Wallride presents: Our top 5 streetwear brands

Here at Wallride we have an ever-expanding range of streetwear – from new brands to classics.

Born out of the LA surf culture in the late 1970s, streetwear has gone on to become an unstoppable force in fashion globally.

Wallride stocks many of the hottest selling British street brands as well as renowned labels from the USA. 

Here's a little bit about them...


One of the original artist collaboration brands

Founded it 1999, this London-based company makes some of the most popular street clothing in the UK right now. Much of the reason for this lies in the fact that the logos and graphics are designed by specially selected British artists and illustrators.

Black Scale

Black Scale (known as, BLVCK SCVLE) is a streetwear clothing brand that was founded by Michael ‘MEGA’ Yabut and Alfred De Tagle, in 2007.

They are very popular in the UK as well as in America and the Far East.

Their stated goal is to “Evoke emotions and to create topics of discussion through our designs and to encourage the consumer to leave no stone unturned when searching for one’s own truth. This truth is represented and boldly stated at the hand of fashion.”

King Apparel

Another hot selling British brand. It was conceived and started back in 2003 in the East End of London.

Their aim was to create a British streetwear brand that could stand with the best the United States had to offer.

They had the seeds of a vision, as well as strong backgrounds in music, board sports and design, but lacked financial backing. It was with the help of The Prince’s Trust charity that we were finally able to make the brand a reality.


Mishka is a streetwear company and record label based in New York City. It was established in 2003 and featured bright colours and grotesque but playful cartoon imagery.

Mishka NYC’s most notable design is the "Keep Watch" eyeball and the "Bearmop" logo, a cartoon bear.

Crooks & Castles

Crooks & Castles launched in 2002 and remains one of the most relevant names in streetwear today. Founders Robert Panlilio and Dennis Calvero grew up in L.A. during the 80s, and based their brand’s name on the city’s lifestyle. “Crooks” represents the criminals, hustlers, pimps, thieves and other hoodlums, while “Castles” refer to those who got filthy rich by becoming a crook.
