Gino Iannucci’s Poets Create A New Nike SB Bruin

Legendary skater Gino Iannucci‘s Poets and Nike SB have joined forces to create a new SB Bruin collaboration. Inspired by Iannucci’s loved for skateboarding in new stylish silhouettes, the collaborative design features a simple design but adds just enough bold detailing to have a fresh new look.

Sleek and smooth black nubuck is used on the slim uppers, with white laces, a white tongue tag and an embroidered white Poets hit on the heel providing contrast. Exposed foam tongues proffer retro flair as well, but the shoe’s signature design detail arrives via a low-slung bright green Swoosh that swoops down onto the midsole. This embellishment calls to mind images of the dropped branding used on Virgil Abloh‘s popular Off-White x Nike Blazers from “The Ten.”

The Poets x Nike SB Bruin debuted on the Poets website earlier this week, but it’s now set to see a full retail release at stockists like the Berrics Canteen and Premier on January 4, with an extremely palatable MSRP of $80 USD.
