Celebrating our long-standing relationship with Converse CONS, we stripped their timeless Jack Purcell of its innocence and stitched our own mantra, “Look Alive,” onto the tongue. The phrase has become our go-to way to yell at friends and rally them for a night of questionable decisions or pester them during their next hangover.

The shoe’s exterior is a discreet mix of premium leather and suede. Like a good party, the details seem simplistic from far away, but become more enticing and deliberate up close. The interior is directly influenced by the spontaneity of New York nightlife, featuring club flyers you’d find on any corner near our HQ in Brooklyn. Accented with gold eyelets and a gold embossed Jenkem, it all sits on top of a bone outsole. Boasting reflective 3M along the heel and a satin draped tongue, our shoe gets more seductive as the day goes on.

But that’s all just stupid technical lingo to tell you that the Jenkem JP Pro is designed to welcome the unexpected.

Getting lost and finding secret raves, friends for the night, crusty skate spots and making them all yours.

jenkemmag – Remember the after credit montages in skate videos? You know, after the VHS tape went black and you’d think the video would be over, only to find one more party montage? Raspa’s Tapes is kind of an homage to that, where we throw our friend and filmer Alex Raspa in random places and watch him get drunken footy. Hopefully this Raspa Tape conveys the excitement around the Baker video, which aside maybe from Mark Suciu’s Verso or the inevitable footage of someone skating on a Tesla Cybertruck, was the year’s most hyped up video.

JENKEM - A Friendly Reminder to Treat Your Filmers Well | jenkemmag

JENKEM – A Friendly Reminder to Treat Your Filmers Well | jenkem…

jenkemmag – Eugene Kang, who runs Terminal Skate Shop out of his New York City apartment, made this quick PSA reminding skateboarders, and especially sponsored ones, of a few things they can do to help the filmers who put them on in the first place. So we wanted to share Eugene’s five tips to keeping your filmer happy: 1. “BE FUCKIN’ PATIENT.” (Don’t sweat the filmer for your clip as soon as you get home.) 2. “DON’T WASTE THE FILMER’S TIME.” (Don’t be late and don’t punk out when you realize the spot/trick is harder than you imagined.) 3. “FUCKIN’ HOOK UP YOUR FILMER.” (Any money you can chip in towards buying the filmer drinks, food, or weed will be greatly appreciated and make them want to work with you in the future.) 4. “BLESS THAT MOTHERFUCKER.” (When you have extra product, give it to the filmer.) 5. “Take your fuckin’ homie with you.” (Once you get sponsored, don’t ditch your longtime filmer for the famous company filmer.) Hopefully, Eugene’s thoughts resonate with you, and the next time you go out filming you might consider carrying the camera bag or at least letting your filmer take an extra swig of your Gatorade/backwash. Eugene: “It’s just about loyalty and taking care of your friend. Because at the end of the day he’s not just a filmer, he’s your homie. And if you move up, he should move up with you. If you come up, he should come up with you…Those are the guys that are gonna get you put on, and I hope in turn you put them on.”
