Official Press Release Below:
“For 40 years, the simple canvas oxford has been a skate and style staple. The Kent breathes new life into a classic American design, an iconic shoe originally worn by the likes of Tony Alva and Stacey Peralta 40 years ago.
Think of the Kent as Dogtown evolved: the perfect balance of Southern California ingenuity and European craftsmanship. Fit, naturally, for the opinionated streets of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and beyond.
The shoe begins life in Civitanova, Italy (known in the trade as “shoe valley”), when handsome Margom soles are mated with luxurious leather uppers lined with canvas. Sound familiar? It should. Every fashion house offers footwear with the same pedigree. Only Greats connects adequately with skate legends.
Longboards, though, are strictly forbidden.”
