Starbucks has been pushing their new Skinny Mocha of late, and while the new Nike SB release pictured above doesn’t carry any direct coffee influence, it does indeed represent a slimmed down take on a classic SB style. This new Nike SB Zoom Bruin has an undeniable ‘Mocha’ look about it, a lighter-on-darker brown blocking pattern that worked so well on a couple of mid-’00s Dunk Low SBs. They’re more like the ‘Mocha II/Tweed’ for their use of a suede upper, but lean back to the 2004 original by adding a dark foxing band that resembles the Dunk’s outsole. These might not make for the kind of obvious recognition as the ‘Tiffany’ colorway, but it’s quite the versatile release and available now at CNCPTS.
