Nike Skateboarding, also known as Nike SB, is the Nike brand for its line of shoes, clothing, and equipment for skateboarding. In 1997, Nike commenced production of its own line of skate shoes. In 2002, Nike introduced the “SB” brand and in 2004, Nike SB signed Paul Rodriguez as a figurehead for the brand and recruited Lewis Marnell as the sole Australian team rider during the same period. In March of that year, Nike released the Nike Dunk SB collection, aimed towards skateboarders in California.
The associated shoe designs differed from the previous SB Dunk range in that they were designed specifically for skateboarding. The collection included increased padding, Zoom Air insoles, and enhanced material quality, including triple stitching, a standard for skate shoes. Paul Rodriguez then released a signature shoe model named the “Nike SB Paul Rodriguez Zoom Air Low”, and later in 2005, spokesperson Lance Mountain decided to release the Nike Blazer SB, a version of the Nike Blazer basketball shoe from the early 1970s. It was named the Nike SB Blazer and several new features were added, such as the padded collar and Zoom Air insoles.
Nowadays you can’t walk into a skate shop without see the Nike SB logo posted up somewhere. Producing some of the best selling skate shoes of present times, and having some of the biggest names in skateboarding representing them, they now have a full range of skateboarding apparel.
