“It’s finally here! UK Spitfire Wheels and HUF rider Jed Cullen has put in the work for this one to bring out a heavy collab part. Effortlessly killing it in the streets of Southampton and Bristol to the gnarly DIY transitions in Brighton and London, Jed is a certified ripper.”
Growing up as an army brat, Made dons an assortment of military-inspired garments within the new collection such as the MA-1 Tonal Jacket and matching jacquard muted tonal camo World Wide Fleece Pants. The season further draws upon 90s street-fashion through pieces such as the 10K Track Jacket, Tofino Hooded Polartec Pullover and Easy Reversible Satin Jacket, all takes on iconic sports team memorabilia and athletic-wear.
Rounding out the Holiday collection is an homage to San Francisco’s Embarcadero Plaza — a staple of 1990s-era skate subculture — through a dedicated range featuring an ‘EMB Contact Sheet’ collage pattern composed of classic images from the period by photographer Bryce Kanights.
Highlighted footwear styles include an update on the court-inspired Boyd, as well as a carryover collaboration with world-renowned fabric manufacturer British Millerain Co. utilizing a specially treated Bushwax 4 “Staywax” material across the Classic Hi shoe.

North Skateboard Magazine recently caught up with Lance Dawes to discuss his history with SLAP Magazine, skateboarding, photography and the HUF x SLAP Collaboration.
Check out a preview of the interview below, and click here to read the full version.
Who is harder to shoot? Skateboarders or A-list movie stars?
Skateboard photographers are the greatest photographers in the world- whether they know it or not. I guarantee 90 percent of the photogs in the world would not be able to shoot skating. A-listers don’t get hurt or chased by cops to have their photos taken.
How did the Huf x Slap collaboration come about?
I had nothing to do with that. I think Keith wanted to do something with Slap, and got in touch with High Speed Productions, with Tony Vitello, and they worked out a deal. They told me they were going to do something, but I had no idea what they were doing until I saw it on Instagram like everybody else. Haha! But me and Keith are doing something that comes out soon; I have a couple photos on t-shirts. They just had a big party for the Slap/Huf thing last Thursday in New York and they included me with a bunch of photos. I guess people equate me with Slap, but Slap’s not just me. We’ve gotta mention Mark Whiteley and Joe Brook. Those guys were the second wave of Slap and they did as much, if not more, than I did. I’m thankful to Keith that they involved me in the party with Slap, but Slap was a whole bunch of us. I would never take credit alone for Slap- It was a lot of people.
Are you going to do a book? Either of your own work, or some Big Brother-style ‘best of’ the mag? Or, I dunno, a novel. Just any kind of book.
A Best of Slap book could be rad, but that’s out of my hands. I’m working on a project now that will be tons of my outtakes and never-before-seen photos. I have it narrowed down to 2,000 images so I still have a ways to go in the editing stage. I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s done.
