Nike Snowboarding Zoom Ites Boot
Can you imagine a future where Nike’s snowboarding boots occupy the casual realm in the same way their other action sports offerings do? They might bit just a bit too bulky to ever get there, but that’s not to say that they don’t have the sort of slick releases to gain the attention of the sneakerhead crowd. Proving that once again is the new Nike Snowboarding Zoom Ites Boot, a pair whose debut colorway borrows the immortal ‘Ultramarine’ Nike Air 180. Click through for the first photos and look out for these and an additional black/yellow colorway on Nikestore.
I'm not sure why people are comparing these to Jeremy Scotts? His design was just a snowboard boot silhouette, not a functional snowboard boot. There is no way you would be able to wear these boots casually... they are only for snowboarding. I love the colorway, but aside from the aesthetics, they look to be very similar to the Kaijus.
...If this design were reconfigured down to the size of, let's say, a Timberland Boot they'd fly off the shelves.
