One of the biggest components of the Yardbird brand is our global community, and we’re grateful to have developed a strong one that’s comprised of our friends, family, and mentors from around the world. Every aspect of our brand pays homage to Matt and Lindsay’s roots in hospitality as well as skate and street culture, including the team uniforms. Lindsay and Matt both grew up around skateboarding and met in a skate shop as teenagers. When they first opened Yardbird, it was their goal to create a space with the same sense of community, creativity, and design that skate culture is known for. And since day one, we’ve been lucky to be laced by our friends at Vans. Our food runners are especially grateful for the latest Vans UltraRange, using UltraCush Lite foam cushioning for style and comfort!
