Nike SB’s longest-running signature athlete Paul Rodriguez introduces his ninth signature shoe, the Nike SB P-Rod 9 Elite. Two colour ways in black/gold and red/black will be available at select Nike SB retailers and online at nike.com/skateboarding beginning Jul. 2.
” Hexagonal zoom air is a revolution in crash landing. You want to fly down some stairs with the impending impact of 10 times your body mass pluss the have-you-lost-yo-damn-mind stares of innocent onlookers? With the Nike SB Paul Rodriguez 9 Elite, go right ahead. Rodriguez puts it in plain perspective: “We’re taking impact heavier than damn near any sport.”
” The flexibility provided by the Nike hexagonal Zoom Air units in the forefoot gives the low profile silhouette something to help keep you from counting callouses. It’s designed to keep the kick flip at the center of your concerns and shin splints out of mind. Add that to some foot-fastening Nike Flywire that keeps you locked-in, and supple suede uppers that keep the board flipping, and you’ve got yourself something that finally feels right. It’s time to get with it or get lost. “
