Nike SB Bruin High History
A sneaker crossing from one sport to another is not uncommon in the world of footwear. Take for instance the Nike Bruin, first introduced as a basketball kick in 1972 it eventually leaped the court fences over to the skate park.
The Bruin first experienced international fame when it was seen on the big screen through the cult-classic film "Back to the Future." Marty McFly was seen rocking a pair of White / Cobalt Red Nike Bruins, which helped the shoe catapult to success. Years later, the Swoosh brand decided to re-launch the shoe under two sub-labels: Nike SB Bruin and NikeLab Bruin Leather.
Nike's SB team revamped the iconic Bruin silhouette to feature skate-centric design elements and introduced it in various height constructions and materials. Skate-based Bruin models are officially named Nike SB Bruin, and one of the most celebrated releases of this model in recent times is called the Nike SB Bruin High. This shoe is the brand's first skate model thoroughly and specifically designed for women.
With a broad range of skate brands today and with the rise of female skateboarders one would think that there has been an exclusive-for-women skate shoe readily available in the market by now, but to many people's shock, there isn't one. Nike SB managed to pioneer this movement. With the help of Nike SB's female riders such as Lacey Baker, Sarah Meurle, Leticia Bufoni, and Josie Millard, the Nike SB Bruin High sneakers were created with a female-based construction to aid women skaters perform better.
The Nike SB Bruin High skateboarding shoes provide a slimmer, sculpted fit that helps eliminate foot movement inside the shoe. This fit is attained by incorporating a shallower forefoot and tapered heel design, as well as a shift to a Tri-star pattern on the insoles which provides flexibility.
The shoe is available in these following colorway options: Black / Dark Grey / White, Black / Gunsmoke, White / Vast Grey, Khaki / White, Thunder Blue / Summit White, Red Crush / White / Vast Grey, and Sequoia.
