Highsnobiety

The Highsnobiety x Paddle8 joint auction launched last week and is live for bids until June 24. Amongst its rare collectables, toys, and artworks, here we're shining a light on some particularly special lots from the consignment: a selection of extremely coveted skate decks featuring designs from some of the biggest names in street art.

When we teamed up with Paddle8, we called on each of our respective networks to send their most prized possessions to auction. Being a platform that regularly champions the world's most accomplished street artists, it was no surprise that some of the biggest grails from the skate deck archives were among the consignments we received.

See all of the most exciting skate decks below, and don't miss your chance to bid before it's too late.
