Zoo York came about in the early 70's, it's name derived from a subway tunnel running underneath the Central Park Zoo in New York. The tunnel was a favourite haunt of many graffiti writers/artists. This unique underground influence and it's creative culture generated wide spark interests and appealed to many who wanted something different from the contemporary. By the 80's, Zoo York was synonymous with skateboards, graffiti, punk, hip hop, b-boys and many other undergound act imaginable.
Zoo York has evolved into a recognised brand worldwide today with apparels and footwear designs developed from the same creative outlet and are now exclusively available in Malaysia at Star 360 -Sunway Pyramid, Ecko Unlimited- 1 Utama and Tangs - Pavillion.
