Some joked SB stood for Sandy Bodecker. Truth is, SB wouldn’t be here without Sandy. With heavy hearts we say goodbye to our friend, the man who believed in Nike SB from day one and made it what it is today. Your legacy lives on through every individual here and you’ll inspire us forever. Rest in peace, Sandy.
He was also Nike’s first Vice President of Global Design. Our condolences go out to his family and his Nike staff.
