applications, impact/boardfeel technologies evolve at VANS they will be researched and developed thoroughly then given the DEVGRU specification so skaters clearly know what they are getting."
So basically anything with the DEVGRU label is built tough as SH*T to withstand anything you're going to put it through either on the board or in the club, so chew on that!
TNT II Mid Cup "DEVGRU" in Crye MultiCam
MultiCam® is a single camouflage pattern designed to help the wearer hide in varied environments, seasons, elevations, and light conditions. It was designed to address the real-world need for concealment in different environments, with one basic kit of gear. While there are many great location-specific patterns, MultiCam® is designed to work well across a very broad range of environmental conditions when observed in both the visual and near Infra Red (night vision) spectrums.
TNT Mid Cup "DEVGRU" in Ballistic Cordura (also featured on the P5ive Vans Shoe
Also featuring TecTuff Bulletproof Leather overlays. Weartest approved. CORDURA® underlays: "How a uniform performs is crucial to a soldier’s success on the battlefield. And it all begins from the ground up with boots that can handle everything and anything. Desert heat. Mountain snow. Swamps. Marshes. Combat. The unpredictable. The unimaginable. Military boots made with CORDURA® fabrics have been there and done it all - with exemplary results. Battle-tested and proven, they’re rugged, comfortable and absolutely necessary.
All DEVGRU Spec shoes will feature:
- Outlast® temperature regulating linings that keep the foot cool when it's hot/muggy and warm and dry when it's cold and raining outside. VANS is the first company in the industry to use Outlast® in skateboard shoes.
- EVA midsole heel cartridge. Lightweight heel protection.
- BoardFeel XD construction. Best balance of feel, durability, and grip. (Molded “waffle” cupsole)
- PU footbed with ImpactSorb™ Durable cushioning that prevents heel bruising.
All on the seriously crafted tip! Jesus!

Once again for those who missed it the first time around,
Palace 5ive will be releasing Nike SB's Todd Bratrud Designed "Skunk" Dunk High Premium tomorrow (Tuesday 4.20.10) at 12:00 noon.

After the release, for one day only we'll be running 25% off all Nike SB Footwear, Bags, & Accessories. Including all April Releases. In this economy, where big releases like this have become a bit of a rarity, a lot of shops have begun a practice of trying to milk your wallet by forcing you to buy their hats, tees, raffle tickets, prophylactics etc. Having been in the retail game for more than a few years we kind of look at this like a big load of bullsh*t. So if there's that pair that you've been wanting to pick up, but just haven't had the extra scratch laying around, this is your chance. Come get some.

"Fixed" Era 45 CA in Black / Golden Brown & Red Clay / Bitt Choc

Deathwish continues to kill the cruiser game... literally with the "Shank" cruiser. complete with evidence tag and bag.
