Nike and Poler. They’re at it again. Carrying on tradition with their third collab, the two brands are lacing connoisseurs of cool with a fresh line of streetwear. No half-stepping: time to skate into 2016 with style.
The latest collab features the everyday casual look Poler’s renowned for, combined with the skate-ready performance promised by Nike SB. Whether you skate every day or simply skate through the everyday, this is a line worth scoping.
Poler X Nike SB Dunk High Perhaps the crown jewel of the collection. From the moment you pull back the lid on that teal Nike SB box, like a treasure hunter with their hands on a prized chest, you’ll realize that these dreamy Dunks are worth every ducat.
First of all, these kicks are undeniably loud. Poler orange rolls over the toe, while gray and black layers reinforce the Waffle outsole. Speckles of orange blaze like embers, while Poler’s “furry camo” pattern graces the gray leather uppers. Metal eyelets, bold dual-tone laces and a Poler pyramid on the tongue top a synthetic body.
The cushy orange interior, reminiscent of a late-60s Cadillac, promises instant satisfaction to the wearer. In this case, looks are hardly deceiving. Slip them on and these Dunks earn a coveted spot in your closet or even as your everyday street shoes.
If you’re more concerned with on-board performance, you can’t go wrong with this now-classic Nike skate style. The Zoom All Court’s low profile, vulcanized rubber outsole and rubber toecap put longevity and performance first. From the streets to the park to the local watering hole, the All Courts get the job done—with a healthy dose of style to boot.
Nike windbreakers haven’t been this fresh since the neon-drenched 80s. Steering clear of the “bold” colorways of yesteryear, Poler’s 100% nylon Coaches Jacket looks more like a black map with jagged gray topographic lines. Snap buttons, a pronounced collar and an exclusive emblem ensure steeze remains on breezy days.
New favorite sweatshirt? Definitely a possibility in the Icon. Sporting a dotted crest made up of a sword, a snake and a bolt of lightning, this orange and black crew may as well be chainmail to the haters. Though certainly warm (78% cotton/ 22% polyester), this crew can handle long skate sessions in the streets and has flexible Raglan sleeves.
PSA: These collabs are limited and go fast. If this Poler fire catches your eye, best to act swiftly.
