"Nike SB has become our best selling skate shoe. The Koston, Janoski, Team and the old Tre style are great skate shoes. While we do have one of our top team skaters rocking dunk mids, most of the bulkier shoes are not being skated in by the daily rider."
Annapolis Maryland (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
Pure Board Shop has received their April line-up of the hottest skate shoe brand out right now, Nike SB.
Pure has been carrying skateboarding footwear since they first opened in 1993, under the name of Evolve.
Beginning in 1993 after about 5 years of crazy colored hightops; with Etnies, Vans and Airwalk, skateboarding shoes started as simple, suede single colorway sneakers.
These evolved into larger, more technical shoes.
Created to protect the feet from the abuse of hardcore skateboarding and also to be as colorful as they were big in size.
Emerica, Es, Globe, DVS, Osiris and DC all became staples in any local skate shop.
Airbags, double fat tongues, huge cup soles all became the norm.
When clothing slimmed down and most skaters wanted more board feel, shoes also slimmed down to a size originated by Vans.
Vulcanized soles and simple designs, seamless toe areas and cleaner lines all contributed to the look on any skateboard shop's wall.
Nike SB entered the market, again, around 2002, with their dunk type sneakers and slowly made their way into the skate market.
Today Nike SB has the lowest saturation of the top 10 shoe brands in skateboarding and is usually in the top 1 or 2 in sales for certain styles of shoe.
April 2012 is no exception to the rule and Pure has the new Nike SB Dunk Low, Stefan Janoski and the Dunk Mid.
There will be 2 Nike SB Quickstrike shoes, (a very limited shoe put out once a month and sold in a small number of SB dealers), this month also and Pure will be dropping both.
Pure also sells other limited shoe releases from Adidas Skateboarding, HUF, Vans, DC, Globe to name a few.
Pure's Newsletter goes out every Wednesday to their email customers and their social media networks.
This weeks Deal is 15% off any purchase on pureboardshop.com.
