What if god said that video is what you needed? Bronze56k is back with another amazing video celebrating their newest collaboration with DC Shoes. They revived the OG DC Shoes Clocker 2 from back in the days to once again make the chunky-shoe-lovers happy.
As usual, Peter Sidlauskas did a great job editing this one.
The moment when the “Clockwork Orange” theme music started playing and the titles popped up we already got the feeling that this is going to be a very well-made video. We weren’t wrong. After filming and editing the Noah NYC video we didn’t see much from Mr. Alex Greenberg but of course, he didn’t put his camera aside. On the contrary. After watching his new 26 minutes long work “Much Needed After A Long” we saw what he and his friends had been up to and all we can say is that it was worth the wait.
Great work Alex! Nice to see a lot of familiar faces together with amazing skaters we have never seen before. Another instantNew York City classic!
Watching this video you can’t help but get the feeling that the (once) big DC shoes are entering limbo. About two years ago they decided to scrap a plethora of big-name riders and started to focus more on a nostalgia led movement based on the east coast.
Some people from the Philly based Sabotage crew and NYC based John Shanahan got pushed to the forefront, while at the same time, Josh Kalis got elevated to ICON status. The rekindled interest in his older shoe designs is an authentic movement but let us not forget that DC also sponsor: Thaynan Costa, Evan Smith, Tristan Funkhouser and to some extent Wes and Tiago who somehow represent a bridge between the old and the “new” identity of the brand.
Still, DC seems to be somewhat torn between the multiple lanes it tries to occupy leading with “Street Sweeper” to a somewhat eclectic video that somehow manages to balance all these different facets of the “game”. But the question remains what is next and how will they keep reinventing themselves to stay relevant.
Maybe you “the viewer” can deduct an early answer from this video. Enjoy!
Once again it’s LurkNYC in the streets next to the homeless and working class people. Although I’m actually an avid fan of VX footage, I’m always impressed by LurkNYC’s HD clips that still manage to keep that certain “roughness” alive somehow.
