The Nike SB “Rivals” Pack has so much flipping going on it’s hard to decide where to start.
Here we go.
Telling the tale of Nike’s two biggest stars on the ’90s hardwood through modernized skate, it’s the Orlando Magic versus the Chicago Bulls in a primetime matchup.
Taking the basketball-built Air Force 2 Low and turning it into a skate shoe, the Zoom Air assisted model reborn for the board channels Penny Hardaway’s famed Foamposite One. The inspo is dead on as a Dark Neon Royal shell sets the tone for a black mesh tongue, mini Swoosh forefoot branding and an icy outsole.
Across the court, the forever favored Nike SB Dunk High pulls from Michael Jordan’s beloved “Playoff” Air Jordan 11 for a mix of patent, leather and mesh that’s recongnizable on sight. A red translucent sole closes this homage in 72-10 fashion.
The Nike SB “Rivals” Pack releases on Wednesday, November 21st at select SB accounts worldwide including Premier.
