The Already Famous Airwalk crew invaded the Battle of the Bronx on Saturday. Our very own Carlo Carezzano took home the Sweetest Trick award and $200 in cash! Check out his winning tail slide front side flip out on the rail.
January 15 marked the release of our Airwalk Already Famous ONE Lava Red, and it’s gained quite a bit of attention from sneakerheads and media alike. These kicks feature a streetwear-style makeover with a rich Lava-Red leather/suede combo upper. The shoes have patent detail and a rubber cupsole bottom. The five embroidered stars on the heel represent the boroughs of New York City, the birthplace of Already Famous.
Harold Hunter Day VI is throwing down tomorrow in NYC, and we can hardly wait! Airwalk made the official Harold Hunter Day T-shirt for the big event. So for those of you who canâ€™t make it to the party, we are selling a limited number on

Earlier this week we released the latest video from our Already Famous campaign. This week’s highlighted ambassador is Wade Yates, NY skater and co-founder of Trophy Grip. Big ups to Wade for the video, and all the press it’s receiving!
Our Already Famous campaign continues shining light on some amazing NYC skaters. Check out this feature video on Rob Campbell. You might be familiar with him, as this 32 year old has been a pro since 2004. From being on the 1997 Supreme skate team, to running his two skate companies today, Rob Campbell is pretty much Already Famous. His blog is pretty rad too.
Our Already Famous campaign is well under way, and already grabbing some attention. We recently released a video highlighting one of our skate ambassadors, Cherry Puffin and it was quickly picked up by Complex. Cherryâ€™s video is the first of a series of profiles that weâ€™ll be releasing throughout the year. Follow Already Famous on twitter to get the latest from the campaign.

Until the late 1980s, skateboarding was primarily associated with Southern California. Thanks to the sportâ€™s growing popularity over the years, skate extended its reach beyond the West coast, eventually making its way across the country to New York City – a skate hot spot with its own style distinct from the “So Cal” scene. Despite its limited real estate and unreliable weather, NYC today is considered one of the most popular and skate-friendly cities in the world, home to more than 20 skate parks. There’s a new chapter unfolding on the NYC skate scene with a growing group of young urban skaters. These guys have their own style, look and attitude that are tearing up the city.
We wanted to shed some light on this story so we’ve teamed up with Brooklyn-based creative agency, Project Fathom, to produce a documentary film, titled Already Famous, and will be launching a summer-long celebration of the urban skate community in NYC.
