Nike SB Dunk Low Premium "Beijing"

by Steph McGilvra on September 16, 2014

Our Quick Strike release of Nike SB's Dunk Low Premium "Beijing" arrived today. These dunks are themed after century-old alley ways and buildings in Beijing China. Each pair is slightly different due to the treatment of the suede materials, resulting in a weathered look, but soft feel. The sock liners have a waffled pattern to them, with matte finish. The tongue tag has an image of a Chinese door knocker, and the insoles have theme-specific art. It's finished with a dark translucent ice grey outsole. These are available today!




















Cali High Quick Strike + Fall Releases

by Steph McGilvra on September 08, 2014

We just got several shipments of shoes all at the same time. It's an unfortunate product of the dock worker strike happening down in California right now. Some of the shoes we received were intended to be here about 3 weeks ago. Never the less, they are finally here. If you have been looking for Quarter Snacks, Cali Highs, or some of the other fall offerings, now is the time to come in and check them out. 

First up we have the Cali HIgh Quick Strike. These are a high top version of the Iconic Cali Dunk. It is patterned after the California state flag. It features super supple tumbled leather upper with brown suede side panels. The red outsole with green midsole pops nicely and the star on the strap is embroidered. Over all, the quality of these is really nice. We do also have the T-Shirts in 2 colors to match the shoes. 



















The Quarter Snacks Dunk is deceptively simple. On the surface, it appears to be a regular black/white dunk. But when you inspect if further you will find buttery pig suede, a stuffed rip-stop tongue, tumbled leather swoosh backed with silver reflective treated leather, a special embroidered 25 cent heel hit, heel tabs that say "quarter" on the right foot and "snacks" on the left.  It's finished off with custom insole art, and a special quarter snacks branded eyelet chain. The alternate laces are reflective silver! If you are unfamiliar with quarter snacks, check out their website. It's dedicated to skateboarding and New York skate culture. 







































September also offers a Dunk Low Pro in a really strong Obsidian/Crystal Mint-Gym Red color way. It features a suede upper with embosses leather swoosh, and stuffed tongue. 


A new addition to Nike SB is the Koston Mid. This shoe is built on the successful Koston 1 model, but has the addition of a little height in the ankle to give you more protection. It still features a Lunarlon insole for impact protection and a cup sole for durability. 



The kids might be back in school but summer is not over for the "Beach" themed Janoski. Khaki canvas upper with a print of beach umbrellas and people enjoying Beach activities. These make you want to take a vacation.


Last but not least we have the Janoski Max in black suede. This is first time they have done suede on this model and the sought after black/white color way make it a perfect every day shoe. 

Whew. That's a lot for one update. I didn't even mention the fact that we have new longboards from Arbor, decks from Baker and Deathwish, new apparel from Brixton and RVCA or more wheels from Portland Wheel Company. Later this week we will also have more trucks from Independent, more Rails and a restock on Bones wheels and bearings. We've been busy, and we haven't even gotten our snow gear yet.

Nike SB Dunk High "Paparazzi" QS and P-Rod 8 QS

by Steph McGilvra on August 09, 2014

Sorry for the late post on these everyone, we've been busy lately and the BP "Paparazzi" just arrived Friday. The dunk high premiums feature a "Paparazzi" inspired camera flash pattern, premium suede with a pattern as well and a black velvet heel area. They are for sure a detail laden shoe. Next up we have the new P-Rod in black with metallic gold accent. This shoe is filled to the brim with technology. Full Lunar midsole, lunar insole, and Flywire make for a super comfortable, impact ready, reactive shoe. This shoe is begging to be put on and sent down that ten stair you have been looking at!

Updated Skateboard Wall

by Steph McGilvra on July 28, 2014

With all the summer heat starting up again we thought we would take some updated pictures of the skateboard wall. Our inventory changes daily so please keep in mind that these are only pictures for reference of the variety of boards we try to keep in stock. We are always adding new brands, shapes, and selection so be sure to stay up to date by stopping by and having a look. There are always new boards to check out!





























July Nike SB arrival

by Steph McGilvra on July 18, 2014

Well our July offerings from Nike SB were a little late but they are starting to trickle in. First up we have the Dunk High Premium in a very cool ballistic nylon tie-die in black and white. Tongue tag and insole are detailed in a nice multi-color tie die as well. Finished off with a gum bottom sole for great traction on grip. These are lighter and more breathable this time of year for sure. Second we have a slight nod to a classic black/white Janoski but with a new treatment applied to the red leather side panel. Adding this bit of red sets this shoe off nicely.


Up next, a sure winner in a Lunar Janoski in a Camo suede with gum. This application of a camo on suede is a first for Nike, and they look and feel great!. Along with the excellent fabric choice they are riding on the light, impact protection and comfort of the Lunar One Shot midsole/outsole which provides more board feel and better cushioning than a standard Janoski. And as with prior releases the piping is treated with Flash and is reflective. Lastly, stay tuned to the blog or @sublimityboards on instagram for more SB's coming soon.         



Lance Mountain X Jordan 1 SB

by Steph McGilvra on June 04, 2014

We will be releasing both of the Nike SB X Jordan 1 Lance Mountain Quick Strikes this Saturday June 7th. This will be a raffle release. We will start selling raffle tickets at 10am for $5.00, one ticket per customer. We hope to start drawing winning numbers at 10:45. Each winner will be allowed to purchase one pair of each color way. All raffle proceeds will benefit the Hillsboro Boys and Girls Club.

These shoes tie into the early 80's days of skate culture when Lance Mountain and other skaters were spray painting their shoes all sorts of different colors and revealing the original colors as they skated them. Each color of this release will wear to one royal color way and one black/red color way. So if you are lucky enough to win and choose to purchase both releases you will have two matching pair. 

We will have sizes 10, 10.5, 11, 11.5, and 12 with some multiples





Product updates and release info for May 31st

by Steph McGilvra on May 30, 2014

First off, how great is this weather? Awesome right? We have been busy in the shop getting new products in and on the floor and there are some really great things to talk about! First on the Nike SB front we have received what some are calling the "Captain America" Dunk High Premium SB. These feature some really nice oiled leather and smooth suede along with a July 4th theme of stars and stripes. Combine that with a black midsole and a gum rubber outsole and you are left with an amazing shoe!















Tomorrow, May 31 we have the black/white Lunar Janoski launch. This shoe is new to the SB line and is the first you can pick up a pair in a classic black and white. The lunar one-shot midsole and outsole makes this Jano a must have for more board feel, control, and impact protection. The second picture shows the reflective piping. (camera flash, headlights, etc) We also have some select restock in Blazers, Jano premium mids, and Dunk Mids. 














We also received more Independent,Thunder,and Krux trucks, skate decks from Creature, Flip, Real, Crooked, Anti-Hero, Enjoi, Almost, Cliche, Girl and Chocolate. On the longboard front we restocked on Atlas trucks, Sector 9 decks and wheels, and Venom bushings. Lots of spring/summer clothing has been slowly coming as well. Stay tuned for more product launch updates and as always find us on Instagram @Sublimityboards if that fits your fancy.



15th Anniversary shop decks are in stock!

by Steph McGilvra on May 23, 2014

We just received our new shop decks with the 15 year anniversary art work. The theme was a party gone wrong, and if you take a look you will see what we mean. There's a lot going on. We had them produced in the same factory as our previous boards, so the quality and shapes are on point. The art was done by friend of the shop-Willis Schafer. We have this graphic available in cruiser shapes, and popsicle shapes from 7.4 to 8.5 inches. 

Nike World Cup QS Lunars

by Steph McGilvra on May 19, 2014

This month we have TWO Lunar Quickstrikes. The first one comes in the form of an ALL NEW Stefan Janoski on the Lunar ONESHOT midsole! This World Cup release features a black suede upper and REFLECTIVE piping detail. The contact colors are reminiscent of the BHM Dunk as well. 


Second is the Lunar oneshot in black. This shoe also gets the reflective treatment on the swoosh and has matching silver accents and a volt midsole. If you haven't skated the Lunar oneshot yet, you are in for a treat for sure! 


BOTH of these will release THIS Saturday, May 24th at 11:00 am
