Skateboard star Brandon is a ‘shoe-in’ with footwear giant to land massive sponsorship deal
A skateboarder’s fancy footwork caught the eye of a major shoe manufacturer and landed him a massive sponsorship deal, 10 years ago.
Brandon Ide, pictured, from Bonhill, had been skating for just five years but was already making a name for himself on the Scottish circuit.
A friend suggested he send off a video of his skills to footwear giant Osiris shoes.
And the firm was so impressed with 20-yearold Brandon’s talent that they immediately agreed to sponsor him.
Brandon said: “Osiris are providing me with two pairs of shoes every month as well as t-shirts, hats and stickers.
“The team will tour Britain and it’s a good opportunity for me to get around a bit.
“I just sent off the video really to see what would happen and it worked first time.”
