To support the new One Star Pro launch, Converse Cons teamed up with Sidewalk mag to explore seaside resorts across the North of England. And so, for one freezing cold week in January 2016, the UK Converse Cons team consisting of Matlok Bennett-Jones, Ollie Lock, Harry Lintell, Dom Henry, Mike Arnold and TM Jerome Campbell, (Jamie Platt was absent due to doing his ankle a serious mischief late last year) layered up, packed themselves into a convoy of vehicles and ventured north to see what a handful of Northern seaside towns had to offer to a bunch of skateboarders deep in January.
On the agenda were infamous holiday venues Blackpool, Whitby, Bridlington and Skegness, along with a few other hidden gems that were hit up along the way. The weather was as bitterly cold as you’d expect but the crew came through. We’re stoked on the result and we hope you are too…
