Nike SB has offered more vulcanized options in recent years that in its early days, the Blazer SB lineup now bolstered by models like the Zoom Bruin, Stefan Janoski, P-Rod 2.5 and V-Rod. Those last two belong to Paul Rodriguez’ signature line, which has recently further expanded by offering a vulc-soled take on the P-Rod 5 that also adds a LunarLon footbed for the best of both worlds with respect to boardfeel and cushioning.
