The women’s Nike SB Bruin High, available in black and gray, drops Thursday, October 5.

Unlike its male counterparts, the SB Bruin High features a tapered heel and a shallower forefoot. This design allows for a more snug fit, which prevents unwanted movement.

The shoe was developed with insights from Nike SB pro female skateboarder Lacey Baker.

“The most important thing for me in footwear is a balance of durability, board feel, snugness, and support,” said Baker in a press release.

“When you put on the Bruin, it automatically feels perfect. The shape inside the shoe fits perfectly around my foot. The back of the shoe has a slight tilt that grips my heel, while the shoe is wider towards the front, which provides that balance of support and freedom.”

The Nike SB Bruin High will be available on and select Nike retailers.
