For Holiday 2011, the Nike SFB is remixed with a winter-friendly combination of leather and duck canvas. Inspired by Nike co-founder and University of Oregon Track & Field Coach Bill Bowerman’s time in the 10th Mountain Division of the US Army, the Nike Innovation Kitchen and Tobie Hatfield set out to honor their founding father with a modern athletic boot designed for first responders. Initially launched in 2009, the Nike Special Field Boot (SFB) was engineered for elite military personnel. The boot’s ultra lightweight, breathability and cushioning combine with sensible street appeal. The Holiday 2011 version drops this month in two colorways – medium olive/black and white/white.
