Nike SB Bruin (Purple/Abyss & Black/White)


More inviting make-ups here from Nike SB. The Bruin is a refined silhouette and with the right materials, works so well. Two colour’s are on offer, with the choice of either black/white or purple/abyss.

The black/white colourway is discreet. An all suede upper with blue embroidered Nike SB detailing on the tongue/heel, and a vibrant gum grip on the outsole gives the shoe some animation. The canvas trim along the top of the outsole and extra support panel on the toe box makes the construction suitable for the skater’s looking for style and performance — A standard combination with Nike SB it seems.

If like you’re colour-ups a little more dramatic then look no further than the purple/abyss. A  luxurious pig suede makes up the main body of the upper with a leather swoosh and heel detailing. The off-white outsole gives the shoe a subtle finishing touch. This make-up is a winner.

These should be appeal to a wide audience of sneaker fans, not just the skate crew.

Both are available from Flatspot now.
