The Nike SB P.Rod 9 R/R skate shoes offer a comfortable design with the look of a running shoe, for those post-skate hangs. The highly breathable upper body construction minimizes sweating and chafing, while the Lunarlon/Nike Free outsole cushions impacts.
Cupsole - Cupsoles are durable, well-cushioned and provide the best impact protection against hard landings. The sole consists of a single rubber layer, reinforced with glue then stitched to the upper. Cupsoles generally last longer than vulcanized soles, but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Nike Free in Forefoot - This technology promotes natural motion in the forefoot for the ultimate in comfort and flexibility.
Lunarlon Cushioning - Lunarlon cushioning features a soft, yet resilient foam core encased within a supportive foam carrier for lightweight, ultra-plush cushioning, springy response and support.
This innovative foam, invented at Nike and 30% lighter than traditional Phylon, allows the force of an impact to be more evenly distributed and helps reduce painful pressure points on your foot.
