Last season saw us introduce Levi’s Skateboarding to the Wellgosh Famillia. Unfortunately it arrived at the beginning of November, just as the UK got locked down for the second time. Talk about a tough start in life?!
We’ve been long time admirers of all things Levi’s; early adopters of Levi’s Vintage, a time when heavyweight selvedge denim was all the rage & you rated your denim on how rarely you could get away with washing your jeans. We also stocked Levi’s Skateboarding’s predecessor; Levi’s Commuter, a range developed to tackle the strains put on the leg wear of a would-be-tour-de-Leicester cyclist. So when the opportunity to get involved in Levi’s Skate range came about we didn’t need much convincing. With good heritage in the world of skateboarding, (our big boss Pete was instrumental in the opening of Leicester’s best ever skate shop ‘Casino’ many moons ago) & aligning ourselves with brands such as Fucking Awesome, Nike SB, & soon to arrive POP Trading, a skate range by a brand that has been so influential to so many subcultures was a no brainer.
Levi’s Skateboarding comprises of a nice mix of classic Levi’s cuts (namely the 511 & the iconic 501) & contemporary skate staples like heavy-duty work pants & hardwearing over shirts. Check out our full range of Levi’s here.
