Less than one percent of Nike’s endorsed athletes have received a signature shoe. Of that select group of athletes to receive a signature shoe, Paul Rodriguez is the first skater to join the ranks of the elite few who can claim a run of 10 Nike shoes. This summer, both Kevin Durant and Paul Rodriguez join those rarified ranks. While Durant recently celebrated in truly triumphant fashion (claiming his first title while wearing the KD10), Rodriguez has quietly maintained a dominant position as one of the world’s most accomplished skateboarders.
Designed to be both sophisticated and high performing, the Nike SB Paul Rodriguez Ten has a refined upper that allows for easy wear on and off board — perfect for Rodriguez’s lifestyle.
Here, Rodriguez shares some of the achievements, lessons and memories that have highlighted his time as a Nike athlete thus far. (Coincidentally, there are 10.)
