Airwalk Stitch Slip-On History
The company was founded in 1986 by a designer named George Yohn and a former art student Bill Mann. Airwalk is mostly known for its skater sneakers. Both founders are not skaters themselves, but they saw the market potential. By being familiar with the origins of how the skaters damaged their shoes, the company knew how to market their shoes. During its initial years, the company had it easy as skaters have limited brand options.
By the 90s, Airwalk was one of the top sneaker brands in North America and Europe. Another company, Vans was slowly making its mark on the skater market, and for a time, Airwalk and Vans competed for skater brand dominance.
The skateboarding’s popularity was steadily decreasing before the end of the 90s, due to its association with crimes and even loitering. Eventually, the company entered the casual footwear market, but it was not as successful as Airwalk wanted it to be.
Today, the company’s products are distributed by Payless discount stores. One of its casual shoes is the Airwalk Stitch Slip-On, which displays a basic design that works best as an everyday shoe.
