CONS Rust Belt Boon

“In the 60s and 70s, as America’s manufacturing and industrial complex came apart at its rusty fasteners, the Rust Belt was born—wide awake and never to sleep again—and for the last 50 years it’s slowly worn itself down to a corroded nub.”

Converse recruited Mike Anderson, Zered Bassett, Jake Johnson, Al Davis, and Aaron Herrington to film their latest video “Rust Belt Boon” far from any prefab skateparks or indoor “training facilities”.

While cities in America’s heartland like Detroit, Cleveland and Pittsburgh have plenty to offer a skater in their downtown areas in the form of rails, ledges and architecture, it’s the unique components of these particular cities that were most appealing..the wastelands.

Blown out buildings and vacant lots long forgotten my many are the perfect environments for creative and resourceful skateboarders. Adapt or die.

“Rust Belt Boon” appeared on the Berrics website earlier this month and an accompanying article in the February issue of The Skateboard Mag. Check out a gallery of images shot by Jon Coulthard.

The CONS crew recently took a trip to test their luck on the desolate landscape that was once America’s industrial heartland and found gold amongst the rust that was spread throughout it.

The Skateboard Mag has posted a gallery of photos from their trip and in case you missed Rust Belt Boon yesterday, you can watch it here.
