We reached out to Greg Brown and asked if we could make a t-shirt in tribute to a Bay Area footwear legend. Before there was the sneaker game, there were the Brown Brothers and their amazing little shoe store in Alameda & Oakland. Actually they once had shops all over the midwest! Established in 1881. Reach here.
A portion of the proceeds will go to support the Alameda Boys & Girls Club.
One of the first t-shirts "Mr Castro" ever printed was in 2003 when he was a teacher and faculty advisor for the Black Student Union at Alameda High School.
This shirt really set things in motion for the shop and the team we have today at Brand Marinade.
Over the years, several former students asked if he could re-print this shirt. And, well, here it is!
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the AHS BSU.
