The highly anticipated Lunar Gato from Nike SB is gearing up for a release in the next couple of months and we already have a peek into a collaboration for next year. This "Strike and Destroy" sample is an upcoming project with Thrasher illustrated by the famous "Skate and Destroy" branding on the sneakers insole. The sample above will drop around the same time as the "WC" or World Cup edition of the model, which will debut with 4 colors for the soccer pack.
The Gato is the follow up to the original Zoom FC and is backed by Alex Olson. Olson was supposed to be given another shoe by Nike to back (similar to how Koston backed the FP) but refused and suggested revamping the Gato for SB after skating it on several occasions.
This isn't the first time Nike SB has collaborated with Thrasher, you may remember the Blazer that was released in 2005 that paid homage to the magazine's first cover. Keep posted to NSB for the latest info and coverage on the Lunar Gato from Nike SB.
