UPDATE: Black Unveils Nike SB Collab & ‘Epicly Later’d’ Parody

If you skate, you should be familiar with Black Bar. It’s partially owned by Heath Kirchart, Atiba Jefferson, Braydon Szafranski, Jerry Hsu, and Neckface. And between its locations in Hollywood and Long Beach has hosted more skate events than we care to count. Given Black’s ties to the culture, a Nike SB collaboration is long overdue. It was announced today via a mock Epicly Later’d episode posted on Black’s Instagram account. Have a first look at the Neckface-designed Black Nike SB Dunk High below. It will be releasing at select skate shops on October 27.

UPDATE 10.24.18: Black just released the full Epicly Later’d parody via YouTube. We’ve updated accordingly below.

He started skating when he was 10 and turned pro when he was just 16 years old.

He thinks that skateboarding has somehow helped him be successful in business.

“Skateboarding, it’s for the most part, a really inconsistent sport, which means you definitely have to have some patience and some perseverance…It’s allowed me to think outside the box and apply that ‘out of the box’ thinking to run my business”
