The long awaited and much antisipated Nike SB Ishod Wair signature shoe has finally been released and in doing so becomes one of a very select few with their own pro Nike SB shoe, along with the likes of P-Rod, Nyjah Huston, Stefan Janoski, Eric Koston and Shane O'Neill. In recent years Ishod has had his name on several classic SB silhouettes, like the Dunk Low Pro Ishod Wair, Ishod Wair x Nike SB Orange Label Bruin ISO, Ishod Wair Nike SB Blazer Chukka and Nike SB Ishod Wair x Magnus Walker so he's no stranger to seeing his name on an SB shoe. And if there's anyone on a skateboad that deserves their own pro shoe it's Ishod, one of the most natural and stylish people on a skateboard but also one of the hardest working.
The New Jersey born skaters first love was basketball and it's clear to see from his first pro silhouette that plenty of inspiration for his shoe has come from the Air Jordan 1 and Air Jordan 4 & 5's, in addition to the backward Swoosh first seen back in 1994 with the Nike Air Darwin. Elsewhere there's new touches and modern materials like the vented frame in the mid-foot panel, and the Nike React Foam insole provides premium comfort and protection while the herringbone sole gives multi-directional grip to the tread. Just like the skater himself the Nike SB Ishod Wair walks the line between original style and modern skate innovation. Keep an eye out for more colour-ways cos there's a lot more to come, but in the meantime these Ishod Wair shoes in Light Olive/Light Olive/Varsity Red/Black are a perfect seasonal palette so move fast as they won't hang around for long.
