Collaborator Spotlight: Steve Alba

This week MERGE4 has the honor of spotlighting one of our many amazing collaborators, Steve Alba. Salba is a Skateboarding Hall of Fame inductee and a pioneering pool and fullpipe skater.

In the 1970’s and 80’s he created a vertical path that generations of skaters have followed ever since. Salba lives happily at the intersection of skateboarding, punk rock and art. HIs widely famed stencil and sketch art are featured on two different MERGE4 designs.

Salba’s brand new style, Salba Pool Rules, was just released and ready to help you skate easy.

These cool socks feature a non-medical graduated compression, ‘stay-put’ cuffs, elastic arch supports, a fortune cookie quote on the inside cuffs, and MERGE4’s ‘cult weave’ to keep the graphics from blowing out when being worn or stretched. Click the button below to shop Salba’s collection:
