Nike skate shoe drops and rumors used to actually be pretty interesting. The swoosh can still brighten an otherwise gray day if they are putting out something unique or suddenly decide to roll out some random pair of kicks to five shops or so. Basically, they do a very good job of keeping you on your toes month-to-month.
However, as of late trade show photos wind up leaving very little to the imagination. Sneakers that are coming out next Fall an Winter have already made appearances on a number of sites. The interesting part for me is when I see CCS carrying shoes nobody else has. Does this mean these are CCS exclusive Nike SB’s? No. Absolutely not. But, it’s still funny.
