18 Best Skate Clothing Brands For Rocking The Free World

If you’re looking to update your skate wardrobe, check out this selection of skateboard brands making the best skateboard apparel, decks and footwear.

Skateboarding, originally known as ‘street surfing’, was first invented roughly in the late 1940s to early 1950s in California, by surfers wanting something to do when the swell was completely flat. Fast forward to 2023, skateboarding has become so popular that it made its Olympic debut at the 2020 (2021) Toyko Olympic Games.

Skateboarding has also carved out its own place in the fashion world, as well as the sporting world. The skateboarding street style, which hasn’t really changed since its conception in the 1970s, of oversized tees, backwards caps, hoodies, and relaxed fit jeans embodies the carefree psyche of skateboarders and gives off an understated aesthetic that many top designers have replicated repeatedly over the years.

But there are some brands that do skate clothing better than others; the best skateboard brands are founded by skateboarders, and strive to make clothing that’ll allow free movement to kickflip, grind, and carve hard at the skate park; but that’ll also personify the happy-go-lucky skater attitude.
