Every Nike SB collaboration has a bit of a â€œstoryâ€ to it. We could sit here and peddle some narrative where everyone wears all black to hide the dirt from skating the city all day, and how all the reflective details make you stand out between the cabs while night skating, but thatâ€™d be nonsense.
If you read this site enough, you should have known that weâ€™d go fashion over concept from the very beginning. For example, the Chromeball Dunk had an awesome story behind it, but we live in New York â€” we get shunned for wearing earthtones out here. Between all the luxury brand inspired colorways and New York Post headline-inducing mini riots, the greatest SB Dunk to date (at least for purely skateboarding purposes) was the simplest one of all. It was the Weiger shoe: black pig suede with a white check. Every person affiliated with this website had at least two pairs of it.
A black skate shoe never falls out of fashion or function. That was our template.
From then on, it was only a matter of how many fancy details we could get away with. QS has always been about appreciating the subtler side of skateboarding, and it made sense to not go overboard with loud branding. Thanks to Alex Dymond, Andre Page, Mike Cherman and everyone at Nike SB who made this possible, but more importantly, thanks to all you guys who visit the site and have made it respected enough to give this collaboration any motion to begin with.
Yes we stole this from WWW.QuarterSnacks.COM
