Nike veteran Sandy Bodecker, who was instrumental in the sportswear giant's SB and football divisions, has passed away after 36 years at the company. Bodecker initially joined Nike as a footwear test co-ordinator in 1982, before becoming the first general manager of the Nike SB skateboarding division.

Bodecker was named VP of Special Projects in 2012, although he was best known for his work on SB, which cemented Nike as a giant in the skateboarding world. Under Bodecker's leadership, Nike reworked basketball silhouettes like the Dunk and Blazer into skate classics, and laid roots in the skate scene thanks to projects with the likes of Supreme, Antihero and Zoo York.

Nike SB paid tribute to Bodecker in a recent Instagram post.

In recent news, PSNY pays tribute to Ralph Lauren's iconic Polo line with a special exhibition in New York.
