Mexican-American pro skater Paul Rodriguez has said that if he wasn’t a skater, he would be a boxer. PRod uses his love for the sport as inspiration for his upcoming Nike SB collab.
This Dunk High is dressed in a Mexican flag inspired color scheme. Red piping and a green lateral Swoosh play accents to a white leather upper. The boxing inspiration is seen in the black and gold tongue tag and championship belt lace lock. The insoles are also designed to look like PRod’s hands inside boxing gloves.
The Paul Rodriguez Mexican boxing inspired SB Dunk High is a QS release and is expected to drop on January 18th for a retail price of $125 USD. This will be the first SB release in the new QS striped box. Grab a detailed look below.
