No começo da semana Torey Pudwill anunciou pelas redes sociais que estava deixando a DVS Shoes, após dez anos na marca. Nessa tarde ele anunciou seu novo patrocinador de tênis: Diamond Footwear.
Protótipos da Diamond Footwear chegaram a ser produzidos pela DVS, lá por 2010, 2011, mas Nick Tershay focou mais em linhas fashion. Como a DVS não vem muito bem nos últimos anos e Pudwill tem uma relação próxima com Nick, os dois decidiram firmar essa parceria, já que a Grizzly, marca de Torey, não é mais distribuída pela Diamond.
O “The Torey”, primeiro pro-model de Torey Pudwill pela Diamond Footwear será lançado em fevereiro mas já está à venda na loja virtual da marca.
Outros nome da Diamond Footwear são Brandon Biebel e Nick Tucker. Com a realização da Agenda Tradeshow nessa semana, está aberta a temporada da dança das cadeiras 2016.
@diamondfootwear_ has been making high quality footwear with some of the best footwear factories in the world for the past 5 years. I've always liked the quality and details Diamond had that I didn't really see in other shoes. Last year they designed a few shoe samples that were made strictly for skateboarding and asked me to try out a pair. They were honestly the best shoes I've ever skated. With that being said, I would like to announce that I am officially on the Diamond Footwear Team. My new pro signature Diamond shoe, the Torey, is available NOW for PRE SALE at diamondsupplyco.com (link in bio) and the shoes will ship by Feb 15th to the first 500 people who buy a pair. I am proud to skate for and support a shoe company that is designed, owned and operated by skateboarders. Commercial directed by @thisguysthelimit. #DiamondFootwear
