Sneaker Spotlight: Stash x Nike SB Zoom Air P-Rod 1

Stash x Nike SB Zoom Air P-Rod 1 via Freshness

Now in its seventh version Paul Rodriguez’s Nike line has changed dramatically over the years. Now we have seen the model as a part of the main Nike lineup in both low and high versions, very different from the original Zoom Air P-Rod 1. When introduced the P-Rod was a more typical “skate” model with additional tech that Nike SB had to offer. To kick off the sneaker’s release in 2006 Nike SB called upon the help of some artists to collaborate on the model. Seen here is Stash’s version, very different from his signature “blue” theme seen on previous collabs.

For his design Stash strayed away from P-Rod’s home of Southern California and showed love to his city, New York. The cityscape was the main feature of the design seen on the Honey Wheat side panel. The toebox and quilted mudguard, a P-Rod signature feature, were hit in the shade of Pine Green while a bright Pimento Swoosh added a bright featue. The toebox featured artwork that matched with the special insoles added along with an image of P-Rod doing his work. Along with Futura, Stash’s work on the first P-Rod is still some of the most recognizable of the first rendition of the sneaker.
