Favorite Skate Shoe
Gifted in more than just her prowess on a skateboard, Elissa Steamer’s presence changed skateboarding. With a stand out part in a video that put the skateboarding industry on notice, Elissa’s part in Welcome to Hell (1996) had a special weight to it, not only for being the first female to have a street part in a major video but also because she was integral in presenting skateboarding in an entirely new way to everyone.

"I didn’t want to make a shoe that was fuzzy with fruit on it...I didn’t want to make it corny, I just wanted people to wear it."
Before Wheels of Fortune 2019 kicked off in Seattle, the GIZMO crew hit up Bellevue Skate Plaza. Join Elissa, Lacey, Sarah and Leticia’s session.
