Our TOP 5 of the current best Nike SB shoes

Anyone who is confronted with the word "Nike SB" in 2021 must definitely think of the sub-label's most hyped silhouette at the moment. The Nike SB Dunk is and was one of the most popular skateboarding silhouettes among skateboarders worldwide, even without the hype.

But as I'm sure you all know, it's extremely difficult to almost impossible to finally get your hands on a pair of Nike's gorgeous shoes. Unfortunately, we all have to face the truth and opt for other models from the brand. But it's good to know that there is some heat that is moving under the radar of the hype.

From the ever-popular Nike SB Janoski models to modified versions called Nike SB Air Max Janoski / Janoski Max and cool models of the hip Nike SB Bruin, we're showing you some freshness for your feet today! Let's go!
