The Shaun White Skate Shoes should start hitting Target stores around the country this August. Early drawings of the Shaun White Skate shoes should be available next month.

As with all of the shoes Target sells the Shaun White skate shoes will only be available in sizes up to 15 mens. Target historically has neglected the shoe market of larger sized feet. Since the Shaun White skate shoes will only be available at Target do not expect the Shaun White skate shoes to be as popular in the skating market with younger skaters as other brands of skating shoes are such as DC skate shoes.

Young skaters tend to be loyal customers and followers of skating celebrities but do not expect a huge skate following of Shaun White and his new skate shoes. Shaun White has been focusing on snowboarding. The young target market of the Shaun White skate shoes will not be shopping at Target. They will either buy there skate shoes at the local skate shop or at an online website such as Zappos.

The Shaun White skate shoes were announced in a press release from Target. The Press release from target about the Shaun White Shoes announces:
