We Out Here
We saw a movement - a growing group of young urban skaters with their own style, look and attitude that were challenging the geographic and social paradigms that have long been associated with skate. These kids were making shit happen, independently. Airwalk wanted to acknowledge the attitude, and pay homage to the movement. Already Famous was born.
An extension of the Airwalk brand story, Already Famous is a celebration of urban skate. It’s a state of mind. It’s a state of being. #weouthere
Our collection of Already Famous videos. Sick parties, famous individuals, skate and other stuff. #weouthere

Skating is waking up and being able to meet with the homies, sesh and have a good time. It’s also progressing at your own pace because everybody skates differently.
To me, Already Famous means #weouthere and we're still going to be here long after our skate career is gone.
CREW: Wade Yates
Name: Wade Yates
Hometown: Brownsville, Brooklyn , NY
Founder and Co-owner of Trophy Grip. Started skating at 17. "When I was about 7 I always said I wanted to travel the world. Who knew it would happen because of a piece of wood? Because of the DR trip I discovered that the best thing in life is to see new culture. Seeing how people live differently helps you appreciate what you have.”
Favorite Quote: Bad things happen to bad people. Good people are just put through challenges -Wade Yates
Favorite NYC Skate Spot: The entire city. There are always new spots being built, and its awesome cruising the streets and just feeling free.
Skating is an instrument used to create art.
Inspirations: The Og's from the NYC skate scene.
"To me Already Famous is constant reminder of how far I’ve come as a skater and a person."
