Since working his way up from a footwear tester at Nike in the 80s, Sandy Bodecker left his mark on everything from running to soccer at the Swoosh. His most lasting legacy, though, was giving skaters a voice at Nike and building SB from a crazy idea into what it is today.
With an outsized personality, a stubborn will and two middle fingers always in the air, if it was impossible, Sandy was the guy to get it done. He helped shape everything that Nike SB has become: from the team of riders to the way we think about the shoes themselves.
Although he passed away in October of 2018, his fingerprints are still all over everything at Nike SB.
