Look, vintage kicks at the Airwalk 25th anniversary party.
Airwalk celebrated 25 years of being in biz last Thursday. Here’s AW’s quick word-and-pic recap of the rager that took place. Skating icon Mike Vallely and surfer Anastasia Ashley were among the throng.
Fans and friends of Airwalk gathered at The Colony in the heart of Hollywood, to toast the brand’s 25th anniversary. Fans sipped bottles of PBR while they checked out a visual history of Airwalk, ranging from story boards denoting memorable moments over the past quarter-century to a curated selection of notable historic styles including The Minus, The Freeride Boot and The VIC.
DJ Mike Danger provided the sounds for the first half of the evening, spinning a mix of old-school hip-hop favorites. Xaphoon Jones (one half of buzzed-about hip-hop duo Chiddy Bang) hopped in the DJ booth after. The night rounded out with a lively performance from Chiddy Bang, who used the whole venue as his stage!
At the end of the night, fans went home with a custom 25th anniversary edition drawstring backpack, Airwalk flip-flops to match, PBR swag and as a late-night snack, some Red Vines licorice! The night was a huge in success in paying homage to Airwalk’s past 25 years, and the innovations the brand has made in action sports.
