The Nike SB Bruin skate shoes have been treated to a Hyperfeel upgrade for responsive support and premium traction. The impact-absorbing Hyper Cush insole combines with a snug-fitting tongue gusset to lock down the foot. A thin, flexible outsole offers precise board feel and grip. The classic suede upper now includes a Hyperscreen overlay along the toe and sides to enhance abrasion resistance and prevent blowouts. All this tech simply means that Nike put some serious R&D into these shoes to give you the best pair of Bruins to date.
