Tony Tony my bro, he started Alife in only God knows when 1999? And later Rivington Club. He and the Alife team have been a great inspiration for me when I started WoodWood and today Tony still is, he was one of the first to put the sneaker in a different context or forum and I believe somehow he started a wave before Nike and Adidas really was aware of this new market for sneakers, at least how I see it, Nike and Adidas pls send him a check as gratitude. Worldwide today we see a sneaker store on every corner or horrible gigantic websites, today a billion dollar industry.
Tony is a true New Yorker speaks like a mobster movie and is creative for life... see you soon my friend
