Nike BRSB Blue Ribbon SB DH9227-100

Nike SB’s mix of past and present is generally about taking a classic silhouette and outfitting it with updated cushioning and materials for skate-ready wear. The BRSB, aka the Blue Ribbon SB, takes it a step further by completely changing the iconic design of the Cortez, the running shoe that many associate with Nike’s origins.

Already presented in a black and white colorway, this upcoming colorway is doused in the OG Cortez look, with varsity reds and royals accenting the white and veil upper. The toothed edges of the lace collar and toe band further cement the Cortez DNA, as does the signature pull pattern. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of the BRSB is the midsole; instead of a cosmetic stripe, Nike cut a hole in the sole to reveal the blue colored insole.

The Nike BRSB is expected to hit skateshops and Nike.com soon; see official images ahead and stay tuned for release updates.
