Well, that was about time! Ishod finally gets his first ever pro model on Nike SB and to celebrate this historical event Nike called up a few team mates, got together and created the video above. It doesn’t always have to be a video part. CLICK HERE to purchase the shoes.

Unaware as they all must have been on this trip it ended up being a swan song in style.

R.I.P. Jake Phelps.

The third and final installment of a series of collaborative moves that can only be described as bringing the best of both worlds.

Fashion and product design from a company that brings together runway and youth culture combined with the swagger of Portland’s finest, combined with a legend like Eric Koston and you get FRI.day.

Before you press play take a trip down memory lane and check out the first FRI.day 001 video:

Shot in Soulland’s home town of Copenhagen, Denmark. Featuring a strong crew consisting of Eric Koston, Hjalte, Karsten, Hugo, Ville, Jugga & Oski.

Then after we got the sequel with the 002 episode traveling all the way to Eric’s hometown of Los Angeles to show and prove that the first one was not a fluke. Check out our little talk with one of PLACE’s favorites Ville Wester here.

And now we are at the third and final stop, a stop that unlike the first two doesn’t visit a person but visits Soulland’s own Silas Adler’s home of inspiration, Tokyo. We like you are excited so press play and let the FRI.day venom spike into your veins 🐍

A proud moment, our former intern and friend Augustin Giovannoni filmed and edited this new Nike SB video, not any nike video. This one has some big guns in it, Koston, Kyron, JB, Vincent with Paul Rodriguez being the stand out!
We think that after his knee heals up P-Rod needs to hop on a plane because Paris brought out the best in him.

The description Johnny now John Wilson gave on his Vimeo says it all this is an old clip he probably made right after this Nike SB trip to Argentina. Now it is a video for us all to watch. Enjoy!

The fifteen years anniversary of the Nike SB Dunk still echos on through the scene. I guess, more or less everybody is aware of the fact that this shoe truly is something special. But how exactly was the enormous hype created? Listen to the stories of shop owners, collaborators and, of course, the skateboarders who followed the history of the shoe through the years and helped to make the SB Dunk a legend.

Ishod Wair’s ability to get better at skateboarding every time something new comes out does not seem to calm. Here’s a nice new piece by NikeSB for Ishod’s Dunk Low Pro. Keep em coming, man!

Eric Koston recently effected a collaboration between Soulland and Nike SB, which is called FRI.day and then went out to Copenhagen to join the Euro riders to produce one of the best Swoosh clips I have ever witnessed. The collection is looking pretty dope as well!

Eric Living Legend Koston is unstoppable. Even with 40 years of age he is dropping full parts like a young gun. His appearance in Nike SB Chronicles Vol. 3 shows ones again that for some lucky ones age is just a number and we truly believe that this is far away from being Koston’s last part of his eternal career. Legendary.

The Swoosh just announced, that their third part of the “Chronical” Videos will be released in December. Line up reads more than good, expect parts from Karsten Kleppan, Lance Mountain, Eric Koston, Kevin Bradley, Trevor Colden, Cory Kennedy and Brian Anderson. Get hyped, here’s the teaser:

Die Zeit rennt. Immer. Unaufhaltsam. Und schon ist der Mai fast vorbei – eine willkommene Gelegenheit für uns euch nochmals die Highlights des Monats zusammengefasst ans Herz zu legen. Was los war, lest ihr hier – viel Vergnügen:

Skateboarding im digitalen Zeitalter – eine Analyse.

Eric Koston war sechs Tage in Berlin und die gesamte Skateboard Welt konnte es live mitverfolgen. Im Minutentakt gab es Instagram Updates; darauf zu sehen war die amerikanische Skateboard Legende in allen möglichen Lagen und Lebenssituationen. Nicht verwunderlich, denn wenn man mit Social Media Experten wie Atiba Jefferson, Foley oder Sean Malto durch Berlin zieht, wird auch gerne mal der ein oder andere Moment festgehalten. Wir haben Erics digitale Fußabdrücke in 36 Schritten zusammengefasst, und waren nur so nah dran wie du es auch sein kannst:

Der legendäre Schulhof der Lockwood High School in Los Angeles hat unzählige Tricks gesehen und kann durchaus als Talentschmiede bezeichnet werden. Eric Koston ist Local der ersten Stunde und hat genau diesen Spot gewählt um für Oakley über Skateboarding zu sinnieren:
