Paul Rodriguez is something like the Michael Jordan of skateboarding, at least when it comes to annual-signature-sneaker status. They’re also both connected to extremely popular sub brands of the world’s leader in athletic footwear and apparel, so we’ve seen their paths cross before. Whether it’s the variety of Chicago-style P-Rod colorways or the Elephant print-equipped ‘Supreme’ P-Rod 2, it’s clear Paul’s sneaker tastes were shaped by the GOAT, and in a video by CCS depicting Rodriguez’ favorite possessions, a gem of a special edition sneaker popped up. Created for Jordan in his size 13, P-Rod tells the tale of how the kind folks at Nike had MJ sign the uni-blue Nike SB V-Rod and then delivered it to the young skater with Mike’s signature on the vulcanized sole. Seems like a pretty cool life and you can see the entire video for a look at what it’s like to be P-Rod, when you click on the jump below.
