The Nike Free Orbit II SP and a Quick Lesson on Osteoderms

The Nike Free Orbit II SP and a Quick Lesson on Osteoderms

Images of the Nike Free Orbit II SP recently surfaced, and besides teaching us all a lesson in leveling up our footwear to the heights of upper echelon, they also give us a quick lecture on what osteoderms are – massive knobs and plates of bone, commonly found in the skin of crocodiles, armadillos, and some lizards.ย  Essentially, that’s what these kicks look like they’re covered in, what with all the geometric textures laid over the whole of it.ย  The purpose of the osteoderms were to provide protection to these creatures from dangerous elements, directly mirroring the effect of the Nike Free Orbit II SP’s providing protection from playing yourself by rocking swagless sneakers.ย  Click through for more looks.

Reach loves the Lakers, breakfast, the sound of a Fender Rhodes, and rapping along word for word to Wu Tang's "Triumph." If you're looking for him, he's probably out getting chicken.
