Nyjah Huston assigned graphic designer SAMBORGHINI to rework on his signature shoe with Nike‘s skate-geared Nike SB sub-label: the SB Nyjah Free 2. The Seattle based designer, SAMBORGHINI in the past has created graphics for a wide-ranging lineup of music artists including Migos, Pop Smoke, Katy Perry and Selena Gomez. In case these sneakers he uses his signature bold fonts and striking graphics along with a “Light Photo Blue” makeup that draws inspiration from an original colorway of Nike Sportswear‘s OG Zoom Spiridon to craft one of Huston’s most memorable signature sneakers yet.
The uppers feature a bright blue mesh base with sturdy black rubber overlays, crafted specifically to hold up through Huston’s demanding skate sessions. The Silver midfoot Swooshes and silver piping running around the eyestays and collar add to the sleek style, while the white tongue tabs are engraved with Huston’s name and there’s even a hidden dash of hi-vis reflective flair on the eyestay anchors.
SAMBORGHINI’s 3 artworks that are featured are : a red Nike SB text contrasting with the forefoot’s red Swoosh , his name is spelled out in red on the lateral heel and on the medial heel respectively and another one on the insoles. The artwork with utmost significance is that on the insoles , as when they are taken out of the shoes and put together, the insoles form a snarling panther with red eyes, holding a silver Swoosh in its teeth and lightning bolts surrounding the graphics. Down below , a flexible-yet-durable white Nike Free-inspired outsole finish the look.
The SAMBORGHINI-crafted Nike SB Nyjah Free 2 is available to shop at international Nike webstores now, and will be soon available at US SB retailers like The Berrics Canteen. The kicks are priced at a retail of $95 USD.
