Live from the FTC x Nike SB Finally Release Party

Email

We're out here in SF getting ready to cover the FTC x Nike SB release party. Things are underway for the event tonight, if you're out in the Bay Area come stop by at the Minna Nightclub in SF.

111 Minna Gallery - Financial District - San Francisco, CA


If your just catching up, this is release is conjunction with SF's own FTC's upcoming 20 year anniversary of their iconic Finally video featuring the graphics designed by Del the Funky Homosapien.
 
"Finally...an FTC Video" was originally released in San Francisco in 1993 and directed by Aaron Meza. Finally featured full parts from FTC team riders Jeron Wilson, Scott Johnston, Chico Brenes, Mike Carroll and team montages including Keith Hufnagel, Karl Watson, Jovontae Turner, Mike York and Guy Mariano. This was a ground breaking video for the time and really paved the way for FTC and skateboarding in San Francisco. The original cover art of FTC's "Finally" video was done by an emerging young rapper at the time named Del The Funky Homosapien of Hieroglyphics, and serves as the inspiration for the shoe's color and design.

FTC is also producing a special limited Finally deck, t shirt, and re-releasing Finally on dvd too. In celebration of the release of the Nike/FTC "Finally" Dunk Low.

Keep posted here as the night unfolds.
