Project Description: Long before Jason “Wee Man” Acuna was known for his antics with the Jackass crew, he was [and still is] a passionate skate rat whose noticeable talent forged his beginnings as a professional skateboarder and a DVS ambassador for over 10 years. Inspired by his 1962 Impala, this collaborative shoe is full of details that Wee Man personally selected for style and functionality. When Big Brother magazine came on the scene in 1992, it forever changed the idea of what skateboard mags should feature. Head Photo Editor Rick Kosick was behind the lens of much of the photography that littered the pages of that bawdy magazine, so Wee Man suggested that Kosick produced the commercial for his new signature colorway shoe, and we knew he was the perfect candidate for the project. Special thanks to Rick Kosick, Jason Acuna, Dave England, Preston Lacy, Daewon Song, Torey Pudwill, Ricky Melnik, and the City of Long Beach.
