The Street Fighter Pack by Nike SB has been one of the most talked about collections we’ve seen from the skate brand in quite some time. It’s popularity comes as no huge surprise though as Capcom’s Street Fighter is something a lot of people have fond memories of playing throughout the 90’s. The three-sneaker pack includes character-inspired releases for Ryu, Chun Li and Akuma, the latter of which is honored through the high-cut silhouette of Paul Rodriguez’s new signature sneaker shown here, the Nike SB Zoom P-Rod IV Hi. When we first previewed the sneakers last month the pictures were limited and the release details were unknown. Now, thanks to Level6, a Michigan-based boutique who recently received supply of the sneakers, we’re able to provide you with a closer look at this Akuma-inspired P-Rod. Representing the d?gi which the character wears in the game, the Nike SB Zoom P-Rod IV Hi “Akuma” features a navy canvas base, a black leather Swoosh and red embroidery of the Chinese symbol for sky/heaven on the heel, something which appears on the back of Akuma’s outfit. Furthermore, a black and white drawing of Akuma is present on the insoles.
