We Legendary is the illest and one of the best skateboard shops in the Philippines which started as Specks clothing line in 2000. Their humble beginning as Specks begun as a "homie brand" that paved the way for a spectacular triumph as talented skateboarders in our country joined the movement - where professional skateboarders Monmon Chua, Ansey Flores, Raymund "Wong" Lorenzana, and others joined the fastest growing skate brand in the Philippines. The shop officially launched its headquarters with the 408 skate shop in 2007 where all emotional and physical efforts were directed towards passion and love for skateboarding.
We Legendary's website was released to the public less than a year after its major success in 2007 which resulted for the skate shop to expand multiple locations in Manila and Davao. Before its domination, they had collaborations from outstanding artists i.e., AMPON, SANDWICH, Grea (marquiss), DJ Red i and more.
The team intended to invigorate the skate scene to a much more productive phase than ever before. The clique provided skate contests like dUBPLATE event (SKATE, reggae, music), Pledge to the rail, Dirty Dozen I, II and a lot more which the kids enjoyed the spectacle of the exciting contests. The community was really small back then however, they managed to produce more local skate products for the scene.
The Day Old Urethane skateboard wheels were made in the USA - it was a brilliant idea. Even the logo itself made all skateboarders go with the bang in their heads - majority were backing up the product with arms wide open which made it sold out. Skate commercials on Youtube for the local wheels were all over the place as one of the greatest promotions in the local skate scene.
The brand had another local made "5thply" skateboard deck to entice other skateboarders to work hard and have fun at the same time. Some of the best riders in the Philippines went pro for 5thply skate deck. As a result, Agenda Davao followed We Legendary's footsteps to become one of the gnarliest skate brands in the country.
The most iconic collaboration they received was from Emerica on their 10th year anniversary designed by one of the most dopest Filipino graffiti artist Egg Fiasco. The top of the line skate shoe brand in the United States of America Sole Technology gave them the most insane blessing that anyone could ever imagine - not a single human being in the Philippines could ever have that miraculous opportunity which is beyond nectar. The Kamuning Posse skate shoe's insole design was inspired by the destination signs found on the Jeepney.
Today, We Legendary is still going hard in the paint as they are now dominating the skateboard online shop in the Philippines. You can now easily go to Lazada with cash on delivery, credit card payments and more payment options.
This is just the beginning of We Legendary and they are not going anywhere. When they were trying to start, they did not know where they were going - they had a crazy ride, had several hurdles and obstacles that they faced. Hence, they overcome all of it by being united and it's now 12 years strong. Running a business is a gamble and you have to dedicate your life if you really want to succeed however, it's all about working smart and not harder and that is We Legenday's recipe to success.
