SECRET: BANNED is like a local bar, but without liquor

Banned Skate Shop was founded at a time when the rave scene was big, and so were the pants. Our first website and online store also went on air in 1993. For those who are too young to know what this means is: People did not know what web sites were for yet. There were NO emails. “what is a web site?”, or “what is it for? “ was a common question. Well that explains the rarity of having a one word domain BANNED.COM, it was acquired very early.
