Ishod Wair and Nike SB get together to make this astoundingly comfortable skate shoe featuring a new cupsole design for the perfect blend between lasting durability and that nice, flexible, broken in feel. With a nod in the direction of '90s basketball footwear, these fresh kicks offer a classic look that expertly incorporates Ishod's love of pool with billiards printed on the insoles and outer colors that closely resemble the vibrancy of his personal table.
Primary Upper Materials
Nike React Insole
Cupsole - Durable and shock-absorbing to provide the best impact protection against hard landings. Cupsoles generally last longer than a vulcanized sole but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Nike React Insole - Nike's React technology combines thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) and Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) to achieve a foam that is both soft and durable, thus providing a fluid and receptive ride.
I had these shoes for three sessions before they were absolutely demolished. Worst skate shoe I have ever bought in my life. These are fashion shoes, not skate shoes.

Nike SB Ishod Wair Skate Shoes
this shoe is a nike dunk & janoski mixed with some basketball technology..at least that’s what i see..i’m not really a fan of cup soles because i can’t feel the board right away.. i don’t like that pillowy cushiony feeling some ppl do i like how GT blazer & blazer mids skate but they don’t last..i go thru the blazer mids in 2 weeks..i bought the black & grey ones and skated them for 2 days & was disappointed because i had to reconfigure how i do my flip tricks..after a month went by i went back to the shoe because my heels were hurting from blazer mids..i learned to appreciate this shoe & the time it took to create it..i started skating them everyday & they still look brand new & that’s something i can appreciate because of the price of this shoe..once i broke them in i began to feel the board much better & tweaked a few things & now i’m planning on getting another pair ??
I really enjoyed skating these. I also was surprised to have them arrive earlier than I anticipated which I liked. The shoes were great to wear and great to skate. Thanks to Tactics for being the best!
Shoes came quickly with no issues. The packaging was very nice and secure which I’m always worried about these days, so overall I was super happy. I’ll be shopping here again in the future. I’m just glad I could get a pair of these.
