Amid Nike SB's dominating presence in the skateboarding industry, skate legend Jim Greco is valiantly stepping into the arena with his latest venture – Hammers Footwear.
Despite the fact that Nike SB reported a $5.4 billion in revenue for the quarter, marking a formidable 6% increase from the previous year, Greco is taking a calculated risk to challenge the corporate giant and carve out his niche in the skate shoe market.
The swoosh corporation has long been a powerhouse in skateboarding footwear, with its innovative designs, top-notch technology, and sponsoring top-seeded professional skateboarders.
The recent financial report, showcasing a staggering billion in revenue, only bolstered the brand's stronghold.
However, in the face of such dominance, Greco sees an opportunity to introduce something new and unique to the skateboarding community.
The former Piss Drunx triple OG is no stranger to taking risks. With Hammers Footwear, he aims to offer core skateboarders an alternative that goes beyond the established norms.
Greco envisions a brand that resonates with the anti-establishment values of the street skateboarding scene – individuality, creativity, and authenticity. Hammers Footwear is not just about shoes; it's about a lifestyle and a movement.
