The goal for Leo Bakerís debut signature: Never compromise. Reflecting Nikeís commitment to serving athletes, the Nike SB React Leo answers Bakerís need for high-performance functionality and relentless creativity. Channeling iconic shoes from the Nike vaults and his favorite skate staples, the SB React Leo infuses modern tech, personal details and subtle couture-inspired touches into a new genderless SB silhouette. Featuring a buttery leather upper with suede overlays in high-wear areas, the SB React Leo brings a minimalist design approach to a classic mid-top construction for a broken-in feel session after session.

From pops of piping and ribbon heel pull tabs to the tonal ďLeoĒ monogram repeat pattern and custom insole art, the Nike SB React Leo embodies Leoís bold ethos with a refined approach. With classic innovation from fit to function, the React Leo reaches Leoís north star with triple-reinforced stitch details in the ollie area and toe, a hybrid vulcanized-cupsole construction, and responsive Nike React midsole for grip, board feel, and responsive impact cushioning.

ďI wanted the shoe to be utilitarian with elevated moments and fashion-y vibes but ultimately to be a great skate shoe,Ē says Leo. ďThe overlays with the toe cap create three layers, so it takes a long time to wear through. The triple stitching on the toe really helps with the durability. I wanted it to last long but skate well out of the box, so this new vulc-cup combo is perfect for that. Itís everything I could have ever dreamed of in a shoe. Iím really proud of it.Ē

The SB React Leo releases in select skate shops and nike.com September 15.
