Did u try calling the shop? (Black sheep)
I sent them a couple of emails and no reply from the shop. But I haven't tried calling because I'm located in Europe.
Speaking of the PIF Black Sheep
I'm curious if the boomboxes are exactly the same as the ones from 2014
Anyone order one? I'm half tempted just to see if there are any differences (pretty sure they aren't leftovers from the cancelled release party)
Curious too! I was surprised they still had the chains too.
HERITAGE, ALL DAY.
Paying homage to a favorite skate spot back home in Atlanta,
Grant Taylor adds a black-and-white graphic revealed by a clear outsole.
Shop Nike SB Blazer GT
AVAILABLE AUG 17
NIKE SB BLAZER 'LANCE MOUNTAIN'
From '78 to today, the legend pays homage
to his influences and his ongoing love of it all.
Last time I bought from him he charged shipping on top of the price. He asks for your shipping state so I think its whatever the standard usps shipping rate is from L.A.
those GTs are beautiful. Can never go wrong with that c/w whether its af1 or GT.
pretty sure they released reg. blazers in that colorway just don't have them.
Those black blazer lows are nice.
Nike should do a Heineken Light. Make it a white based shoe, so basically reverse Heineken. LOW or High. I'd probably fox with it
those black blocks GTs are too sick
Best SBs in a while
From Stashed Boxes...
@volksnuts I got the new box to take pics if you'd like. Used to have the old box but sold it a couple years back, so can't really do a comparison but it does look seem the same as the older one. They probably just had more printed or maybe had a "really big" box of unfolded boxes stashed haha
This podcast gets into some interesting things about business and passions. For me I think skateboarders or people passionate about what they do are always going to want to have control over their own culture, and its difficult when a big business with lots of money and power start to take over your culture, for good or bad.
That is totally understandable to be upset, but its all about demand and how consumers react to products and marketing. When Nike wins, its because they know what people want and can speak to and “support” consumers.
In my opinion Consolidated Skateboards and the Dont Do It Foundation are old skaters upset they arent making money off their passion nor were able to keep their art director Todd Bratrud from selling out and designing for Nike SB. Life sucks and its alright to be upset when **** doesnt turn out how you like it, but I dont think you can battle this by ****ting on a brand and stabbing in the dark about all the bad **** they do for the industry or culture when they are making it possible for skaters to become millionaires and live out dreams that were once not possible.
Plus Nike has been on the feet of the the most respected skaters since 1985 when kids were wearing Jordan 1s and customizing them, thats history and real culture. Nike may be a big business and using some dirty marketing and money tricks to buy out the industry but in my view the bigger picture is getting kids outside and passionate about something that makes them feel good, because isnt that what skating is about? A non judgmental sport for the misfits and outcasts
i like the black w rainbow swoosh LM's actually. the all rainbow is not my cup of tea. i would get the black ones tho
Shout out to @verse001 (almost 100% sure I got these from you). Rest assured they will be well taken care of. I will probably throw them on today, so happy to finally have them. Only need the whites to complete the set now.
Rocked these yesterday...
