First Signature Shoe Drops
At 15 Ryan became the youngest pro ever to receive a signature shoe. Not long before, he’d won three of five stops on the 2005 Dew Tour. He’d also dropped a part in Round 3, Almost’s first video. While the section wasn’t without park clips and the odd street grab, it contained more than enough footage from spots in Barcelona, Los Angeles and elsewhere to dispel the myth that he was a contest kid. Later, his MTV reality drama, Life of Ryan, debuted, but the less we say about that, the better.
