The most technologically advanced signature of the series, Paul Rodriguez's ninth signature model is "what happens when skateboarding and technology dap each other up." Joining the ranks of legendary Nike athletes who have at least nine signature sneakers, the newest installment combines Paul’s understated style with his forward-thinking approach to the sport. The flexibility provided by the Nike hexagonal Zoom Air units in the forefoot gives the low profile silhouette all the cushioning you'll need. 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 winner.

The Nike SB Paul Rodriguez 9 Elite will be available at select Nike SB retailers and online at nike.com/skateboarding beginning July 2.

In other SB news, Nike recently teamed up with Minneapolis’s Familia skate shop on a Dunk High Premium SB.
