Following Paul Rodriguez's Skateboard Street Gold Medal in the XGames earlier today, Nike officially unveils the Paul Rodriguez VI, the groundbreaking skater's sixth signature shoe with the brand's skateboarding range. Since his first shoe in 2005, each sneaker in the P-Rod lineage has been tailor-made with the latest innovation and infused with insights from Paul himself to create the ultimate modern skateboarding shoe.
The P-Rod VI features Lunarlon cushioning, bracing skaters' feet from impact without sacrificing any of the direct connection with the board. Extra durable suede serves as the shoe's base, with TPU backing making for an upper that lasts, while the custom Diamond Flex grooves in the outsole enhance both traction and overall flexibility for unequaled skateboarding performance.
Retailing for $90, the Nike Paul Rodgriuez VI will release in multiple colorways. Available at select retailers and skate shops beginning July 1.
