With the launch of the Nike SB Free, the skateboarding division of the Swoosh introduces Nike Free to its line of skate-centric footwear. Nike designers mined the extensive body of research covering Nike Free technology in other sports to create a shoe that meets the specific needs of skaters. The result is a sole that unlocks the foot and allows it to flex and move naturally, enabling better board feel, grip and balance. The durable suede upper, meanwhile, is made to fit like a supportive glove, featuring areas of zoned ventilation for breathability and all-day comfort. The introductory black and white colorway of the Nike SB Free is available December 24th via the Nike SB App and December 25th via Nike.com. The shoe launches December 26th through select Nike SB retailers, with additional colorways to come starting January 1st.
