Just peeped out the newly redesigned website from Nike SB, and much like their shoes, the shit is high tech and incredible.
Oh yes indeedy I am a fucking blatant swoosh disciple, no shame in my game!
I really don't give a rat's butthole about their politics or that sweatshop stigma that they're often associated with, bottom line is that they make great shoes and I have been riding Dunks for 5 or 6 years now and they are without question the most comfortable and easy to skate in shoes I've ever worn.
Also it doesn't hurt that the team manager Andy Henrie is from Hawaii and just so happens to throw a box my way every now and then, huge shout out to the Mad Professor, what up braddah man???
Speaking of Andy, Sergeant Skate is without question the rippingest TM in the industry and worthy of mad salutes and respect because he definitely knows how to keep his troops motivated, which he does by consistently shredding just as hard or often even harder than they do.
I've been lucky enough to be there in person a few times when Andy has brought some of his swoosh soldiers to the islands for a bit of shralping, most recently was a couple of months ago when Daniel Shimizu, Chet Childress, Lance Mountain and Grant Taylor came out for a little R and R mixed in with a bit of movie making with filmer Jason Hernandez.
Now for New Year's Nike has put together a little web video featuring a bunch of clips that were filmed all over the world in 2010, some of which were documented right here on Oahu last November.
What's Crooked Arm doing at the Manana park in Pearl City?
Did Grant Taylor own the North Shore park?
Was Grant going fast at Wallows?
Did this hurt?
Check out this tasty morsel now to find out the answer to these questions and also so you can peep sizzling new footage from Stefan Janoski, Clark Hassler, Daniel Shimizu, Youness Amrani, Lewis Marnell, and Weiger Van Wageningen or however the fuck you say his name:
