Press Break – Kryptonics in GQ Magazine and Gap Stores
KRYPTONICS SKATEBOARD IN GQ MAGAZINE, IN GAP STORE SIGNAGE AND IN ADS FOR GQ X GAP BEST NEW MENSWEAR DESIGNERS IN AMERICA
Santa Fe Springs, CA — Kryptonics is proud to announce its inclusion in one of menswear’s most anticipated collaborations, the GQ x Gap Best New Menswear Designers in America collection. A Kryptonics skateboard is used in the collection’s promotional imagery seen in the October Issue of GQ magazine, as well as in signage used in GAP stores and online.
The Kryptonics Ocean 27-Inch Skateboard is featured in conjunction with fellow Southern California brand NSF, one of this year’s nominees. Kryptonics draws inspiration from the laid-back, beach and skate scene, infusing traditional skate influences with a modern look, while NSF offers new iterations of their signature Los Angeles-inspired distressed denim, hard leather pieces and work wear-influenced men’s shirting.
The GQ x Gap Best New Menswear Designers in America collection is a celebration of innovation and individuality in menswear and often sells out just weeks after its release — with many pieces selling out on the day of the collection’s debut.
The Kryptonics Ocean 27-Inch Skateboard is available at Sports Authority, with a suggested retail price of $39.99.The board’s 9-ply maple deck includes 80AB standard grip tape for added traction. The heavy-duty 5-inch aluminum trucks attach PVC-injected wheels for a steady ride that’s as smooth as it is stylish.
