□ Description
insane is a pioneering UK skate brand and one of the leading street brands of the 1990s. The brand started when Ged Wells, a skater himself, produced surreal artwork on T-shirts, which were featured in the legendary British skateboarding magazine ‘R.a.D’ and attracted a lot of attention. The brand was later licensed to the much respected ‘SlamCitySkates’. In the UK, where there were no prominent domestic skate brands at the time, the brand’s fresh graphics, which were unlike those offered by the American brands, were well received and quickly became popular on the streets through skaters. In the 1990s the brand was introduced in Japan through various fashion magazines at the time, but was difficult to obtain, and its popularity became a cult and still attracts a lot of followers.

「insane/インセイン」はUKスケーターブランドの草分け的存在かつ90年代を代表するストリートブランド。自身もスケーターであるジェド・ウェルズが自ら描くシュールなアートワークをTシャツにしたことからスタートし、伝説的なスケボー専門誌「RaD magazine」に取り上げられ注目を集める。後にUKスケーターらが絶大なる信頼を寄せる『SlamCitySkates』と契約。当時目立ったスケーターブランドが無いイギリスで、アメリカ産ブランドにはない新鮮なグラフィックが評判となり、スケーターを通して瞬く間にストリートで人気に火が付く。日本では当時、各ファッション誌で紹介されるも入手困難なこともあり、その人気はカルト化、今もなお多くの支持を集めている。
