Antwerp’s Lockwood Skateboardstore is one of the most influential and longest running stores in Belgium. From selling the best products that skateboard-brands have to offer to contributing to the local skate scene with their own team and videos, Lockwood has solidified their spot in the past 15 years. To commemorate this fact, they have produced a hard copy book with publication from Vijf890, who also publish Fluff Magazine. The book offers a retrospective look into the store’s history. The book was released on December 20th with a grand event and Vernissage Exhibition hosted by Lockwood and Avenue. Patta’s own in-house designer and graphic artist Vincent van de Waal was the guest of honor to hold this exhibition to accompany all the festivities. Below is a small exhibition recap.
Congratulations to Lockwood, on to the next 15!

“Hair” is the most popular Musical of all time. It has been translated in every language and staged all over the world, generating pyramids of arab money. Its composer lives an intensely private life somewhere in New York. He never gave any interview and seem to ignore the cult going on about him. His name? Galt MacDermot. The mission? “Lookin4Galt”.
“Lookin4Galt” is a fresh documentary by French filmmakers Nico Venacio and Mathieu Rochet, collectively known as “Gasface”. The movie centers on the search for the legendary musician and composer Galt MacDermot, the man behind many great works, among them a whole plethora of songs sampled and used in Hip Hop classics. Watch the full documentary below.

With a creative partnership whose relationship dates back to 2002, Nike and MEDICOM TOY come together once again to release a new collection that brings iconic sport classics together with a legendary toy.
Releasing the Nike x BE@RBRICK Lunar Force 1 Collection on December 20, limited versions of the Nike Lunar Force 1 and BE@RBRICKs will be rendered new as one collective ensemble.
For this release, two Lunar Force 1s echo earlier projects using modified silhouettes. One version parallels that inaugural collaboration from 2004, while the second carries the palette from last year’s BE@RBRICK release. Both bear special branding on the tongue and insole.
The Nike Lunar Force 1 presents a legendary design remixed with the modern innovations of today. Updating the construction process with Nike’s seamless Hyperfuse technology applied to the upper along with Nike’s Lunarlon cushioning system anchored in the sole offers a lighter ride with unparalleled cushioning made for comfort.
Both shoes will be available in limited quantities at Patta on December 20 (Sorry, no reservations or pre-orders). To finish off the collection, a pair of matching special edition BE@RBRICK Lunar Force 1 100% and 400% toys will be simultaneously available in limited numbers worldwide to accompany this release.
Nike Lunar Force 1 Fuse NRG “Bearbrick” (black/white-neutral grey) US8-12 €150,00
Nike Lunar Force 1 Fuse NRG “Bearbrick” (white/college blue-gold post) US8-12 €150,00
Since Japan’s toy company MEDICOM TOY brand debuted in 1996 and the BE@RBRICK, a bear shaped block-style figure created from the concept of a digital-like teddy bear, made its first appearance in 2001, art, sport and fashion have been represented on a new canvas on what seems to be an innumerable amount of occasions.
When the Air Force 1 BE@RBRICK toy released ten years ago, the fanaticism of sneakers and toys merged. The first Nike x MEDICOM shoe followed — a Japan-exclusive SB Dunk in 2004. The latest collaboration celebrates a new chapter in sneaker innovation with the Lunar Force 1, once again pairing the creative worlds of toy and sportswear design.

In the tradition of The Source Magazine’s “Unsigned Hype”-column we like to discover new and upcoming music talent from The Netherlands. Vincent Noske is a talented 18 year old representing Amsterdam Zeeburg. Inspired musically by acts such as Madvillain, he adopted the moniker Quirinus and started to focus on rapping and producing about a year ago. His first official track “Amsterdam” is produced by Ruben Bertholet and samples the sounds from a cheese tv-commercial. When Quirinus heard the track, he got inspired to write about his love and passion for his hometown, Amsterdam. In the 3 verses, he tried to capture different aspects and elements of the city. Check out the track below.

Creative manufacturer “Himmelspach Publishing” launched “Eternal Fame”, the most challenging game of Memory ever created. The game revisits memorable moments in sports history and presents them in a new manner from unexpected angles. Shoes from the adidas archives, originally worn by outstanding international athletes who made sports history, were captured in photographs. The archive includes such exemplars as the shoes Fritz Walter wore for the 1954 World Cup, the pair worn by Muhammad Ali when he won Olympic gold in 1960 in Rome, the running shoes of Ethiopian legend and record holder Haile Gebrselassie or Steffi Graf’s 1988 sneakers, that she’s laced up for the Grand Slam and while winning Olympic gold in Seoul – glorious moments made in sports heaven.
The memory game comprises 72 cards making up 36 pairs. What might sound like an easy task quickly turns out to be quite a tricky challenge, given that the images on a pair of cards are not identical: each couple depicts a pair of trainers on one card – many of which are signed – and the sole of the shoe on the other. The game comes complete with a poster showing all the sports legends and the story behind the shoes theyʼve worn.
The collectors edition of the Eternal Fame adidas Memo Game is a great holiday gift for sneaker enthousiasts and now available at Patta for €40.00.events
