Diamond & Grizzly Grip Team Rider, Paul Rodriguez preps for the X Games Munich by going through some pretty rigorous cultural training with Corinna (a native German) – from getting attacked by a German Shephard (and almost losing the family jewels) to selecting the best German Cake to eat. Oh, and of course how to say 360 kickflip in German (we’re not even going to try to spell it out for you)…
We’re proud to announce Diamond Supply Co. will be back at the prestigious Bread & Butter Tradeshow in Berlin this July. Please stop by our booth to preview our upcoming collections and meet our team. We look forward to seeing you there.
Diamond Supply Co. presents the #DiamondLife Afterparty. After each stop of Street League 2013 we invite the 20 SLS Pros back out on to the course for a 20 minute encore jam session. At the end the pro who our 5 SLS judges and guest judge Jeron Wilson decides had the best session walks away with $5,000 cash and a $5,000 bottle of champagne. In Kansas City it was Shane O’neill who came out on top. For more info on the 2013 Street League Nike SB World Tour visit http://streetleague.com

From humble beginnings of being Kanye West’s personal barber to his current position as one of the creative minds behind DONDA, entrepreneur Ibn Jasper took to the social media platform, Instagram, to announce his position as Diamond Supply Co.‘s Conceptual Designer for the newly launched Black Tag line. During the fall 2012 campaign, Diamond Supply Co. and Ibn Jasper teamed up on the successful launch of their collaborative capsule collection. With the anticipation of what is next for the Black Tag line, be on the lookout for the return of the eponymous Ibn Jasper shoe in November. The sneaker, teased here, will feature an upper that consists of premium oiled suede complimenting buffalo plaid and gold hardware. Using a mixture of genuine chocolate leather accents atop a classic gum sole, quality is the staple of the Black Tag line. Stay tuned for what’s next between Diamond Supply Co. and Ibn Jasper.
