Last month Nike showed off a ton of new footwear during the Olympic preview event in Paris. Among the new wares was the SB PS8, a technology-forward skate shoe that will debut this Summer with a limited-edition color scheme.

With the inclusion of skateboarding in the Olympics in 2020, Nike’s SB division has risen to new heights in their offerings, ramping up performance-based silhouettes over the last few years. In April, they showed off the Problem Solver sneaker, AKA the PS8, a new model jam-packed with the best tech Nike has to offer for performing at the highest level. This week, we got our first look at a special pair of the new shoe in an “Olympic” color scheme for this year’s Games in Paris. The shoe sports a white Flyknit base for the upper, adding black and white elephant print for the mudguards and heel counters. Black tongues and Swooshes darken the palette, while blue and burnt orange accents complete the look.


Nike SB’s debut of their new PS8 silhouette has not been announced for release yet, but is currently expected to release alongside the Olympic Games in July. The “Problem Solver” model features Flyknit, Zoom, and Flyplate technology, and will likely be available through SB accounts, though a price tag is currently unknown. Check out the early images below for a better look, and stay tuned to JustFreshKicks for more sneaker release news.
