The Nike Free SB Skateboarding Shoe ($120,00) is the brand’s latest release – a superb pair of kicks, designed to provide groundbreaking flexibility and the ultimate in board control.
Similar to its awaited cross trainers, the Metcon 1 (coming out January 31st), the new Nikes feature Free’s flexible outsole and lightweight construction for extra comfort. Durability is ensured by a ventilating suede&mesh upper and a thick rubber sidewall, toe, and bumper.
In terms of board feel and traction, the shoes are boosted with a Phylon foam heel, rubber outsole with pods, and a herringbone pattern at midfoot&heel level. Available in gym red, blue lagoon, and dark grey, the Nike Free SB boasts reflective elements that stand out in low light.
