I saw this idea on Nixon watches this year. The Nixon Drab series had a coating that was meant to be chipped away with another colored paint underneath. Nike SB has a similar idea with the Statue of Liberty Dunk. It is a high dunk that is aqua colored and when you wear or skate the shoe, the top layer is removed. Underneath is a copper and silver paint exactly like New York’s own.

I like the idea of increased wear making the shoe look better. No one’s pair will look identical and will be based accordingly on skate stance and how often you ride with them. I have been impressed with Nike SB’s technology and design lately.
