Fallen Footwear has given team rider Elliot Sloan his first-ever pro model! The megaramp maestro is famously tough on his shoes: every trick he does seems to have fallen from the sky; the impact is killer. Sloan announced the release with a post on his Instagram: “Thank you everyone at Fallen for bein’ so freakin’ sick and believing in me.” Check out his announcement video, filmed at Bob Burnquist’s Dreamland compound, above.
Fallen relaunched in 2019, bringing back several riders who were on the original team in the Ride The Sky era. (It’s important to note that original head honcho Jamie Thomas is not involved with the reboot, as he made abundantly clear when he got his Fallen tattoo removed last year.) OG team rider Chris Cole’s return, in particular, was like a bulletproof seal of approval. We interviewed him and everyone involved in Fallen’s relaunch back in 2019, and he shared a bunch of interesting tidbits about the early days—he used to drive his car over a new pair of Fallens to break them in—making it clear that the brand has held a special place in its riders’ hearts after all this time.
