I thought I'd fill you in on what I know. I just spoke with my the Nike 6.0 Rep.....and from what I was told they are going to start to focus on key shop in the coming months. I've been inquiring about getting them for about 2 years now as some of our team riders have been part of their team and even gotten a pair of them through them. But, as I understand it, they simply hadn't put a sales team into place and as their focus has been on marketing, the only place you could find the shoes was on Nike's site and at majors like Zumies and Pac Sun. Which always baffled me as you would think they would want to start their entry in shops selling skates / supporting that lifestyle. That said, this is going to change in the coming months. They will be rolling out the product to a very select group of pro shops, offering alot of limited edition models to keep it super fresh and clean. They followed this with the Nike SB program and put the key shoes in core skate shops only. They said this has worked extremely well. I'll update you as I know more....but in the mean time....Matt Manzari was in the shop the other day and I saw some of his new limited edition shoes and they look great. And I spoke to Silas, their team manager, at the Wake Games, and think you will see lots more great things to come. I'll keep you posted as I know more.

PS: For those of you looking for some new shoes, I've just added UGP's new models and will be putting up some new styles from DVS later tonight.
