Nike SB's latest Quickstrike is a collaboration between Nike and the cult English skateboard brand Isle Skateboards. Isle Skateboards is run by creative duo Nick Jensen and Paul Shier. Isle Skateboards is known for its British contemporary graphic style, mixing typography, illustration, and photos on its decks and merchandise.
The beauty is in the refined detail of their Quickstrike Blazer Mid. It's a triple black Blazer with a deep rich black suede upper, with the fine line "Isle" signature logo stitched in white on the heal. The toe boxes and eyestays are in the same dark black tone. The highlight of the Blazers is a rough tan and indigo canvas patches placed on the lateral side. The rough-edged and stitched on patch has an early punk feel. The abstract tie-dyed indigo print has "Isle' handwritten in the bottom left corner on the patch. The rough-edge of the patch is complemented by the exposed foam on the black mesh tongues of the shoes. The tie-dye pattern also is repeated on the insoles. Shoes come with both black and tan laces.
