Nike SB has had a quiet start to the year, but one clean pair of kicks they’ve released comes in the form of a rider edition. Ishod Wair rides for SB and was recently blessed with his own kicks, the black leather on black suede falling nicely behind the graphite swoosh. A solid pair of black sneaks that should last you through the year, these are currently available in store at Cal-Surf for $95; stop by if you like what you see.
Nike SB is planning to kick 2016 off with a bang, they recently announced the release of a new dunk low dubbed the “Bigfoot.” One look at the shoe proves the name is no fluke, brown suede sits atop a tan sole (not an actual gum sole) making for a safe, but clean colorway. Not too many concrete details regarding these, but word around town is these can be expected on shelves in mid-January.
Nike SB recently linked up with 2 Cincinnati skate shops on a pair of dunks commemorating Cinci’s World Series win in 1990. That year the final series came down to the Oakland A’s and the Reds, Cinci would go on to sweep Oak-town with ease serving as one of the most devastating World Series’ in recent (semi) history. Both kicks are suited in each teams colors with the high dressed in A’s green & yellow, while the low is dressed in Red’s colors with champion gold linings. History buffs will appreciate the American flags on each heel paying homage to the beginning of the Gulf War which coincided with the World Series.

A few weeks ago we posted leaked images of an upcoming collaboration between Nike SB and Michigan based skate shop Premier. Today, it appears the two have officially confirmed the release by offering up the official pictures and the kick’s release date.
