The Airwalk brand was founded in 1986 by Bill Mann and George Yohn. Neither were skateboarders, but both spent their time watching skaters in parks to see how skaters used and damaged their shoes. During that time, the skateboarding market was largely untapped, and both realized the potential. Based on their observation, they were able to design shoes that were more durable and functional than what was currently being sold.
Their first few designs were typical of the 80s—bright colors and wild patterns in high-cut profiles. It was the era of vert skating, and the Airwalk team consisted of stars like Tony Magnusson, Tony Hawk, and Mike McGill. When the 90s shifted to street skating, Airwalk shifted with the times as well by releasing simpler and more understated shoes.
Today, the Airwalk shoes are geared more towards the mainstream and lifestyle market rather than the skateboarding community although their shoes still carry an undeniable skateboarding DNA.
