As promised when we showed you the previews newest Nike SB Team Rider, Eric Koston’s first sneaker in the form of a Dunk Low, today we bring you the first glimpse of Pro rider Omar Salazar’s first sneaker with the company. If you know Omar’s style then you can see this as a perfect sneaker for him. Whenever I watch Omar skate, I can’t help but think he has a style that screams Vans. He reminds me so much of Tony Trujillio with his speed and transition skills, and Tony is the perfect face for Vans. Omar’s shoe also reminds me heavily of Vans. This shoe has the body of a Half-Cab but with a few more updates. This shoe surprisingly does not have a vulcanized sole. I am used to seein Omar skate the Blazer High’s so I thought for sure he would be rocking a vulcanized sole for these bad boys. This shoe also has a pretty big and padded tongue, so this shoe is sure to be quite comfortable. I am always a fan of the minor touches and details that you find on sneakers, and I love that “Salazar” is written across the tongue of the shoe…much in the way you would see “Jordan.” It is about time this guy got his own sneaker, he has been ripping hard for Nike for a while now and I am super stoked for him. Look out for these to be released in March 2010. For now you can check out the shoe Omar has been known to skate in below through the following auctions on eBay, the Nike SB Blazer High.
