Throughout his career, many have said that Shane O’Neill is in a league of his own. And it turns out they were right! Shane is now the first Australian Nike athlete to have their name adorn signature Nike slips, which is an achievement that crowns 17 years of dedication to Nike SB. His signature shoe, aptly named ‘The Shane’, is a very skate-able alternative to the current skate offerings. It is simple, and simply beautiful.
A proud Melbournian, Shane decided to return to the land down under to host a celebration of the release and a new video part, The Extra Bit, filmed by Kevin Perez. To help him mark the occasion, his friends Sean Malto, Scuba Steve, Yuto Horigome, and more tagged along!
We sat down with the tech-wizard before the event to talk about the release of ‘The Shane’, its details, and the new video.
