Nike SB x Matriz

05.13.19

Located in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Plaza de la Matriz is proof that any spot can become a scene. In 2001, a group of locals banded together to start Matriz Skate Shop to provide the best product curation and skater-owned soul that fosters growth. With the title Matriz in tow, owners Cezar Gordo and Marcus Cida began producing skate videos centered around the smooth, polished stone plaza to get the burgeoning culture some much-needed shine.

Joining a lineup of new styles that commemorate ten years of the Nike SB Zoom Janoski, this remastered slip arrives in a collaborative colorway with the Brazilian skate shop. Both the dog and the Matriz name are inspired by the Porto Alegre plaza where SB team rider Luan Oliveira skated as a kid.
