Professional skateboarder Paul Rodriguez Jr.*, or P-Rod for short, was preparing to launch his tenth signature shoe for Nike SB. To mark that occasion and as a nod to his high-fashion-dandy lifestyle, Nike designed a special patent leather colorway of the P-Rod X. Paul is a real cigar-daddy so we tucked some celebratory cigars in the kit as well. The gift was rounded out by a handwritten congrats note from The Black Mamba, Kobe Bryant.
We weren’t able to get our hands on the “church shoes” for our photo shoot, but you can see them in the delivery video which features some other notable faces from the Nike SB stable of athletes.
*The father of P-Rod is Paul Rodriguez Sr., stand-up comedy giant and star of the 1994 hit comedy, A Million to Juan.
