Nike SB Introduces The Paul Rodriguez 9 Elite

Paul Rodriguez's signature shoe with Nike SB returns with this brand new Paul Rodriguez 9 Elite edition.

The shoe is the result of "what happens when skateboarding and technology dap each other up," says Nike, making it the most technologically advanced P-Rod design to date. It also marks a milestone for Rodriguez, as he joins an elite list of Nike athletes who have had at least nine signature silhouettes.

It gets an upgrade with Nike's hexagonal Zoom Air, while Flywire cables keep the foot locked in place. Other detailing includes Hyperfuse quarter panels, helping make the shoe lighter than ever, while suede applications to the toe box and heel provide a luxurious touch.

Lacing was also moved further back on the silhouette so that they can withstand the wear and tear of skating.

The Nike SB Paul Rodriguez 9 Elite drops in black and red colorways on at authorized stocklists and online.
