When it came time to build his signature shoe, Ishod Wair was all in from the start. Infused with elements taken from the iconic hoops shoes of the '90s, (did you know that basketball was Ishod's first love?) and built with all the durability you need to skate hard, the Nike SB Ishod Wair Premium walks the line between original style and modern skate innovation. This premium version has all the performance features of the original, now dressed up in velvety nubuck.
Nod to the '90s The breathable mesh panel is made from a flexible, molded plastic that nods to the look of basketball shoes from the '90s. The reverse Swoosh on the heel nods to the Nike Air Darwin and Ishod's first love, basketball. Nike React Performance A drop-in Nike React insole is made from a lightweight, durable foam that delivers a smooth, responsive ride and helps enhance boardfeel. New Cupsole The new design delivers the durability of a cupsole with the flexibility you need to reduce break-in time and maximize skate days. The skate-specific herringbone pattern on the bottom uses data to put grip where you need it the most. Midfoot strap hugs and supports your feet while you skate. Premium nubuck leather on the upper adds durability.
