The sport of skateboarding has been making headlines this summer as one of the five sports to debut in the Tokyo Olympics—along with its association with some of the youngest competitors (and medalists) in the quadrennial event’s history. At the height of it all, the Nike SB line is looking to expand its roster of skate-ready styles by unveiling a summer-friendly, mango-colored Nyjah Free 2.
A signature shoe belonging to Team USA’s very own Nyjah Huston, the model sports a soft orange, lightweight mesh upper that allows wearers to keep their cool when skating in the summer heat. The tongue sees a vivid mango plush construction and features a teal “NYJAH”-branded strip. Ghillie loops on the tongue—a design cue borrowed from the 1997 Nike Spiridon—create a lace system that hugs the foot from bottom to top while also helping the laces last longer. The skate shoe is complete with a rubber outsole that contains deep grooves for a broken-in feel and traction.
Enjoy official images of the Nyjah Free 2 below, which will arrive at Nike.com in the coming months at a price of $95.
