By now, most shops have received their 2012 April Nike SB shipments. If you’ve been paying attention, you’ll notice the pro-model shoes have dropped the SB; presumably, this has to do with Nike expanding their distribution to bigger, i.e. mall, shops. Does this make the Koston any less comfortable? Or the Janoski any less skateable? Nope.
The general consensus around the interwebs seems to be disappointment that Nike SB has let the prestige of the SB line go to the mall, but like I asked above, does that change what these shoes were originally made for? Of course not. Just because the Kostons and P. Rods and Janoskis are available everywhere doesn’t mean you can’t support your local shop (or friendly internet retailer).
Anyways, Tactics is one of the core shops that’s been down with Nike SB since 2003 and they have a quick video look at all the Nike shoes that shipped this month, so take a look at the video above and check out all Nike SB available at Tactics.com right here.
