With the time tested vulcanized sole and a silhouette combining classic skate lines with modern precision, the Nike SB V-Rod is one of those shoes that could potentially remain in rotation into perpetuity   Perhaps Nike Skateboarding recognizes this, and their response is to dole out Vulc Rods at a moderate pace to facilitate a longterm sustainability.  In any case, this greyed-out V-Rod has the understated good looks you’ll come back to again and again, and it’s available right now at Flatspot.

Nike SB V-Rod – Team Red – Black

The last Nike SB Vulc Rod we gave an individual spotlight here on Sneaker News was the Deep Burgundy edition whose brown suede forefoot and golden branding resulted in a perfectly timed fall release.  This latest drop just goes to prove how important color selection really is, because all this pair did was opt for the more aggressive Team Red and black instead of brown, and now we’re looking at an entirely different product.  These have all the intensity of an Air Jordan Legacy favorite, but a low-cut silhouette and Zoom-cushioned vulcanized sole means these are more perfectly engineered for skateboarding than the AJ1s OG riders used to wear.  Click through to inspect a few additional angles and be on the lookout for this March 2012 release at Nike SB retailers like Flatspot.

Nike SB 2012 Preview – P-Rod VI & More

Mallgoing sneakerheads and those abreast of Nike’s machinations within the action sports market realize that the 6.0 division has seen a marked improvement in terms of design and customer acceptance in recent years, owing at least in part to their closer imitation of big brother Nike SB.  And with SBs now available more widely than ever before, it’s not entirely shocking to see some convergence in these forces at your local promenade, but this could still turn out to be some very significant news moving into 2012.

Catalog images confirm further crossover between Nike SB and 6.0, notable combinations including the upcoming Mavrk 3 and its Eric Koston 1-borrowed sole that’s a little bit more surprising than seeing the Zoom FC with the Future Primitive bottoms.  Also on the way soon is the LunarLon cushioned P-Rod 5 LR and the series next rendition, the Nike SB P-Rod 6.  Add to that rumors about the availability of the entire Nike SB line as it relates to traditional skate shops vs. mall retailers, and fans of Swoosh skate shoes have a curious new trajectory for the immediate future.  Click through to see more of what’s in store and let us know how you feel about the potential for all non Premium or Quickstrike releases to have a wider availability.  via N-SB

Nike SB V-Rod – Deep Burgundy

The lineup of Nike SB signature sneakers has been pushed further and further technology-wise in the last couple of years, with a range of styles picking up Lunar upgrades most recently. It’s nice to know that amidst all this, there is still room for more minimalist designs like the Nike SB V-Rod. This Paul Rodriguez approved pair gets its name of course from the straight-forward vulcanized sole that proves sometimes less is more. The latest colorway we’ve got a look at is this deep burgundy release, which opts for a smooth red velvet look up top paired with the clean white outsoles. Check out the full photos after the jump and hit up Concepts if you’ve gotta have these.

Nike SB V-Rod – Liberty Blue – Marine – Yellow Ochre

Nike SB’s goal in creating the V-Rod was to combine the aesthetics of Paul Rodriguez’ signature line with the long running tradition of vulc-soled plimsolls in the skateboarding world.  Needless to say, the blend was a great success, and now the Nike SB Vulc Rod has become one of Swoosh Skateboarding’s standby models for 2011.  This latest edition is cast in a colorway Paul himself might have seen at the Rose Bowl a mere half-hour from his hometown of Tarzana, CA, where the Michigan Wolverines would have worn something similar at the end of their best seasons.  The best part about this Liberty Blue shade of navy, though, is that it’s sufficiently neutral so as to avoid a clear ‘homer’ look, so you’ll be able to pair these with a variety of clothing options when you pick them up from a Nike SB shop like Flatspot.

The Nike SB V-Rod is one of the more unassuming silhouettes in the Nike SB repertoire, eschewing high-tech upgrades in favor of a classic vulcanized skate shoe. This sneaker has been picking up steam with recently with releases like the Black Elephant version and the upcoming colorway from the Nike Doernbecher Freestyle 2011 Collection, and we’re back with a black and green combo that just hit SB retailers. It’s not often we see the term “hyper” paired with green, but it makes sense on the Kermit colored shades here, which bring a tiny bit of spice to the otherwise black upper. Check out the full look after the jump and grab them now from spots like Primitive.
