The 50 Greatest Streetwear Brands

6. Alife

6. Alife
Although the face of Alife has changed since 1999, I've put them at the top of this list for what they accomplished from the get-go. Most everyone today recognizes the Alife name for their ubiquitous footwear line, but I still think of their original New York base on Orchard Street, a creative clubhouse for innovative design and forward-thinking product by originators Tony Arcabascio, Rob Cristofaro, Arnaud Delecolle, and Tammy Brainard. Alife the brand epitomized limited-edition streetwear with high price-point offerings, and set the benchmark for co-branded projects with upper tier partners like Levis and Reebok. #6 Streetwear brand, #1 Lifestyle brand.
