Converse Cons' "Purple" Premiere Photos
Converse premiered their first full-length video, Purple, last night. They decided to break the obligatory status-quo of premiering their video at a huge Los Angeles theatre and opted for a more intimate venue in the East Village of New York City. It was a beautiful night with hungry eyes ready to feast upon the video featuring the likes of Louie Lopez, Sean Pablo, Jason Jessee and many more. For those of you who were not fortunate enough to catch the premiere, we had Mac Shafer cover the event with all of your favorite skaters. Also, when you get a chance to watch the video, remember this: Jake Johnson. —Lui Elliott

"Boys of Summer 2" ArticleThe cast of this second video rotated in and out on each trip. Since BOS is not a company so much as a group of friends, it’s a real mixed bag of potatoes.
