Q&A with Johnny Tang

Johnny Tang, a true skateboard rider who has skated for 19 years till now.
His skateboard setup is 8.0 deck, highs, 51mm, Allen key, and he skates in US 9 shoes. 

In 2006, a few Global Nike SB members made a trip to China to film some clips for “Nothing But the Truth”, 
Johnny was probably the only one they could find who knew the spots and spoke both Chinese and English.
So, he naturally became their tour guide.
During that trip, Johnny skated a few spots with the Nike SB team and the team managers (Kevin Imamura and Hunter Murraira) were interested in starting a China Nike SB team.

Soon after that, Johnny got a call from Kevin Imamura who offered him a job at Nike SB.
Johnny was the first member of China Nike SB team and has been representing Nike SB till today. 

Please welcome Johnny to the latest #5pmQnA
and enjoy the full texts in our Instagram story highlights!

It’s that simple, but it still demonstrates the sophistication. 

With our curiosity, we asked a few questions to the designer Amber, to find out her inspiration.

For most Finns, wool socks are very essential for their winter.

To find out how the traditional wool socks are made,
we paid a visit to Helsingin Villasukkatehdas— meaning Helsinki Wool Sock Factory.
It is the only traditional wool sock factory in Finland that’s using carded wool yarn,
and very possibly the only one in the world.
