To kick off 2012, Nike SB has signed Kansas City native and 2011 Street League champ Sean Malto.
Long considered to be one of the best up-and-coming skaters around, Malto has been crowned Rookie of the Year by Transworld and won the Reader’s Choice Award for “Best Pro” the following year.
As Malto said: “I’ve always been a fan of Eric Koston and Paul Rodriguez. Being on the same team as them is truly amazing. Plus, Nike has always been the leading brand in sports, with the most incredible athletes past and present – including my favorites Michael Jordan and Kevin Durant. it’s just an honor to be associated with a company like Nike. I feel we can do some awesome things in and for skateboarding!”
Stay tuned for future news regarding Malto, as the signing will more than likely result in some signature kicks somewhere down the road.
