Hybrid lords Nike have combined two of their iconic brands together to create the Nike SB Free, which will be released in the new year. As expected, the incorporation of Free technology gives skaters a less restrictive feeling, allowing for a more natural skate experience, while maintaining the protection and support required of a traditional skate shoe. Plus it looks pretty sweet too, featuring a durable suede upper with zoned ventilation and a reinforced SB Free outsole.
Assisting the release is Nike SB skater Sean Malto, one of the first to skate in the Free and an obvious fan already. “To have that feeling of direct connection with the Nike SB Free and exactly what’s happening with my feet and board is what gives me the confidence to do new things and progress my skating.”
The Nike SB Free will be available at Nike stores and good Nike SB retailers on January 1.
