Nike SB

When professional skaters design their own sneakers, magic happens, and the Nike SB brand is a prime example.
Nike first approached the world of skateboarding in the late 1990s, but skaters were loyal to their brands and didn't take to Nike's products.
Things turned around when the Nike SB Dunk was introduced in 2002 after Sandy Bodecker joined the team, and skateboarding heavy-weight Paul Rodriguez joined Nike SB as a figurehead in 2004.
Currently, skateboarders Eric Koston, Stefan Janoski, Grant Taylor and Ishod Wair skate for the team, among others.

Sneaker Technology

Air Zoom is a responsive cushioning innovation that provides superior impact protection and board feel.
Nike SB shoes frequently have Zoom Air in the forefoot or heel to reduce impact and improve comfort during landings.
Pressurised Nike Air units provide low-profile cushioning and responsive springiness.
