A few weeks back, we previewed the upcoming Nike SB Huarache, which took the iconic silhouette from the Swoosh and applied it with modern day skate tech features and materials. Nike is at it again, and this time it could potentially change skate shoes forever, with the Nike Free SB.
Nike is taking the adaptive and flexible Free technology seen throughout majority of it's running sneakers, and is applying them to skate shoes. In the past we've seen the addition of Lunarlon and Zoom Air to current skate shoes from the Swoosh, so it was only a matter of time before they decided to bring the game changing outsole to their coveted skate line. The Nike Free SB takes the flexibility from the technology and brings it to the forefoot, using the flex grooves to offer optimal board control and feel. The upper of the shoe features a rugged suede exterior with durability and stability, and includes diamond cuts on the side to make the shoe lightweight.
Details are still emerging, but keep it locked for more information in the coming weeks as this could revolutionize Nike SB as we know it.
