When Nike revealed the BRSB earlier this year, we knew straight away that it was a future classic in the making. Inspired by the Oregon company's roots, the "BR" in the name actually stands for "Blue Ribbon," and the silhouette itself nods to the legendary Cortez which was introduced a whole 50 years ago. If you still have got a pair in your daily rotation, then perhaps the upcoming Nike BRSB "UCLA" will change your mind.
Painted in the University of California, Los Angeles' official school colors, this BRSB boasts a multi-material upper that will no doubt turn heads. The front portion is dressed in a buttery game royal suede, and as you go past the university gold Swoosh the upper swiftly switches to nylon. Deep Royal Blue hues feature on the serrated lacing system, and this is all fortified by a phantom mudguard that makes these ideal for both the city streets and the half pipe. Underfoot, the midsole is done up with a series of elegantly curves and grooves, and the heel portion is left clear for a classic-meets-contemporary vibe.
The Nike BRSB UCLA will release in Holiday 2022 in men's sizes for $90. Expected to drop at Nike and select retailers online and in physical locations, more colorways will also be coming within the next few months. Let us know what you think of this brand new skate silhouette, and for the latest and greatest sneaker and streetwear news and releases, make sure you keep it locked on our Twitter and Mobile App!
