When talking about Nike SB, a subsidiary of Nike dedicated to skateboarding, there's a history enriched with groundbreaking designs and significant collaborations. Recently, one of the highlights has been the introduction of Leo Baker's Nike SB React Leo, which stands as a monumental moment in the sneaker world by being the first signature sneaker from a transgender athlete. The most recent buzz surrounds the upcoming release of the Michigan-inspired colorway, reminiscent of the iconic Dunk Low's Be True To Your School series.
The Nike SB React Leo Michigan harmoniously blends heritage with fresh design elements. The meticulously crafted upper consists of both suede and leather, with the suede segments showcasing a rich thunder blue on the mudguard, eyestays, and heel. This contrasts with the Saturn Gold, an evident nod to the iconic Michigan theme. Further traces of this vibrant yellow shade can be spotted on the tongue, magnified by the co-branded tag that brings together Leo Baker and Nike SB in unity. This gold detailing is also present on the piping of the pull tab, adding subtle elegance to the overall design. Completing the upper is a striking thunder blue Swoosh, creating a cohesive look. The sneaker features a midsole and outsole duo in classic white and black, ensuring comfort and style.
The Nike SB React Leo Michigan will release Spring 2024 through Nike and select SB retailers both online and in-store. Available in unisex sizing, the retail price is set at $95.
