Last week’s news of the upcoming Mavrk 3 sharing its sole with Eric Koston’s first Nike SB signature has the skate sneaker world buzzing with the possibility of an action sports mega-union between SB and Nike 6.0, and it was the sharp improvement in the latter in recent months that seems to add credence to this prediction. Nike Six is stronger than ever thanks to a series of new designs, and three of those just hit retailers around the country. We’ll star with the Nike 6.0 Zoom Le Shot LR, which is based on the classic Killshot court shoe SB is expected to soon offer among their own LunarLon-cushioned, vulc-soled range. They’re joined by a grey tumbled leather take on the Braata Mid 6.0, a model whose casual appeal is bested only by the all new Rizal Low Premium 6.0, a gumsoled chukka whose corded laces and lack of lining suggest they’re perfect for ‘lifestyle’ purposes. Click through and check out all three pairs in greater detail and pick yours up from a Nike 6.0 retailer like Extra Butter.

Little Nike 6.0 sure has grown up fast, rapidly emerging from the shadows of Nike SB with some dope releases that have helped the action sports line carve out its own lane. The Nike 6.0 Rizal Low Premium should definitely help them in that quest, a totally new model that is jam packed with choice materials. The shoe comes off looking a bit like the Nike 6.0 Brazen with its chukka-like design and similar swoosh hit, but the great leather and thick crepe sole of the Rizal Low helps it stand out in its own right. The leather on the these three just released colorways has a nice tumbled feel, and each comes in a darker shade that gives this sneaker a lifestyle look. And who can argue against a crepe sole, that thick squishy set up that has found its way onto a host of Nike models throughout the years. The Nike 6.0 Rizal Low Premium is definitely a big step in the right direction for Nike 6.0, and they are available now at Nikestore. Hit the jump to get an extensive look at all three colorways.
