In a long line of classic Nike builds meeting new school releases, true inspiration starts from the originals. This is no better seen than in the Nike SB Zoom Air P-Rod 2 “Black Cement”. Released in 2007, these sneakers headlined the second release of Paul Rodriguez’s signature series. Designed and tested by the skater himself, the line saw much mass appeal as Rodriguez’s career was taking off into his prime. Drawing cues from both the Air Jordan 3 and Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Black Cement”, the P-Rod 2 took a new direction with its color and material placement, integrating its own designs within the kicks.

The Nike SB Zoom Air P-Rod 2 “Black Cement” brought a new take on icon look. The official color of the sneakers is Grey Haze and Black. Featured on the pair was a full leather upper with mixtures of Black and Grey Haze intertwined with elephant print seen on the toe, lace loops, and rear. With a full phylon midsole and Zoom Air cushioning built within the insole, comfort was kept in mind when looking for a smooth ride ready to take impact. Red is seen in the padded liner and parts of the outsole and tongue signature. Icy clear outsole pods can be seen on the bottom of kicks with a white midsole is set in place to offset the dark colors. Paying homage to a classic, as well as P-Rod’s respect for Michael Jordan, it’s now no surprise to see P-Rod line take on some of the most famous kicks.
