Nike’s largest action sports store in Greater China opens in Beijing

Jan. 29 marked a big milestone for Nike Action Sports in China, as the brand opened its first action sports-specific store in Beijing. The store is located on the fifth floor of Joy City shopping center in the Xidan district, the heart of the city’s skateboarding community. At 110 square meters, it’s Nike’s largest action sports store in Greater China. Shoppers will find a full range of the latest Nike action sports footwear and apparel.

“Skateboarding is growing quickly in China, and there are many fans of the sport in the Xidan area,” said Jason Zhu, GM, Nike Action Sports in Greater China. “We chose this location to be closer to the skate communities. Many top athletes are already fans of Nike Skateboarding, and the new store will continue to bring Chinese skaters the most advanced products and best services available.”

Nike Skateboarding athletes Eric Koston and Sean Malto attended the opening ceremony and were joined by members of the Nike Skateboarding China team, including top Chinese skateboarder Che Lin as well as Boss Xie, Jeremy Hu, Daniel Jason Leung, Didi Liu and Hu Jinchen. The athletes answered questions from fans, and Koston showed off the second generation of his signature shoe – the Koston 2. Featuring Lunarlon cushioning and enhanced breathability, durability and fit, the Koston 2 will be available in early April.

The store mixes unique, artistic elements as well as cultural influences from the city itself to create an authentic, inviting space for the skate community. A table with tools is available for customers to fix their boards, and videos and photos help bring the sport to life throughout the store. Famed Beijing graffiti artist Li Qiuqiu created a unique painting in the store inspired by Nike SB athletes Koston, Paul Rodriguez, Omar Salazar and Che Lin. Brick walls and graffiti manhole covers add strong local flavor to the modern space. Members of the Nike SB team plan to visit the store regularly interact with skate fans.

SDA X SKDY “TIMES LIKE THESE” by Peter Yuill

04 June 2012, 05.24 | Posted in China Skate Event | No comments »


We caught up with Hongkong based artist Peter Yuill, who’s custom Skullcandy Aviator headphone is an addition to the SDA 2012 tour. Find out more about the artist and his work “TIMES LIKE THESE”:


SKATE DECK ART / Q Please tell us more about yourself and your work !

PETER YUILL / A
I was born in and educated in Canada and have been living and working in Hong Kong for two years.
My work deals with the divinity of the machine, the role it plays in our lives and with the development of the human existence. I also explore the powerful and seductive nature of symbols, nationalism, and empire.

Q What is special about the collaboration with Skullcandy for SDA?

A This exhibition is a great opportunity for me to explore working with other mediums that I usually don’t get to work with. Doing the piece on the skateboard deck was a great step outside the norm for me and I really enjoyed the unique challenges it had.

Q What is the inspiration for this particular artwork?

A My inspiration for this piece is the relationship of the British Empire to the development of Hongkong and the lasting impact it has had on the city. As well as how colonies like Hongkong helped to build the British Empire into the most power empire on the planet.

Q SDA is a unique concept and breaks down borders between boardsports, fine art and urban art. Tell us more about your contribution in the group show and how it influenced your creation for Skullcandy.

A Not only did I create a skateboard piece but I also customized a set of Skullcandy Aviator headphones. I tried to create a pearly glassy look but with a gritty studio vibe like they were an artists working headphones. I also drew on one of Hongkong signature Tong Lau buildings which always influence my work in one way or another.
