Nyjah Huston has tapped graphic designer SAMBORGHINI to rework his signature shoe with Nike‘s skate-geared Nike SB sub-label: the SB Nyjah Free 2. Based in Seattle, SAMBORGHINI has created graphics for a wide-ranging lineup of music artists including Migos, Pop Smoke, Katy Perry and Selena Gomez. Here, he uses his signature bold fonts and striking graphics in tandem with a “Light Photo Blue” makeup that draws from an original colorway of Nike Sportswear‘s OG Zoom Spiridon to craft one of Huston’s most memorable signature sneakers yet.

Uppers mix a bright blue mesh base with sturdy black rubber overlays, designed to hold up through Huston’s demanding skate sessions. Silver midfoot Swooshes and silver piping that runs around the eyestays and collar add to the sleek style, white tongue tabs are stamped with Huston’s name and there’s even a hidden dash of hi-vis reflective flair on the eyestay anchors.

SAMBORGHINI’s artwork appears in three places: on the lateral heel (a red Nike SB text hit that contrasts with the forefoot’s red Swoosh), on the medial heel (where his name is spelled out in red) and on the insoles. It’s the last of these pieces which is the most notable, as when taken out of the shoes and put together the insoles show a snarling panther with red eyes, surrounded by lightning bolts and holding a silver Swoosh in its teeth. Down below, a flexible-yet-durable white Nike Free-inspired outsole rounds off the look.

The SAMBORGHINI-crafted Nike SB Nyjah Free 2 is available at international Nike webstores now, and will land at US SB retailers like The Berrics Canteen soon. It’s priced at $95 USD.
