Everybody Starts Small, Even P-Rod

Paul Rodriguez has a new shoe on Nike, 2012 X-Games gold around his neck, and his first Street League win under his belt, but he started out behind the grocery store just like everyone else.

Watch the full clip here where Paul takes you back to his hometown and the single-most influential spot of his whole career, where he learned everything he knows about impact, gaps and flip trick control.

“The Paul Rodriguez VI is the latest signature shoe in Nike Skateboarding’s collection. Since his first shoe in 2005, each sneaker in the Paul Rodriguez lineage has been tailormade with the latest innovation and infused with insights from Paul himself to create the ultimate modern skateboarding shoe.

The Paul Rodriguez VI contains the lightweight cushioning of Lunarlon that keeps skaters feet protected from impact without sacrificing any of the direct connection with the board. The shoe's upper has extremely durable suede with TPU backing making for an upper that lasts, while the custom Diamond Flex grooves in the outsole enhance both traction and overall flexibility for unequaled skateboarding performance.

The Nike Paul Rodriguez VI is sold in multiple colorways and is available at select retailers and skate shops now.”
