We had spent a long day together with Tommy up in SF and the night was winding down. We said we'd walk to a nearby pub so he jumped on his zip zinger, popped the curb-cut, crossed through the intersection and with a few pushes we saw what we thought was the last of TG. Full on French exit - no goodbyes. Nothing. He made all the lights and banked hard to the left in front of traffic. It was the full deal. None of us knew for sure if he'd be back or not. About 5 minutes or so pass and he cruises right back up to the group. Tommy says to us "Sick! Couldn't pass up bombing that." We all laughed and told him what we thought. "Ahh no man...I am not that guy" he said.

Anytime we sit down to design a shoe with someone like Tommy our goal is that when you pick it up you'd say to yourself "oh yeah, I could see him wearing this". Some of you might associate him exclusively with Adidas, but then you (like us) didn't know that he actually bought all of those himself because he just likes all black leather shoes and nobody makes them. Seriously, not even Vans ('til now). It's pretty weird, but true.
One of my favorite skate videos is The Forties (40's) video called "Amigos". About sixty seconds into it you'll get it. He's wearing Old Skools. Again, it's all right there and he scored the soundtrack too.
