Nike‘s skateboarding division has served plenty of daring pairs in recent weeks, but now the Swoosh looks to offer us something more subdued with the SB Nyjah Free 2 and SB Bruin React T appearing in “Dark Obsidian/Hyper Jade.”
Unlike other Nike colorways such as “University Red,” “Volt,” or “Royal Blue,” this combination of colors is seldom seen. However, it makes for pairs that become staples in your daily rotation — the dark blue base contrasted with pops of bright green-blue offers an easy-to-wear color scheme no matter what the style.
As a result, the colorway looks perfect on the Nike SB Nyjah Free 2 and SB Bruin React T. For the Spiridon-inspire Nyjah Free 2, “Dark Obsidian” has been used to cover the rubber wraparound bumper and the mesh underlay, while “Hyper Jade” highlights the foam sock liner and heel. An icy blue sole unit rounds out the pair.
Nike’s SB Bruin React T, a sneaker that combines SB heritage design with modern React foam cushioning, is even more subtle than the previous pair. “Dark Obsidian” encompasses its entire mesh and suede upper, and it even appears on the sole unit. “Hyper Jade” has been used as a contrast for the “NIKE”-branded heel tab.
Take a look at both of Nike’s latest “Dark Obsidian/Hyper Jade” pairs above. The SB Nyjah Free 2 and SB Bruin React T will release on September 1 for £84.95 GBP and £89.95 GBP, respectively (approx. $112 USD and $119 USD). Pick them both up from Nike’s website.
