The Nike SB Zoom Killshot 2 QS was created in collaboration with Hockey, the partner brand to world-famous FA Skateboards. The shoes feature Hockey branding across the back of the heel and the company’s logo on the sockliner.
Hockey’s choice of silhouette, the Killshot 2, has origins on the squash court (in fact, the name derives from a hard, swift shot that rolls off the ground, rendering it impossible for an opponent to pick the ball up off a bounce). The shoe was first released in the late ’70s and remained popular for court sports through the early ’80s. In the 2000s, it returned as a niche menswear favorite. This is the first time the Killshot 2 has been fitted for skateboarding.
The Nike SB Zoom Killshot 2 QS launches globally June 29 at select retailers.
