City: San Francisco
Address: 1632 Haight St.
Starting in 1986 and opening its first store in San Francisco in 1994, FTC is a real skate shop through and through. Its name hasn't caught as much fame during the Complex Decade like Supreme or HUF, but that's why real skaters still think FTC is that spot. There are now stores in Sactown, Barcelona, and Tokyo, but FTC SF is still homebase to the brand's understated cool.
