Evol was a deck company started by Tony Magnusson and Niko Achtipes in 1993 after leaving H-Street behind. Evol grew to include skateboards, clothing, snowboards, outerwear, boots, and in '95 introduced a Evol Casuals line of footwear. Footwear quickly became Evol's most profitable category but had a hard time getting non Evol riders due to conflict with other deck & clothing sponsors. So in 1996, the shoe division was re-branded as Osiris Footwear with the original team of Adam McNatt, Gershon Mosley, Tyrone Olson and Dave Mayhew. Evol Skateboards continued a while longer but eventually folded in 1998.
