“Whether it’s in the terrain, riding something new or in a different way, or in the maneuvers, the story of progressive skateboarding is creating with individuality and bringing something completely new to it. It’s about the creative experience in skateboarding—the whole essence of riding a skateboard is that each individual gets to bring new ideas and breaking boundaries, open to interpretation. By doing creative things, intertwined and alongside of it, is all part of showing the inventive core—because the whole aspect of skateboarding is a creative expression.” — Lance Mountain
“Ever since we started doing these 100 Kickflip videos we’ve had a ton of people asking to do their own so we partnered with Nike SB to offer someone that very chance! Out of 1300 people tagging their best kickflips on Instagram it was Trevor McCune of Bakersfield CA who took the top prize. We flew Trevor up to Portland so he could do his very own 100 Kickflip challenge at the Nike SB park with Bobby Worrest in a new NBA edition Bruin shoe. It turns out he’s really, really good so this was not that hard for him… Check out the Bruin low as well as a ton of other Nike SB product at CCS now, and MAJOR congrats to Trevor for blowing our minds!” – CCS

In 1998, Diamond Supply Co, was born as a skateboarding hardware line that would become one of the most revered skate and lifestyle brands two decades later. Led by founder Nick Tershay, Diamond Supply Co. has since stretched into multiple subcultures, including the sneaker world, with their 2005 take on the Nike SB Dunk Low, known as the “Diamond Dunk.” Now in 2018, the brand celebrates its 20th anniversary with three new iterations of the famed sneaker. SNKRS and Nike SB look back at 2005’s Diamond Dunk seminal launch and how it shaped sneaker cultures for years to come. Pick them up HERE.
GT for GA. Grant charges in his latest Blazer, the “Bruised Peach”, a nod to his southern roots. Like a good hipper, the “Bruised Peach” Swoosh wears away revealing a deep purple underneath the more they’re worn in. “The ‘Bruised Peach’ is spot on. It’s got an even better look once worn and torn, beat up and bruised.” — Grant Taylor
