The process started by identifying everything I believe is needed in a skate shoe. From the bottom of the sole to the height of the heel and every little detail in between. Once we’d figured out exactly what was going in the shoe for skating we then worked on the overall look and feel of the shoe. – Shane O’Neill

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”

Redbull’s Good Work Series features skater-owned and skater-operated businesses.

You can watch the first episode here or on the Red Bull Skateboarding YouTube Channel.
