Chicago legend, Stevie “Dread” Snyder came up at a time long before shoe deals, bangin’ video part deadlines, photo incentives and Fuel TV. A time when best thing about being a skater then is that it was totally hated. You were the black sheep, and that was the point. Thats why you were a skater. Stevie represents the true spirit of skate and destroy. And now Nike is honoring him with his own pair of kicks.
Chi-town’s Uprise Skateboards will be hosting a special release party for Stevie's Nike SB Blazers alongside Stevie, whom has been involved with Uprise since their beginnings in ‘97.
Uprise will receive an exclusive for a couple weeks, launching them this Saturday February, 28th (8pm-12am) while other select SB accounts will receive their shipment in mid-March.
