Nike delivers nostalgia by transporting you back to 1972 in these Nike Cortez-inspired shoes. Built with skateboarding in mind, these Nike SB BRSB Skate Shoes are lightweight with rubber soles, and they provide an extra layer of protection in high-use areas like the ollie zone so you can enjoy longer seshes.
- Foam Midsole.
- Rubber Sole Wraps up and Over The Heel, Toe, and Sides.
- Synthetic Leather on The Toe and Canvas on The Midfoot.
Vulcanized - “Vulc” shoes are light, flexible and break in quickly. These don't provide as much foot protection as cupsoles, but they are preferred if you’re looking for good board feel in a shoe with less weight and bulk.
I went back to the product photos on Nike.com and if you look close enough you can see the glue issues there too.
