What is April Skateboards?
Founded by professional skater Shane O’Neill in 2019, April Skateboards is a young skate team featuring notable pro skater Yuto Horigome, who has recently just released his own collaboration with Nike SB, a pair that has deservedly been included in top pairs of the year for many collectors. Since its inception, the brand has organically grown in strength, adding members such as Ish Cepeda and the legendary Guy Mariano. The team also includes a variety of young amateur skaters, all of whose future is looking bright and promising, much like the brand itself. Shane O’Neill is no stranger to collaborations, having teamed up with Diamond Supply Co. and Spitfire Wheels in the past, and now teaming up with Nike SB for a special iteration that will make a memorable impression on his career and help toward the growth of his young team of skating stars.
Let’s Get Into The Shoe
The Nike x April Skateboards SB Dunk Low is a pleasure to look at, boasting a clean white and turbo green upper, almost reminiscent of the iconic Diamond Supply iteration that stands as a grail for many. The use of white mesh complements the majority of the upper sidewalls and heel area, whilst a leather toe box offers a clean contrast and extra durability for those intending on skating in the pair. The standout detail is the eye-catching turbo green overlays, metallic silver swoosh, and April branding adorning the ankle and heel, providing a pop of colour and flash, resulting in a clean iteration that will be sure to become a future classic. Finishing off the fresh pair is an icy outsole that features a print of the brand’s signature rose printed beneath, all arriving in special edition packaging perfect to show off in the collection.
