The History Of Nike Skateboarding Shoes

The History Of Nike Skateboarding Shoes In 2002 Nike came out with the SB brand standing for skateboarding. Nike SB had released Nike SB Dunk Lows with padded tongues and collars with the "Zoom Air" in soles to attract skateboarders to shoes similar to the padding in DC Shoes and Vans. After not selling the Dunks well, they released four other models. The Nike SB Angus, Nike SB FC, Nike SB Delta Force and Nike SB URL. Just like the Dunks these didn't sell well either. TURNING POINT: In 2004, Nike SB tried hard to stay in the skateboarding industry so they decided to sign Paul Rodriguez to give more fame to the Nike SB name. In 2005 Nike SB gave Paul Rodriguez his own pro model shoe named the Nike SB P-Rod. After selling Nike SB's star shoe, it gave the company some recognition to the skateboarding market. That same year one of Nike SB's spokespersons, Lance Mountain, decided to release the Nike Blazer SB, a suped-up version of the Nike Blazer basketball shoe from the early 1970's. They named it the Nike SB Blazer and added a few new features such as the padded collar and "Zoom Air" insoles. There are many Nike SB shoes that have collectible value or limited release status such as the Nike SB "What The Dunk" Dunks and the Nike SB "Tiffany" Dunks that were being bought by non-skaters and being resold for prices that were much greater than the MSRP. In 2007 Nike SB released their first video entitled "Nothing But The Truth". The video consisted all the Nike SB Askateboard film by Pros, Ams and some of the Flow riders. NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH FEATURING: Brian Anderson, Chet Childress, Reese Forbes, Clark Hassler, Gino lannucci, Stefan Janoski, Todd Jordan, Lewis Marnell, Lance Mountain, Dan Murphy, Paul Rodriguez, Omar Salazar, Daniel Shimizu, Danny Supa, Grant Taylor, Weiger Van Wageningen, and other special guests. In 2009 Nike SB gave rider Stefan Janoski his own pro model (aptly named the Zoom Stefan Janoski SB) as well as signed Eric Koston who had earlier in the year left Lakai Footwear. In addition, a video featuring the Nike SB Amateur team (known as "Debacle") was released later in the year. omar sala In 2010 signed Omar Salazar For Nike SB.
