This footwear company was launched by Angel Cabada, a dedicated skateboarder. He originally had a partner in a shoe line called TSA. He and his partner went their separate ways, so Angel started Supra which is a shoe brand for skateboarders by skateboarders. With his initial design launch of “Skytops”, a lot of people laughed at Angel but the laughter stopped when his shoes sales went off the charts. Today Supra has a full line of low tops, mid tops and high tops that sell well to skateboarders and to celebrities alike.

A German shoe company that has been in existence since 1924 formed by two brothers, Adolf and Rudolf Dassler. Puma’s main gig is that they manufacture Football (soccer) shoes and supply footwear for a number of famous soccer players. They also make suede basketball shoes and track and field shoes. Many famous athletes have worn these shoes and the shoes are also a choice for many people who enjoy an active lifestyle, no matter what sport they choose to partake in.
This shoe company started off as a small business owned by two brothers and two of their friends. When they opened their first store in 1966, they sold 12 pairs of shoes on their opening day. Since there was no actual stock in the store, the orders were taken directly to the manufacturer who built the shoes on site and supplied them to the store the next day. The customers returned to pick up their shoes and the rest is history. Initially, it was skateboarders who liked the Vans brand for their sticky soles and flexible tops, making it enjoyable and easy to ride a skateboard, but soon a lot of people discovered that these shoes are perfect for all kinds of activities, and low cost enough to purchase a pair for every occasion. Vans started off with a base model, but today there are hundreds of styles and patterns to choose from.
