Since there are not many BMX related shoe company around, I would like to share with your guys this not really a new brand, but it seems not really popular here in Malaysia. Almond Footwear.
Put aside the quality matters, I’ve been attracted by the brand image and the shoe design. even the team riders for this company is not as big as Garret, Enarson or Guettler, but all the riders have their own attitude and style of riding that really impress me.
Here some info about Almond Footwear.

dedicated to producing quality footwear and encompassing passionate
forward thinking design.
We pride ourselves on our exceptional attention to detail, and a
unique process we bring to each and every one of our models. Our

Loheac and three of his friends pulled out PULL-IN. With little cash
in hand, but huge talent they brought forth unique underwear that
today many celebrities favor. Pull-in turnover is 12 million EUR in 2009 with 15 concept stores in , Spain (Ibiza) and US (NYC and LA), over 30 corners at department stores and about 1.500 retail partners worldwide.
is pretty, but is it comfortable? I threw it on with
doubtfulness…the final result? I’m now a PULL-IN devotee! The
fabric is extremely comfy. It felt like second skin. We are not only
receiving artistry in our undies, but quality also. That is RARE.
the distributor for Pull-In is in Singapore. They started it since
May/June 2010 and now the brand is slowly acceptable by the
consumers. Currently there still no distributor for Pull-In in
Malaysia but i believe there will be one soon.
