Nike SB Nyjah Free 2: A skate shoe for all-day wear too
Combining performance and comfort in a single skate sneaker is what Nyjah 2 from Nike Skateboarding intends to deliver. Borrowing the flexibility of the Nike Free sole seen in some of the high-performing shoes for running and training, this sequel to the SB Nyjah Free is equipped for big tricks.
There’s no need to switch shoes after skating as the Nike SB Nyjah Free 2 is ready for chillin’ too. Its straightforward, retro look takes inspiration from the dynamic Air Zoom Spiridon, which makes it wearable with everyday clothes. Other variations that come in light tonal shades include the SB Nyjah Olympic and Summit White.
Updates to Nike Nyjah Huston’s signature shoe
Nyjah Huston’s streamlined and minimalistic kicks are among the best selling shoes from Nike SB along with the Stefan Janoski's and SB Dunks. SB Nyjah Free, Huston’s first Nike skate kick, was loved for its 360-degree rubber as it can handle grip tape abuse. The subsequent shoe, the Nike SB Nyjah Free II, comes with improvements for more trouble-free skateboarding. Below are some of its takeaways:
Lighter. A fraction of weight was slashed off from the shoe to accommodate the mesh fabric paneling.
Breathable. Warm air and moisture can easily circulate in and out of the shoe as it comes with lesser rubber on the upper.
Hassle-free. The bootie-styled fit on the earlier version gets replaced by a standard tongue and ghillie lacing system, which can be conveniently adjusted by pulling the laces.
