As most of the high-tech shoe wizardry from Nike has been traditionally devoted to their running and basketball lines, skateboarders are used to having to work with less. In the early days they were forced to appropriate basketball shoes to their liking a la the Dunk, long before any shoe company was catering to their tastes. While a fair amount innovations are going on in the skate sneaker world, check out the P-Rod V for the best recent example, there is still something to be said for the bare bones elements that skate shoes rely on. The Nike SB V-Rod keeps this in mind, opting for a shoe that focuses heavily on the vulcanized sole, an undeniable piece of skate shoe heritage. This nice colorway comes in a darker get up, with a bit of sport red on the midsole and under the tongue for some pop. Hit the jump for a detailed look at this edition of the Nike SB V-Rod, available now at Flatspot.
