In continuing their relationship with New York’s finest Jeezy-fueled skate-centric site, Nike SB has again combined efforts with Quartersnacks to bring forth what will undoubtedly become a difficult shoe to get your hands on.
This time opting for a less established version of a popular model, the second collaboration between the two mainstays will come in the form of a Bruin Hyperfeel. Nike’s latest technology in skate-specific footwear seems to function nicely, and if anyone’s to be trusted on the matter, it’s QS.
Launching October 13 in what will certainly be a Quickstrike of the ridiculously limited variety, the Nike SB X Quartersnacks collab v2.0 contains minimal branding – a trendy but aesthetically appropriate choice – and will come in a colorway far less expected than version 1.0. Opting for the lighter end of the spectrum this time around, this Bruin Hyperfeel comes in what they call Birch/Space, with Pink/Black/White highlights and Sheen/Ivory rubber for the sole and wrap-around screening. A light pink coach’s jacket compliments the shoe, adding a touch of color we’re happy to see is making it’s way back.
We recently featured the Nike SB X Quartersnacks dunk in the number one spot for our “East Coast’s Most Significant Shoe Collabs” piece, and not without reason. As we put it then, “Snack has been overly diligent in keeping tabs on the various goings-on throughout the city/world, and skateboarding collectively thanks him”. For many of us, our only sports-related info comes from quotes and videos on QS’ Monday links, and most of the world wouldn’t know who a good portion of rippers out of NYC were if it weren’t for Snack’s repeated pushing and featuring.
Props to the continuation of the Quartersnacks legacy. The Nike SB X QS Bruin Hyperfeel and jacket will be available October 13 via Nike’s SNKRS site.
