Skaters get respect—and great clothes—at this South End retailer. The owners are skateboarders who have a passion for all things skate-related. The shop is stocked with a huge selection of hard-to-find shoes and skate apparel as well as the largest selection of boards in the area, with more than 300 decks in stock.
There is more to the shop than just Vans, Supra, and Akomplice. It’s also a place that promotes the skater culture, supporting and giving back to the local skate scene. There is an official Black Sheep skate team that represents the store at area skateboarding events.
The store also hosts art shows and events to showcase the work of local skate-inspired artists.
