Nike SB x Poler Collab

This month has seen the release of the much awaited collab between Nike SB and Poler Outdoor Stuff. While Nike SB and Poler might not seem like an obvious choice for bedfellows their collaboration merges the best of both with the popular shapes and cuts of Nike SB mixed with the earthy colours and detailing of Poler.

Released already and available instore and online here are a range of t-shirts, hats and a Nike SB Blazer.

The 5 Panels come in a Bone Grey and Black colourway and feature stitching of outdoor graphics of grass and plants along with Nike SB and Poler branding on the front.

The beanies have proved massively popular in their black and rust colourways since their release possible due to the warm chunky ribbed knit. They're also pretty stylish too with a round branding tab on the front and topped off with a large bobble pom.

To go with the beanies is the classic pockets tee in both a heather grey and a black colourways. The cotton tee's feature a chest pocket branded with both the Poler and Nike SB logo.

Finally we have the much hyped Nike SB x Poler Blazer. Nike SB's classic blazer shape in a bone colourway is mixed up with the same orange stitched outdoor graphics seen on the 5 Panel. For a premium feel the sneaker is finished off with a gum sole and plush suede uppers.

Still to come from the Nike SB x Poler collab is a handsome Bomber Jacket and an icon crew in two colourways.

The understated Icon Crews come in a heather grey and black colourway and are completed with a simple circular branding tab on the right side.

We are really looking forward to the arrival of the Nike SB x Poler Davis Bomber. This handsome jacket in a bomber shape is in a Ale Brown colourway with a darker collar and cuffs. Our favourite part has to be the jacket liner however which is the same outdoor graphic print seen on the Blazer and the 5 Panel. Look out for these when they land instore and online at Fat Buddha.
