Who should NOT buy it

This sneaker is not meant for you if you prefer a soft midsole to cradle your feet during hard landings. Check out more cushioned alternatives: Nike SB Dunk Low and Nike SB Nyjah Free 2

For instant comfort hunters, try other Nike SB shoes like the Nike SB Shane, as SB Force 58 needs a longer break-in time to enjoy cozy rides fully.

Nike SB Force 58: Skate well, look well

As an addition to the growing force of Nike SB models, the Swoosh introduces the Nike SB Force 58. This sneaker offers the newest innovation to provide skaters with more durable and flexible footwear on and off their skateboards.

This sneaker is dressed in suede and canvas on the upper for durability and style. It displays heritage basketball style all over as it closely resembles former hoop shoes, the Dunk Low and Air Jordan 1 Low. Nike added a few vents to keep the feet comfy. Its cupsole, meanwhile, boasts superb durability while providing impressive flexibility.

A strong force with a slim frame

The Nike SB Force 58 is very pleasing to look at and has a can't-be-missed Nike Dunk-inspired style. To the eye, this sneaker looks much like the Nike SB Dunk but with a slimmed-down profile.

It gets flexible after giving it a reasonable break-in time 

Most skate shoes typically stretch after a few hours of wear test. But this pair needs longer than usual break-ins to feel accustomed to its fit and enjoy natural and smoother steps, glides, and flips.

Grips the board

Its tri-star rubber outsole sticks to the board amazingly, skaters have mentioned.

Solid foothold

Even after breaking the laces, thrashers love how this sneaker kept their feet in place.

SB Force 58 lasts through months of frequent skateboarding 

Like most Nike SB sneakers, its cupsole and the upper held up pretty well after many uses. Its heel has extra thick canvas material that offers durability for consistent heel flicks.

It’s made with reinforced upper stitching that holds its shape long enough.

It does let you fly!

It’s lightweight and doesn’t give a dragging-down sensation.

Not thickly cushioned

Skate testers criticize its thin insole that provides "next to none" protection from impact. This kick also feels stiff at first, which can be rectified by inserting your preferred insole.

It doesn’t breathe as a Nyjah Free 2

The added inner reinforcement sacrifices the breathability of the shoe. It’s not as breathable as the Nyjah Free 2.
