Nike SB often revamps classic lifestyle silhouettes to serve modern-day skate purposes, and the latest result of this past-meets-present ethos is the SB Adversary. Drawing its name and much of its style from the old-school Nike Adversary — a lightweight tennis shoe conceptualized by Air Force 1 designer Bruce Kilgore in 1982 — the SB Adversary serves up a tennis-inspired look that’s more than ready for a skate session.

Lightweight and flexible, the skate-ified Adversary offers a low-slung mesh upper with suede overlays, a thick EVA foam midsole with embossed SB branding and a classic herringbone outsole. It’s debuted in four colorways thus far, the standout of which is “White/Pine Green,” a seeming nod to another heritage silhouette, the Killshot. There’s also a “Midnight Navy/University Red” that gives off Olympic Games vibes and a simple “White/Black.” Last but definitely not least, a “White/Photo Blue” style draws inspiration from Richard Mulder‘s SB Dunk Low “Mulder,” a shoe from the original “Colors By” series that helped launch SB in 2002.

All four colorways of the Nike SB Adversary are available now at Nike webstores globally, and will arrive in the US on June 1. The price is set at a highly palatable $80 USD.

Elsewhere, Jordan Brand has provided an official look at its upcoming Air Jordan 4 “Metallic Green.”
