Fallen shoes signed by Jamie Thomas, Josh Harmony, and Billy Marks
In 2003, it was announced that Fallen Footwear would be manufactured and distributed by DC Shoes under license from Thomas. The agreement was canceled in 2005 after DC was acquired by Quiksilver. It was an amicable separation, and DC President Ken Block said that Fallen was "recognized as the top new emerging footwear brand in the skateboard industry." The shoes were sold and distributed through Thomas' Black Box Distribution.
Fallen was known for their shoes, hoodies, T-shirts, snapbacks, book bags, jeans/shorts, and skateboarding videos. The more popular shoes are, "The Clipper", "The Patriot", "The Rival" ,"Trooper" and the "Forte". At its peak, Fallen had 17 models in over 50 colors.
In 2008, Fallen released a skate video titled "Ride the Sky". The video features Billy Marks, Brian Hansen, Chris Cole, Gilbert Crockett, James Hardy, Jamie Thomas, Josh Harmony, Matt Bennett, Tommy Sandoval, and Tony Cervantes.
Fallen began a documentary, "Roads Less Traveled".
As of January 2015, the Fallen pro riders were Jamie Thomas, Tommy Sandoval, Brian "Slash" Hansen, Dane Burman, Jon Dickson and Tony Cervantes.
In 2011, longtime rider Chris Cole left Fallen to skate for DC Shoes
