TONY MAG PROTOCOL SHOE
Osiris Shoes and H-Street Skateboard have joined forces with over a half a century of combined innovation and experience to bring you the ultimate skate shoe.
This collaborative effort takes the iconic Osiris Protocol and wraps it in our formulated “secret sauce” premium suede for maximum performance and unmatched durability.
Understanding the demands of today skaters we developed the “CTRL Impact System” which features our innovative insole and lasting technology to maximize the overall comfort, fit, support and impact resistance you come to expect with performance footwear.
This collection of skate shoes is essentially based on the custom made shoes Tony Mag’s been rocking for years, with a variety of quality and durability upgrades, including the very stylish waxed laces, which do last longer than regular laces and insoles, which have some “grip” to them and the extra set of custom CTRL Impact insole, which is printed with T-Mag’s legendary artwork.
The Kid’n’Cross was one T-Mag’s main graphics from the 80’s, drawn by legendary H-Street artist Francesco Jekill Albertini and the Magzilla was drawn by H-Street’s Imagery Intelligence Specialist Fian Arroyo and is T-Mag’s current graphic in 2017.
Tony Mag started skateboarding in Stockholm, Sweden when skateboarding swept the country in 1976. After spending a few years at the top of the Swedish skateboard scene, T-Mag won the National Championship and toured the nation. The young Tony Mag decided to pursue his life dream of becoming the best skateboarder in the world and jumped on a plane to California at age 16 in 1980.
Tony became a “park local” skateboarder at the legendary Del Mar Skate Ranch, which bred such skateboarding talents as Tony Hawk, Billy Ruff, Peter Hewitt and many more. T-Mag decided to learn how to make skateboards and immersed himself in the business of designing, manufacturing, marketing and selling them.
While the beginning was humble, over a 20 year time span, Tony Mag traveled world as a professional skateboarder, started several companies, including H-Street Skateboards and Osiris Shoes.
Tony still skates actively and has won numerous world championship titles, both as Pro skater in the 80’s and as a legendary skater in recent years.
H-Street was founded circa 1986, by professional skateboarder Tony Mag and bro Mike Ternasky. The two teamed up with pro skateboarder Dave Andrecht to form the first skateboard company that was run by skateboarders.
T-Mag’s basic idea was that skateboard companies should be run by skateboarders and not guys in suits that didn’t ride, and that skateboarding should be a source of free and individual expression. The fact most towns in America have an actual H-Street somewhere, made it into an every town idea. H-Street is inclusive, not exclusive.Osiris Shoes was formed in the early 90’s by a group of friends, including Tony Mag, who thought it was a good idea for skaters to design skate shoes. Osiris has been a leading and innovative brand with such notables as the first shoe company to release a full length video with “The Storm” in 2000 and design hits like the D3 and D3 2001, followed by leading the industry in prints on shoes with an artist known as OG Abel. In 2007, Brian Reid designed the NYC83, an 80’s throwback high top that reached new heights for Osiris. While design and innovation is always paramount at Osiris, quality skate shoes is always a priority for both Brian Reid and Tony Mag, who still design the shoes and still skate.
