#EVERYBODYSKATES Review

 

#everybodyskates

 

 

Let me give you a little history here. In 1990, there was this person name “Alphonzo Rawls” that was born into the skateboard world by dropping some amazing video parts in H-Street, XYZ Clothing, Duffs, and Expedition. Then he went from there to design shoes for Kastel, DC, Vox and etc.  Now Alph, started doing funny things with images of famous people head and putting them on skater bodies doing tricks and then post them on the social sites. Alph scratch his head and was like, why I don’t do t-shirts and make them exclusive to skate shops only. Now, you can go to your local skate shop and pick up a tee with 2Pac doing a stalefish out of a bowl. Thats Dope!!!!!!!!! – T.Zam
