The 1st Nike SBs

I remember these from H-Street's 1988 classic skate video "Shackle Me Not"

Ray Simmonds has on the blue and yellow colorway in his part.

I love these old videos would always sneak in some crazy technical freestyle crossover trick amidst the other tame (by today's standards) handrails, gaps, stairs, etc.

Like the front foot impossible out of the fuckin' blue.

I think Chet Thomas did an ollie impossible off a ledge in Public Domain, but it was just a blip in a series of quick edits. 5 years later, it is an early 90s staple, shot in slo-mo and all. I wonder why nobody went nuts for it way back then.

Remember the Airwalk Enigmas? Some dude must have unearthed a case of them and is selling them on ebay now. All sizes. Ahead of their time. Go search it.
