A Nike OG since 1979, Sandy worked on everything from soccer to running in his career, but his most lasting legacy was giving skaters a voice at Nike and taking a wild idea like Nike SB and making it real. With a defiant attitude and two middle fingers in the air at all times, Sandy was known as the guy who could achieve the impossible. Although he passed away in 2018, he will always be the man who put the SB in Nike SB.
