Nike came on the scene in 1971 and spent years creating and innovating for a multitude of sports. In 1997, Nike decided to create some 'Skateboard specific' shoes after a large group of people had started skating in some of Nike's retro Basketball and Tennis shoes. Since this point, Nike have become synonymous with Skateboarding and have been driving and pushing the sport forward. Putting a lot of time and effort in to new technologies, skateparks and competitions. With one of the coolest teams in the world, their line-up features the likes of Eric Koston, Guy Mariano, Kevin Bradley, Grant Taylor and Ben Raybourn.
