As much as Vlado Footwear is known for footwear, the new apparel that they have is called Do It In Vlado, LEO, Vlado Leo, Vlado, and Showdown LA 3!!! I find that the Phalanx in the female collection far better than the Phalanx in the male’s collection………..no hard feeling guys!!

The Jerkin Movement started in the streets of Los Angeles,
California in 2009; from there the jerkin movement has grown to new heights
like being part of Vlado Footwear's line of shoes called Spectros, having a
dance competition called Showdown L.A. with special celebrities coming out like
Lil' Mama, a judge from ABDC; American Best Dance Crew. The movement is gaining
fans internationally (YES ALL AROUND THE WORLD!!!) and there is also a movie
filmed by Shariff Hasan.
The Jerkin Movement has many trends like skate apparel, novelty graphic tees and bright colors, besides the gangster look of having baggy pants. In 2010, Vlado Footwear created the official jerkin shoe, "Spectro"(or known in the jerkin movement as Vlados) that would replace Vans & Converse because of the footwork that the dancers would do. Spectros are sold at the official Vlado Footwear store, Finish Line, Journeys, Step Japan, Underground Station, and other stores that sell footwear.
In 2011, Showdown L.A. II was in downtown L.A., and the
winners of the dance battle were Marvel Inc. They even received a golden trophy
and a new pair golden Spectros.........sweet isn't it?
Recently, Vlado Footwear has released a female's collection that is only sold at Finish Line and the official Vlado Footwear store. But most of all, the jerkin movement is doing a lot of positive thing like bring more of the youth off of drugs, unprotected sex, and gangs!!!!
There are Vlado Footwear stores located all around the globe from Europe, France, Russian, and Korea!!!
