The Best Skateboard Collaboration This Year
The Simpsons, arguably one of the most popular shows ever on television, has a new outlet for collector items. The cast of the show has lent their likeness to our favorite skateboard brand, Penny Skateboards. Characters of the show appear across seven unique different cruiser boards.
The complete decks (they come with trucks and wheels) are available in two different sizes, 22″ and 27″. Bart appears on two iterations.. a 22″ white with white wheels model, as well as a 27″ blue variation, with the Bart Simpson wind-up doll cartoon. If the star of the show isn’t your scene, younger sister Maggie also has her own mock up, but outside that, it’s the colorful characters that are the supporting cast that get the focus. Itchy & Scratchy, Otto, Ralph and even Mr. Burns get their time to shine.
Since you need something to wear as you cruise down the boardwalk or to the coffee shop, we found some fitting accessories and sneakers to complete the look. Boards run between $12o-$130, and all are available at Penny Skateboards.
The Jones-C sneaker by Clearweather Brand, $145, is a low-cut white leather style with wax laces.

These two took a break from the Krusty the Clown Show just long enough to have their portrait recreated on the Itch & Scratchy 22", $119.99.
The Maggie 22", $119.99, comes complete with purple wheels emblazoned with this favorite, speechless, character's name.
Wear them to skate, wear them to swim, try the Tropicano Swim Shorts by Boardies, $65.72.
The Otto 27", $129.99, lets you ride in style on a purple hued cruiser, with yellow trucks and black wheels.
The Shorebreak Jacket by Grizzly Griptape, $60, is a lightweight pullover, with mock neck and hem drawcords.

The Excellent 22", $119.99, has a slick two tone colorway, with rich teal up top, and a cool seafoam on the bottom. It's all made even better when Mr. Burns sneaky self is sketched out.
If you need a little more foot room, and prefer a more colorful board, get Bart on the Bart 27", $129.99.
Pair your board with equally cheeky and weird socks. Try the Monster Mash Socks by Stance, $18.
