Today we can give you an exclusive preview of the new collaboration between Nike SB and Skate Mental. Together the two worked on the Dunk High LR Premium. We have always been fans of Skate Mental and their strong graphics and overall ironic take on things.
The same is true with this new collaboration with Nike SB. Pure genius. They gave the Nike SB Dunk High LR Premium an inline skate make-over with the wheels printed on the mid-sole. [...]
Thanks Cole & Dashon.
Quoting a mail from Samuel Lye:
Well i started planning the idea of a wheel company in 2011. The idea came about when i needed new wheels. Here in New Zealand you can not buy wheels anywhere so are forced to buy them from over seas, because of this a lot of bladers quit the sport as its to expensive but also the time involved in waiting for the wheels to arrive is frustrating.
But i thought i could fix this by creating my own Brand!!! And so BlackSun came about, a lot of names were thought up with different concepts and possible images but something about BlackSun stuck in my head.
So after 8 months of ideas, planning, emails and phone calls the first proto types were made. Testing came next to make sure the wheels were the best they could be, so a lot of skating went down on different terrain types, parks, ramps and street. After i was happy, my artist Anna Johnstone from Nelson NZ went to work in creating some amazing wheel designs and logos for the brand, making sure that i was completely happy with the final result. She was amazing and without her help i wouldn’t be where i am now with the brand.
It was then all ago and production began. So after a year, the wheels have gone from an idea to reality and i couldn’t be happier. The support from the New Zealand rollerblading community has been amazing and they are as keen to see it succeed as i am. The feed back on the wheels is also outstanding. I now look to the future and growing the brand, supporting rollerblading and keeping the price low.
