Here is another new fitted from the Estate Los Angeles family. This time Estate teamed up with premiere snowboard and skate camp Windells. This Estate fitted cap is constructed of heavy denim panels, with Ã¢Â€ÂœHOODÃ¢Â€Â in 3D embroidery referencing Windells’ location at Mt. Hood, Oregon. The Windells name appears in a repeating blue and white stitched pattern on the rear and side panels. The Estate LA x Windells cap is available exclusively at the camp, and 50 pieces will be offered as give-aways for BurtonÃ¢Â€Â™s 4th annual Abominable Snowjam which begins July 10th.

The shoe features a black and baby blue colorway detailed with electric green, hot pink and sparkly laces.
