Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel History

It is a common occurrence for a sneaker silhouette to undergo a crossover from one sport to another. In 1972, Nike Bruin was first released as a basketball silhouette. Not long after, it has undergone several revamps and became interchangeable between the court and the skate parks.

The iconic Nike Bruin first became popular as it was worn by one of the stars in the classic film “Back to the Future”.  The simple silhouette, full grain white leather upper, integrated zoom air units, autoclaved outsole and the Nike Swoosh in cobalt red helped this pair turn into an instant hit.

This iconic pair was re-launched as the NikeLab Bruin Leather and the Nike SB Bruin. The Bruin Leather bears the exact profile of the original except for the cupsole. The Swoosh was able to release various adaptations of the Bruin Leather using diverse materials and colorways.

In 2016, the Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel was released carrying the same profile of the classic Bruin. It bears the Hyperfeel Technology that can also be seen in the Nike SB Eric Koston 3. This Hyperfeel Technology is incorporated in the sole to deliver flexibility, better board feel and high impact protection.

Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel Style

The Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel still carries the iconic details of the classic SB Bruin model which gives the wearers nostalgic feel in a modern comfortable shoe. It is made of suede upper and TPU skin upper which are very durable. It has the iconic Nike Swoosh and Nike lettering on the heel tab.  The stylish low-profile design of the Bruin Hyperfeel makes it a suitable pair for casual days. Pair this with any jeans or short with your favorite shirt or polo while strolling or gliding through the streets as anything is possible with this trendy pair.

Fit & Sizing

The Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel gives its wearers optimum board feel and supreme cushioning through the drop-in insole. It also has a secured internal gusset which allows the users of the SB Bruin Hyperfeel to have a total control while skating. It has a lockdown lace-up closure system and mostly runs true to size. The Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel is available in medium width and exclusively offered in men’s sizes from 4 to 14 US.
