Nike SB Dunk High – Heaven’s Gate Sample
The Nike SB group of designers must have a tough time getting various shoes into retail doors, first it was the “Freddy Krueger” Dunk SB Low’s and now it’s this “Heaven’s Gate” Dunk SB High that have made their way to the sampling stage but not product shelf. This Dunk High Pro SB was inspired by “Heaven’s Gate”, a religious group that is best known for committing mass suicide in 1997, where 38 members were found dead all wearing the same exact outfits which happened to include a brand new pair of Nike shoes on each of the member’s feet. The Nike SB team decided to take various points of inspiration from the religious group and apply it to this Dunk High but it seems various powers to be at Nike may have shut the project down as the shoes never hit Nike SB retailers in the Fall 2008 season like they were supposed to. Thus for now you can only find these shoes at various consignment sneaker shops such as a Flight Club or of course there is always ebay.
