The Nike SB Zoom Bruin Pink Motel Premium SE Shoes are about to drop, so we thought we’d drop a little info on what the Pink Motel is. Just in case it wasn’t ringing any bells.
The Pink Motel is an iconic Southern California motel that was first introduced to the skateboard world in the Bones Brigade video, “The Search For Animal Chin.” The Motel itself is a rad spot, but it’s the pool that’s helped make cement (pun fully intended) itself into the skate community. The pool plays host to a bevy of fundraisers and contests, perhaps the most notable being the “The Pink Motel Pool Party,” an annual skateboard event. The Pink Motel was also host to the King of the Road 2015 Awards Show.
So there you have it, a briefing on the Pink Motel. As for the Zoom Bruin itself, the biggest story is its brilliant Prism Pink suede uppers with black leather swooshes and Nike embroidery on the heel overlay/mustache. The upper features extra ventilation for a more breathable overall shoe, and has minimal stitching to eliminate blowouts. Under your feet, the low-profile Zoom unit in the heel provides some cushion and comfort for more high-impact skating, while a flexible rubber outsole delivers boardfeel, traction, and durability. The Nike SB Zoom Bruin Pink Motel Premium SE Shoes will be live on CCS.com March 30.
