By now most of you should have heard of the Made For Skate event that is taking place in Damski (Netherlands) on November 30th and produced by Nike SB. Our friends from Ben G are hosting the Pop-Up Store for the event and have worked with Nike on a special “Made For Skate” Blazer SB. In terms of looks the sneaker was inspired by the very first sneaker ever made specifically for skateboarding.

24 pairs of the Nike “Made For Skate” Blazer SB will be available at the pop-up store. Make sure to make it out there should you be around!
