Nike Wake Edition 2009 available
Mavrk and Cush available in Europe

Nike 6.0 wake edition is online available in Europe. The Mavrk is a good choice with ankle protection. Kickflips to bloody ankel are history with them. The Cush is a classic wakeskate shoe like the Air Morgan last year. The Air Morgan Mid wake will be available in the next days. Check out the Nike online store.One comment at the end YOU DON'T NEED A WAKE EDITION SHOE for wakeskating. You can skate with every shoe you like. The Nike ID shoes with mesh are not with closed cell foam like the wake edition by Nike.
