Like sneakers? Yep. Like boots? Yep. Like SneakerBoots? Uhhhh... What?
So Nike are about to release the SneakerBoot upon Australia; a hi-top shoe with all the sensibilities of the lightweight, low-top kicks we're all used to seeing on our feet. They've taken two of their most popular models, the Air Max 90 and Free Run, given them an ankle lift, tweaked the design a bit and pow, SneakerBoot. If you're like us and live in your Free Runs, then these will most definitely be an excellent addition to the collection.
You'll be able to get your hybrid on 1 December at selected Nike stockists around the country.

Lurking deep within the steel and asphalt jungle of Los Angeles, live the rare and prized pro skaters. To witness these majestic creatures in their natural habitat is a highly sought-after experience, one that requires the guidance of a true professional. Enter Dick McNichol and Nike SB's Skate Safari Tour
Dick and his giant red bus are taking punters on a specially designed tour of LA's hottest skate spots with the ultimate goal of catching local cube gleamers like P-Rod AKA Paul Rodriguez live in action. Why? Coz P-Rod's got his own skate shoe, the Paul Rodriguez 7, and it's time to celebrate this momentus occasion.
Who's Dick? Dunno. Is this real? Dunno. We don't live in LA, but we hope it is. Watch the video and you'll understand why we hope a dingus like Dick McNichol genuinely does ride a red double-decker bus around LA with a megaphone hanging out of his mouth.
