We love Kinfolk

Kinfolk is the leading entertaining magazine for young food enthusiasts and adventure-seekers. It's a beautifully compiled magazine and volume twelve is making series impacts on our desks this week.

"Summer is a time to lounge around and do as little as you can: Sit in some trees, lie in the grass and stare at the clouds. Here are a few more ways to watch the long days turn into night."

Other pertinent advise is to 'Give things time' as the joy of delayed gratification outweighs the waiting and to 'Master a new hobby' as real joy is found in pursuing something just for the sake of the journey.





It's a point that resonated with us. We as folk, in general, spend the vast majority of our time focusing on getting somewhere. If we could all learn to enjoy the journey a little more we'd spend more time revelling.

Take it easy brother, have a look at the view.

STAN SMITH - A LOT OF PEOPLE NOW THINK I’M A SHOE

Starting next week and running for a fortnight the tennis courts are going to be full up every night as the Wimbledon tournament is upon us and people to tennis crazy.

Tennis is a pretty good sport to drop in and out of. It’s tough to master, but for the casual player you can dress up in your crispest whites and even if you can’t necessarily control where it’s going, whacking a tennis ball as hard as you can is pretty satisfying.



You can celebrate however you see fit with these Adidas skateboarding special edition Stan Smith trainers. Smith (a former World Number One) has lent his name and more impressively his famous upper lip hair to this classic Adidas silhouette, redesigned with some killer modern twists.

Here is a video of Stan Smith assuring us that “a lot of people now think I'm a shoe.”

VANS SYNDICATE SEAN CLIVER PACK

The Vans Syndicate Sean Cliver Pack pays tribute to skateboarding’s premier designer whose first graphic was over 20 years ago for Vans skate legend Ray Barbee on his first pro model for Powell-Peralta.



The Vans Syndicate Sean Cliver Pack is available as Authentic Pro “S” and Mid-Skool Pro “S” editions in Vans original checkerboard patterns with custom Sean Cliver artworked sockliners.

Both editions ship with ‘90s inspired artwork on a miniature skateboard deck which in principle is ridiculous, but they’re great looking little guys… just don’t try and ride them.

BROTHERHOOD OF THE FEET: EUROPE VS BRASIL - FRIENDLY



Hey, have you heard that the Word Cup is happening? Damn right you have because everyone from sports manufacturers (justified) to tech firms (loosely connected we guess) to car tires, fast food, crisps and soft drinks (really tentative now…) are sticking their logos all over Brazil and shouting about the beautiful game.

All this aside, it’s great to see someone dive right in there with some love and make waves for the right reasons. Nike SB sent five of its premier European riders - Wieger van Wageningen, Denny Pham, Maxime Geronzi, Dani Lebron and Kyron Davis - to the epicentre of football to visit their Brazilian brethren, Luan Oliveira and Fabio Cristiano in this new film ‘Brotherhood of the Feet’.






Brazil is a country most commonly identified with its rich and passionate football culture, but a similar nationwide fervour is also reserved for skateboarding. Football and skateboarding are indeed very different, yet in Brazil they are both intrinsically linked by their birthplace – the streets.

The film is a visual narrative of their journey through the streets of these two unique cities in one of the most vibrant, welcoming and culturally exciting countries on earth.
