DGK founder Stevie Williams is the American dream. Coming from meager beginnings in the ghetto of Philadelphia, at 11 years of age Stevie was introduced to a skateboard and his passion took over. An unimaginable journey began that day, with this kid from Philly inspiring a global movement. His impact spread like wildfire, cementing his legacy in the history books as one of the most influential skateboarders of all time by Transworld Skateboarding. The culmination of his rise was founding DGK, a brand honoring his childhood friends and encouraging kids from the same circumstance to stay on a positive path. The brands authenticity quickly elevated it one of the biggest companies in skateboarding and spread into the pop culture lexicon, being worn from everyone from Lebron James, The Kardashians to Justin Bieber. After 20 years, the brand is more dominant than ever and still standing for the same fundamentals it was founded on.
