The FP stands for Future Primitive which describes these shoes very well. These will soon be part of Nike SB's 'Tech Family'. The kind people at this website were nice enough to take a few shots for us. Check em' out.



I do what I do, just go with it Patriots - Knicks - Islanders - Chelsea

cool story
"Future Primitive" is also the name of a classic old school skate video with the Bones Brigade (tony hawk, tommy guerrero, steve caballero)

Horrible. Nike just needs to stick the the classic shoes, and not be futuristic with their shoes. Skateboarding + moonboots = no

I shot those at the hotel room in Portland, haha.

There are some pros and cons to the Zoom FP. I was at the presentation meeting with Nike SB's top retailers in Beaverton. For the most part the guys were feeling the design... mostly due to the fact that they all skate and the silhouette provides for a nice skate shoe. The entire aesthetic is definitely not geared to appeal to the average sneaker head.

The kicks overall are super lightweight. The slip-on design feels quite comfy on the foot but needs a little bit of breaking in. They're definitely a bit pointier than I would like and most felt the price tag was a bit excessive at $104 USD.

Nike SB's approach to the shoe was to basically continue its new fuse technology, seen recently on the Hyperfuse basketball model. The entire sneaker is made from only 15 pieces, as opposed to the 45+ on the previous Tre AD. It really does feature a lot of thought and innovation, but in the end it felt like everyone was more satisfied with the skateability of the Zoom Stefan Janoski, including its nice price point, at $70 USD, and its overall classic look.

These are a nice evolution in the entire Tre roster, but only time will tell how successful they'll be.
