1. What happened to Derby Famous and do you have their files?
The Derby Famous name will live on as a term of endearment for our best known skaters in the sport. In February 2018, Apex City Armbands was handed the Derby Famous armband torch. We have been trained by the former owners of Derby Famous and are in possession of all the Derby Famous files from all 7 years of DF. We promise to continue the Derby Famous legacy with quality armbands and top-notch customer service. We are the only DFA armband provider. (Derby Famous Approved!)
