Umbro x Palace collection

Skateboarders and football might not seem like a natural fit, but sometimes, initial appearances can be deceptive. That’s certainly the case with London’s Palace, one of the smartest, most stylish skating brands in the world, who Umbro have collaborated with on a new limited edition collection. The Palace skate team are all massive football fans, and were particularly keen to get involved with Umbro and some of the items in our archive.

“Loads of skateboarders I know are crazy for football” says Palace main man Lev Tanju; “It’s the same set of skills that you need I guess: balance, coordination, kicking stuff about with your feet”.
