Hard shell, soft core! With the Nike SB Hyperfeel XT Collection, the Swoosh factory toughens up its golden trio, the Bruin and Janoski Hyperfeel as well as the Koston 3. Choose your Hyperfeel style at skatedeluxe and get ready for a rough winter season!

Never change a winning team! The Holy Trinity of the Nike SB Hyperfeel range is back once more with feeling. Well, it seems like that at the end of the year, Oregon’s skate shoe forge tops it all off. The Nike SB Hyperfeel XT Collection combines the advantages of the Hyperfeel generation with new, eXtra-tough features for an intense daily use.

Nike SB Stefan Janoski Hyperfeel XT

Did you like the first Jansoki Hyperfeel, but it blew out really fast? Then you should take a closer look at the new XT version. In addition to the shock-absorbing Lunarlon sockliner and the grippy sole for incredible boardfeel, the Nike SB Stefan Janoski Hyperfeel XT comes with a rubber toe cap. This gives you not only more grip when flicking off your board, but it’s also a real challenge for getting blowouts!

Nike SB Koston 3 Hyperfeel XT

Love it or hate it, the overall appearance of the Koston 3 is, well, debatable. However, Erik Koston’s feather-light footwear has proven to be a good high-performance skate shoe. Just scroll through our skatedeluxe Wear Test! Thanks to the breathable Flyknit collar as well as the midfoot Flywire cables, this shoe fits your foot perfectly and, thanks to its high cut, stabilizes your ankles during skate session. Additionally, the Nike Zoom Air at the heel helps to cushion every impact. The updated and a bit more elegant – considering the black upper – XT version also features a rubber toe cap for more durability.

Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel XT

Just like the Koston 3 Hyperfeel, the Nike SB Bruin Hyperfeel comes without a midsole, which gives the shoe a very nice boardfeel as well as way more flexibility than your regular skate shoe. Together with the Hypercrush footbed, which leads to an A+ damping each time you’re landing, and the new durable suede upper on the XT version, you can enjoy poor weather conditions, too.

To give you an even better look at the new Hyperfeel XT series, Nike SB sent their OGs Stefan Janoski, Eric Koston and Guy Mariano as well as their Euro riders Fernando Bramsmak and Youness Amrani for a couple of tests to Barcelona. Here’s what’s happened:
