Overview

 

Walker Wear is an authentic lifestyle brand that bridges the gap between Generation X and Y through fashion and is a trailblazer of the global urban/streetwear movement. Our influences extend from our Brooklyn based backdrop all the way to Japan with a focus on durability, quality, and creating timeless classics.

“New Yiddy in the room and they saw it from the deck, half a pound watches Walker Wear sweats. Logo of the city, double down on that line, in the top by default, I don’t count past 5.”

“April Walker is truly an urban pioneer.”

–WWD

“Designer April Walker is urban fashion’s first leading lady. One of a handful of trailblazers to bring the flavor of the streets to Middle America in the late 80s/early 90s, Walker helped create the specifications synonymous with urban design. Walker was the brand to rock if you were part of the hip-hop generation.”

“April Walker is and will forever be the First Lady of Urban Fashion. Through Walker Wear and other ventures April has proven over the years to not only have a keen sense of fashion but also the highest level of business savvy.”
