Few brands posses the degrees of overlapping appeal amongst fans of streetwear and skateboarding in the same way as London’s Palace Skateboards. Although the label has been outfitting skaters for some time now, drawing on a ‘90s back-alley approach to core goods, owner Lev Tanju has also watched as closely-meshed streetwear circles continue to embrace his designs. Palace and Reebok dropped clean iterations of the Reebok Workout trainer this year, followed up by teasers of a second drop. Strong graphics remain crucial for the brand who has now seen their logo as a mainstay amongst those who champion it as London’s own version of Supreme.
