Quartersnacks

Nostalgic for the pre-Internet era, Quartersnacks began as a way for new skaters to meet one another and discover new spots to skate in and around New York City. A high school student at the time, Konstantin Satchek launched the brand in 2005 with a group of friends.

Quartersnacks are also well known for their strong online presence, even though the brand is all for the time before the internet, the original crew utilised the early days of the web as a way to connect with other skaters, report updates on spots, share their opinion on the industry and happenings around New York City. The website is still going strong today with the same running theme. The earlier days of the brand matched a time when sites like Youtube were emerging, which became a way for Quartersnacks to share short videos. Celebrating their 10th birthday in 2015, a 208 page book was released entitled ‘T.F at 1:

Ten Years of Quartersnacks’ which includes a large collection of photographs, essays and hand drawn maps of different skate spots, reminiscent of times spent at now shut off or developed skate spots.

Named after a time where founder Konstantin Satchek could only afford quarter priced snacks from small city bodegas, the brand has come a way since then collaborating with the likes of Nike SB for some custom footwear, alongside seasonal releases of apparel and accessories. Custom graphics often reference the brands heritage, an ode to city spots that have become unstable are listed on the Quartersnacks Spot T-Shirt. A brand mascot is Snackman, a patterned snowman that wears a gold chain and smokes a cigarette. The rich memories held by the brand resonates with skaters young and old, who respect the brand’s success alongside their archive that showcases the ever changing face of the global skate scene.
