Thunder Trucks x Black Sheep Store – Lucien Costello

So as the story goes we’re celebrating our 10 Years Anniversary here at The Black Sheep Store. Early talks within the walls of Black Sheep ended with the idea of approaching a select few of our favorite brands and seeing if we could work together for some mutual collaborative celebrations. Fast forward to an unexpected visit from Deluxe (self proclaimed) ‘Janitor’ Jim Thiebaud over to Thunder Trucks UK distributor Shiner. Obviously we gratefully took the time and sat down to put the wheels (or trucks as you may) into action. At this point we’re having self doubt, obviously we’re sat mumbling through various life topics till the subject of collaborating is mentioned. Yes the nerves where kicking in and the thoughts of ‘have they even heard of our store in rainy Manchester’ started arising. All the uncalled for worrying over and with the backing of skateboarding brand royalty we’re just straight up hyped to bring this collaboration to fruition! As some will know the guys from Deluxe just do it ‘properly’ and have been bringing skateboarding’s most realist brands and consistently backing the skate stores that bring it to the masses.

 

Massive, massive thanks to all at Shiner Distribution and the good folk at Deluxe SF for putting this special release together. Collaborations like this for us are straight up heart warming and the global connection and hard work dedication of skateboarders is reinforced yet again.

 

Now to the edit with newly recruted Thunder flow rider Lucien Costello. It’s been said before but your sure to be seeing more from Lucien (once he figures out how good he is,haha.) Get your viewing pleaseure below and see what he’s capable of filming within a 24 hour time slot. Fine work Lucien and look forward to the ever delayed Black Sheep ‘Welcome Part’!

 

Again big thanks to Shiner’s social media lord and all round top bloke James ‘Danger’ Kenning for the edit.

Bobby De Keyzer’s “Blue Tile Lounge X Habitat” Part

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2016

 

Once again Bobby De Keyzer comes through with a spot on part! The part is in connection with the skater owned shop in Toronto the Blue Tile Lounge who have teamed up with Habitat skateboards to produce some shop decks with some of Bobby’s photography on them!  The part is full of what you would expect from him, crisp lines, board control which is second to non and some buttery ledge / grind variations.  A really good small part promoting a rad designed board as well!

Reiss Johnson

Friday, November 27th, 2015

 

At the Black Sheep Store we have some wonderful bosses and I’m not just saying that to get a pay rise. Harry and Tez are generally top dudes and I personally couldn’t thank them enough. Not only have they given so much to Manchester skateboarding over the years, risking mortgages and food for their amazing kids but they have also supplied many of us with jobs. One person they’ve helped out for the past year is Reiss Johnson. Many of you may recognize him for shredding transition like there’s no tomorrow.

It is now unfortunate to announce it’ll be his last day working for us at The Black Sheep Store. Reiss is one of those dudes that has an infinite amount of knowledge, whether it be in brew making or where the next sink hole will appear. For those that haven’t met him personally in our store, maybe due to him working hard behind the scenes, he’s a top lad! He’s a good friend, great colleague and a barrel of laughs. There are various rumors to where he’ll be forwarding his career but after his earlier announcement he will be venturing out into the gay porn industry. Good luck pal, hope it serves you well.

Mr Johnson will still be a valuable member of our infamous skate team. Hopefully we can expect to see some more video parts in the near future. Here’s his welcome edit that was nothing but power….

 

 

It’s been great having you part of the team pal….. NOW FACK OFF HAWK!

 

 

 


Nike SB Spring 14′ Drop 2

Saturday, January 18th, 2014


 

Nike SB have already come through with a unique colour pallet on the 1st drop on the SS14 release including the Lunar One Shot which you may have already read about on our blog. The 2nd drop of the season introduces a revolutionary take on the best selling skate shoes from Nike SB, the Janoski & Koston 2 to create a unique shoe. Each design combines the key components from the Janoski and Koston 2 with running inspired elements from Nike’s Air Max and Free Run sole technology to create an innovative hybrid for skateboarding.

 

 CLICK HERE TO PRE-ORDER NOW

 

The Nike SB Janoski Max features a breathable, extremely lightweight synthetic mesh upper which is detailed with a faint camouflage layer. The outter sole is fused with the flexible Nike Free tread at the front, with Air Max style sole at the heel which will provide extra impact protection, the speckled sole really adds a splash of character to the shoe. Available in Midnight Navy/White and Crimson Red/White.

The Nike SB Koston 2 Max is a transformed take on the Koston 2‘s. As with the Janoski, the Koston 2 Max carries the same sole structure with the Free Run along the front outter-sole completed with Air Max rear sole. The new design features lightweight Hyperfuse and mesh construction while the combination of a Max Air heel unit and Free forefoot provides a flexible cushioning.

 

PLEASE NOTE THIS IS A PRE-ORDER: The expected shipping date is the 20th of January. If the pre-order product is part of a larger order containing other items, we will despatch those items to you on the selected delivery service.
