History of Airwalk Brock

Airwalk is the brainchild of Bill Mann and George Yohn. Founded in 1986, Yohn and Mann wanted to create durable and functional skate shoes even without skateboarding experience themselves. Because there were very few options for skateboarding shoes then, the company had successfully entered the European market and made hundreds of millions each year.

Their shoes have become a staple for skateboarders. The early 90s saw the decline of Airwalk’s vert skating shoes’ popularity partly due to the change in the sport’s culture. This led to the launch of street skating shoes, such as the Jim Shoe and Solo 2.

They also sought to expand their market to become a brand that is relevant to the youth no matter what their hobbies and interests are. Nowadays, Airwalk is reviving their skateboard shoe line. Their recent releases include the Airwalk Brock men’s skate shoes. With its padded tongue and Airwalk branding, it is a cool and modern addition to the list of skateboarding shoes under the company’s belt.
