    so here we have a dilemma.
    nike has borrowed the minor threat cover
    as a marketing poster for their sb tour.

    dont neglect to recognize the this is nike SKATEBOARDING
    not to be confused with the bloodsucking corporate honchos
    at just plain old nike. nike SKATEBOARDING. the realness.
    peace.

    ps: nike, the same people who bought converse and now
    pay people less to make chucks but sell them for more.
