When Nyjah Huston jumped ship from DC Shoes to Nike SB, we knew it was only a matter of time before five-time Street League champion got his own signature model. Now, it’s finally here — and it’s a game-changer. According to him, anyways.
It’s taken a while, but Huston says plenty of R&D went into the new Nike SB Nyjah.
'The most important thing to me was immediate break-in and longevity because I like to skate my shoes for a long time,” says Nyjah. “The front had to be thin and close to the foot to give you better connection to your foot and better connection to the board. You need your shoe to feel worn in but still maintain the right flick and feel right on your board.'
The SB Nyjah makes use of a new rubber material upper, as opposed to suede. According to Nyjah, the rubber is designed to break in immediately and takes longer to rip.
'Also, it’s super comfortable. I wanted it to be something that I also love to wear all the time,' he says.
That’s a lot of promise, but after seeing Nyjah’s new part from Til Death, we’re keen to lace these up for a kick-push ourselves.
You can put the Nike SB Nyjah to your own skate test now via Nike.com and other Nike SB retailers.
