Geoff McFetridge just completed a mural at the historic West LA Courthouse skate spot. The mural is part of a greater project that reopened and repaired the spot, with Nike SB, local government and skaters working together to have it back open to public. Juxtapoz' Sam Graham went and snapped some shots this weekend. Public art, public space, skating... perfect. We asked Geoff to talk about the project, about both the mural and the skate spot itself, and in his own words, this is what he told us.

According to Hypebeast, "the shoe takes cues from his art installation'“Northwest Passage' and adopts his signature tribal identity alongside an iridescent upper reminiscent of bronze casting."

Back in 2011, in conjunction with September 2013 cover artist Geoff McFetridge's mini skate park installation for MOCA's Art In the Streets exhibition, the Los Angeles-based artist created 24 unique pairs of Nike SB Dunks, with each shoe being made from an original paper painting. The sneakers were then auctioned off to benefit the MOCA Foundation. In honor of the project, we take a look back at some of the great drawings that made their way into the series...

Yesterday, at Nike's headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon, Juxtapoz was invited to attend both a design and innovation summit based around Nike's new campaign, "Nature Amplified," and two new running shoe releases that will challenge and invigorate the notion of the running shoe. Nike, at its core, has always been about running, and we got to test out both the Nike Free Flyknit and Free Hyperfeel. But even better, we got to experience some pretty amazing visual presentations and installation showcases of both art and shoe, design and progression of technologies.

Friend of Juxtapoz magazine, and former cover artist from September 2011, Neck Face, has just created a capsule collection with Nike SB that features a snapback hat, Blazer series, t-shirts, and backpack. With Neck Face having obvious ties in the skate world, its nice to see a simple logo treatment and some of the cleanest Blazers you will ever get. Look for the collection now...

Last week, Nike invited Juxtapoz to their 21 Mercer space in SoHo, NYC, to create a pair of bespoke Nike SB Janoski’s, the newest addition to the customizable NikeID collection. We sent our good friend, director Colin Devin Moore to the studio to get his NikeID chops on, and who better to walk him through the process than, Stefan Janoski, himself.
