As we told you yesterday, The Agenda Trade Show kicked off today at the Long Beach Convention Center close to home here in the OC so we headed up to check out the action. I can’t believe there was over 600 brands showcasing there! Shouts out to the Agenda planning committee for getting that much great gear in one room and still making it easy to navigate and walk around. Speaking of the brands, what an interesting, but very welcome mix of booths from fresh out the gate to longtime stalwarts, clothing, accessories, kicks, and everything in between. We hit the floor and checked out the impressive new crop of gear from brands like Rebel8, Radii, ROOK, and New Era, as well as newcomers like THFKDLF, Marley, and Cult. Check out some of our shots from the show below and check out more in-depth coverage tomorrow.
