Nike Skate Shop Day

Iím not too up on skate politics but am I tripping or did they pull their account from a ton of shops a few months ago which most likely can, did, or will put them out of business?

Not to mention a direct to consumer web store, making some of their shoes nearly impossible to get, putting many shops out of business by loading them with shoes that donít sell just to get a few pairs of the ones that do which leads to them unable to pay. Again someone else could probably put up a better argument than me but this seems like the most laughable hypocritical thing Iíve seen in a while.

Fake news that gets recycled every 2 years.

If your shop goes out of business due to the lack access for more popular Nike SB shoes, there's a good chance your shop sucked to begin with.

I have not seen a shop 'close' due to Nike SB, but uh yeah, keep fighting the good fight.

I donít have a local shop that isnít lame so I donít know. I donít even care that much I was just surprised someone didnít already start the topic.

Iím speculating off shit Iíve read/the way it seems like it naturally would go. The way I see it is that the younger generation likes Nike, that isnít going away, but if Nike pulls the account from a local shop those kids canít get what they want there anymore so they stop shopping there. This is out of the shops hands. The kids then buy them online or wherever else and that shop just lost a customer. If this happens enough times over that shop loses a lot of customers and without those customers that shop is not a shop. Is that that crazy to understand? Do you work for Nike? Do you care that much?

I know a shop that closed 100% due to owing Nike too much money from them sending a bunch of bs they were required to carry in order to get the ďcoolĒ shoes and this was like 15 years ago. Itís not like it doesnít/hasnít happened. Do you live in a skateboarding hot spot? Cause you may just not see it in a place where itís thriving

Yeah no shit you're speculating. What shops are currently on the brink of closing/have closed due to their Nike SB accounts being closed off?  One shop closing 15 years doesn't make it a precedent. You're saying it will/likely/already has happened.I also love how on Slap when you have a difference of opinion the default question is "Do you work for x?". I don't particularly care for Nike SB either.

I went on the Baker site to look something up, and it was closed with a message saying "Support your local shop!" which is pretty cool.

Youíre right I donít think you work for Nike sb. Iím starting to think that you ARE a Nike sb cause you really do seem to care. Itís all good, baby!

For real though if you think a place going out of business due to the inability to get a product that the majority of its customer base wants isnít a realistic scenario you really might actually be a sneaker.

Why didn't Nike do any skate shop day products like DLX, New Balance, Emerica and Vans? Even Russel brand made sweatshirts for shops lol. Nike is the same ones who make SB dunks that skaters dont even get a chance of buying to skate in anymore.

all of those dunks are sold through skate shops and they sell out instantly so I doubt any shops are complaining.

I remember seeing the Sixth Ave skatepark dudes in Tennessee being super bummed and posting about how they got an email from Adidas saying that they got their account closed for no reason and a "we wish your shop the best in the future" at the end of the email. This happened to quite a few shops actually.

I've also heard that Nike is only going to be selling to 40 shops by the end of the year as well as Adidas is supposed to stop selling wholesale entirely by 2023.

Anybody got an account that can load up some screenshots to the below article?

is T Huff getting hooked up by Nike (pretty certain he was flow for them 14 years ago) or is Ishod just really going out his way to include him in shit?
