Black Sheep vs Black Sheep Interview
« on: December 01, 2016, 07:43:55 AM »
I caught up with the guys at Black Sheep UK to chat about Manchester skateboarding, recent New Balance Numeric collaboration with Black Sheep Skate Shop of Charlotte, North Carolina alongside some thoughts on how the wider NB company being privately owned affects their approach to skateboarding.

"The owner of New Balance has been in the shop and asked for a pair of shoes, which kind of threw me, (laughs). The owner walked in here, Mr-Corporate-Whoever has never been here, do you know what I mean? It?s in a similar way to Sole Tech; Don Brown has walked in here and I?ve had lunch with him in the kebab shop. You?re closer to the people who make all the decisions and who own the company, in effect."

There's a Black Sheep in Brazil too. Just in case NB decides they want to add a shitty price point complete company to the mix.
