Cop: The Nike SB Lunar Gato ‘Strike & Destroy’ Collection

By 03.05.14

Words By Retro Boogie

Last month the Nike SB Lunar Gato ‘Strike & Destroy’ Collection slowly started making its way to select SB accounts. Now fans of the shoe and the Copa Mundial can cop on the Nike site. The hybrid footy/skateboard shoe blends nicely together to either rock casually or beat the hell up. Instead of the now famous ‘Skate and Destroy’ mantra, the insole on these Gatos sports the new ‘Strike and Destroy’ label. Another nod to the beautiful game is the gum outsole that’s covered in a soccer ball pattern.

For those doubting the utility of the shoe, take a look at the toe cap. Instead of adding another panel for durability at the price of ball feel (pause?), there’s a grippy coating to protect against board decks and scrapes on the pavement.

The colorways are simple but the medial heel panel adds some flavor with a splashy pattern in each country’s flag color. Blue/red for France, red/white for England, Green/yellow for Brazil, and Black/orange for Holland. All are equally coppable. And even though the USMNT could have been repped, the pack is called ‘Strike & Destroy,’ not ‘Get Scored On & Lose.’ Don’t shoot the messenger.

Pick a color and cop at Nike.
