Rob, Big, and Rob’s New Shades

Rob & Big‘s success is infiltrating all corners of the skate world. Alien is making Meaty decks, DC has Rob & Big T-shirts, and now Rob’s sunglass sponsor, Spy Optic, is releasing a new model for him. Check the press release below.


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Carlsbad, California – February 10th, 2007 – Spy Optic announces the debut of Rob Dyrdek’s newest signature piece, the Haymaker. Hot on the heels of the phenomenally successful first season of “Rob & Big,” the custom-designed piece will hit shelves in April. Designed with flavors of hip hop and street cred, the Haymaker is the culmination of Dyrdek’s distinct aesthetics and Spy’s superior construction and materials. This is Rob’s second signature sunglass during his five-plus years of skating for Spy Optic.

Rob and Chris “Big Black” Boykin are the stars of their own hit MTV reality show “Rob & Big,” which has officially been green-lit for a second season and begins filming this month. The show was viewed by a combined total of almost 100 million viewers between airings on MTV and MTV2, and earned MTV2 its highest rated day in channel history.

Rob Dyrdek has been a Spy athlete since 2002, and is joined by skate team members Danny Way and Devine Calloway.
