Emerging from the gritty, smoke filled New York back alleys, 5Boro was founded in 1996 by Steve Rodriguez. With a lengthy history spanning 20 years, 5Boro adopted it’s name from the from the five boroughs of New York and has stood the test of time. Although characterised by the raw street skating of rough New York terrain, the brand manages to maintain a clean aesthetic through its graphic output and clothing range. With a highly identifiable image on both their boards and apparel, Rodriguez operates the brand with friend and fellow NYC skateboarder, Mark Nardelli and it continues to grow into one of the best brands coming out of the east coast.
