German Nieves is one of those guys you might recognize by name as an East Coast OG, you might remember from early Zoo York videos, and you might even know that he has one of “the most gangster pushes” in skateboard history – but you probably don’t know that he loves tennis. That’s right, this guy (along with Gino) loves the sport where no matter how good you get you’ll never be as good as a wall. Now that you know, it’s pretty easy to see the upper-crust influence in German’s new clothing brand, Paterson League, which looks in the best way possible like it was culled from the wardrobe of Roger Federer himself.
Anyways, German came through with a really good mix that he cut himself sometime between running his brand, building production sets, skating some and going out more.
