History of Nike SB Zoom Bruin
The Nike Bruin, the forefather of the shoe, was originally intended for basketball with its low-top upper and was released in 1972. As the years came by, several competitors and even Nike, created their own style of a basketball shoe with the Air Jordans as a testament. The Bruin was then less appreciated come after.
Fast forward to the late ’00s, Nike Skateboarding collaborates with Supreme and launched the Supreme x Nike SB Bruin. The vintage Bruin brand design was revamped with a plain suede upper with a swoosh logo on the side.
It has a vulcanized midsole and the herringbone gum outsole was also tweaked to provide more grip. Both shoes were also printed with words at the heel counter with “world” on the left shoe and “famous” on the right.
In late 2009, Nike Skateboarding released the Nike SB Zoom Bruin which included a Zoom Air midsole for better cushioning and durability when doing skateboard tricks. Since then, the shoe was made available in a variety of colorways which was mainly made from suede and the classic vulcanized midsole.
