In our ‘LOCKDOWN LEISURES’ series we would like you to meet our team and our family. A few notes around the people behind and around our stores and community. What are they doing at the moment?
Meet our boss Lina (@Lina_Avenue) who has been running Lockwood & Avenue for the past 23 years. Lina is from Sweden and has lived there in the first part of her life until she met Lockwood founder and skater Sven. Soon after they met on a surfing holiday Lina moved to Belgium.
She currently is the mother of three, if you don’t count in our staff tho. Besides running her fam and the stores she keeps a clear mind with yoga, meditation and reading books to improve her spiritual state.
If you love the 80’s just like she does, you will love her nostalgic Lockdown Leisures.

Vegan curry: Hot, spicy, creamy and warms you up from the inside and out. Just like this one: https://www.lazycatkitchen.com/vegan-thai-green-curry/
All Time Favourite Sneaker:
The Nike Air Max 97 'cause it’s nostalgic, you can wear the Silver Bullets with everything.
A sneaker that I would love to ad to my collection: Nike SB Dunk Hi Huf, I’m a sucker for tie-dye. Wearing a size us 6 made it very difficult to get the sneakers that I loved back in the day. Smallest size used to be US 7, and sometimes even an 8.
