Founded in Spring 2019 by Shane O’Neill, April Skateboards may be a newer name in the skateboarding world, but it's quickly gaining ground. Within just four years, the team has made significant strides in rider acquisition, tournament success, and positive public reception. Their latest endeavor, a collaboration with Nike on the SB Dunk Low, is set to skyrocket the team's recognition.
April's roster, featuring seasoned pros like Guy Mariano and rising stars such as Rayssa Leal, perfectly mirrors their inaugural Nike SB project. This collaboration rejuvenates the classic 1985 silhouette, originally designed by Peter Moore, with a contemporary twist. The sneaker showcases a blend of suede, mesh, and leather, adorned in a striking blue shade, previously seen on their skate decks and apparel. Complementing this are silver details, including the swooshes and co-branding, with the number four etched on the heel as a nod to the team's inception month.
The design is completed by an icy outsole, revealing rich blue nuances. With the sneaker set to launch on Nike SNKRS soon, the anticipation is palpable. Get a glimpse of this exciting collaboration in the recent promotional video and prepare for a November release that promises to be a milestone for April Skateboards in Nike Skateboarding history.
