  • Complex Magazine & 50 Greatest Streetwear Brands

    I'm a little bit late on posting this, but back in June, BOBBY HUNDREDS wrote a really nice piece for Complex Magazine listing out (in his opinion) the top 50 streetwear brands of all time.  This was a pretty dope article as you think about all the different brands that you saw coming up in the last 10 to even 30 years.  Some of these brands are older than their current fans.  And as many success stories as there are, there are probably 100x more stories of failure.  It's sad to see everything you worked for go down the drain to be forgotten forever.  This list is a great reminder of how some of these brands got their start and how they had to persevere through some really rough eras.  Going through this list and recognizing some of the struggles each of these companies faced is inspiring.

    Growing up in the sneaker scene, I remember camping out in front of stores to cop the latest limited edition shoes.  One of the more limited edition sneakers I bought were the Nike Denim Dunks.  Those shoes were definitely one of my favorites.  Now the game has changed and I'm getting too old to sit outside a sneaker store for 8+ hours trying to get the latest and greatest.  Ok, enough of my reminiscing and let's just get to the pics (courtesy of Complex.com)

    Here's THE LIST.  BTW, great article Bobby!

    So here are a few of the brands that made a difference in my life:
