In 2004, professional skateboarder Jamie Thomas founded Fallen Footwear. When asked why he decided to start the company, Jamie Thomas responded "I wanted the company and the riders to inspire kids and be like a movement of unlikely people coming up. Fallen just seemed to be the perfect name for that mission. It seemed kind of negative at first, so we made sure 'Rise with the Fallen' was on everything we made."
With a lower profile and classic old school skate shoe sole design, the Chief by Fallen has been hailed by many a chief as being worthy of any skater looking for a stylish shoe. The Chief's sticky gum rubber sole provides its user with greater board feel and connectivity. Features of the Fallen Chief Shoe include Foam-padded tongue and collar for comfort and support, Internal tongue straps for added foot stability, Vulcanized sole construction, Highly abrasion-resistant multi-tone bottom, and a Sticky gum rubber sole for excellent boardfeel, wear, and flex. Designed and endorsed by Jamie Thomas.
