Ricky Oyola #8.
Letter to Memphis.
Memphis was a short lived shoe brand from the early 2000s. The name came up on the Slap boards a while ago and I filed it away as something to look for. Granted I didn't look very hard and stumbled upon the ad as I was looking for other stuff. I think Ricky was the only team rider. Thrasher had a pair of the shoes as a prize for a monthly contest. I suppose they look good enough for the well padded cupsoles that were popular around this time. I wonder if the Velocity name was a tip of the hat to Airwalk or a mere coincidence?
