News and info Nike SB announced in March on Instagram this Kenny Jones, Salem High School graduate and Coast Guard member had won the competition. Jones’ beachy design was chosen by a panel of voters, who ranked each of the top five shoe designs.
Its design used the color scheme of the famous painting “The Great Wave off Kanagawa”, with different shades of blue to represent the water and a beige outsole for the sand. It also included the Oceanfront’s infamous “no curse” signs, a trident for King Neptune and musical symbols to honor the city’s musical legends.
Officials say the shoes should ship in two to five months. However, delivery time may vary due to COVID-19.
The contest is not affiliated with Nike or the popular skateboarding shoe Nike SB.
