Nike’s newest addition to their skateboarding lineup is none other than Leo Baker, and their signature shoe is a blast from the past. Taking inspiration from Nike Dunk’s iconic Be True to Your School collection of the 80s, the SB Leo Baker pays homage to the legendary “Michigan” colorway.
This mid-top model is a visual treat with its layered aesthetic and versatile color blocking. The two-toned upper has been given a washed treatment, adding depth to the design. The overlays are crafted from supple suede, dipped in a vintage navy tint. The tongue construction and leather profile swooshes match the color palette perfectly. But it doesn’t stop there. The leather vamp, heel collar, and the quarter’s monogram detailing shine in a faint “Saturn Gold” treatment, illuminating the dark surroundings and accentuating the black contrasts of the tread and laces.
Sneakerheads and skate enthusiasts can look forward to the release of the Nike SB Leo Baker “Thunder Blue/Saturn Gold” in the coming weeks, priced at $95. While we wait, be sure to feast your eyes on the detailed imagery of this stunning pair.
In other exciting news from the Nike SB camp, mark your calendars for October 20th when the Dunk High “Sweet Tooth” drops, promising to satisfy your sneaker cravings.
