Skate shoes are about to go to the next level. Coming right off the heels of the most technologically advanced skate shoe ever in the Lunar One Shot, the P-Rod 8 takes the tech we all know and love from the basketball world, and puts it into the most technologically innovative skate shoe of all-time. From the leaked image, we can already see that instead of using the traditional leather or suede upper, the P-Rod 8 instead utilizes a hyperfuse upper that has dynamic flywire in it,, which is first and a lunarlon cushioning system which has been common on the P-Rods. As a fan of skate shoes, I am very interested on how this traditional basketball tech will translate to a skate shoe, and also how will this tech effect the price of these, as the P-Rod is traditionally around $100 in price.
As of now we have no release date for these, but expect these to drop sometime during the summer. As always, stick with Collective Kicks for all your Nike Sb news and stories!
