Nike SB introduced the Bruin in grand fashion with its Supreme collaboration earlier this year. Like the Dunk and Blazer before it, the Nike SB Bruin was originally a basketball sneaker that gained favor with skaters because of its frequently-sueded uppers and grippy vulcanized soles. This particular pair is a very simple take on that formula, using a monochromatic charcoal grey on the suede and stitching. The elegant simplicity is enhanced by a perforated Swoosh outline, and they’re available from Caliroots.
