While there’s still a gang of must have SB’s set to drop before the year’s end (with the Entourages at the top of that list) it’s never too soon to set your sights on the future. With that in mind, we have an extensive look at the Spring 2012 collection from Nike SB, ranging from Dunks to more functionally oriented skate shoes like the various Koston and P-Rod offerings. On the Dunk side of things Nike SB is dead set on carrying on with the strapless version of the Nike SB Mids, with the re-released ‘Grip Tape’ Nike SB Dunk Mids being perhaps the last time we’ll see that form of support on a pair of SB’s. Other releases in the dunk range include a familiar looking colorway in the Un-Tiffany’s, a flip on the highly sought after Tiffany SB’s from 2005. The other Dunk Low previewed here is something totally new, with a bone grey pebbled leather on the upper paired with a reptile green swoosh in faux-snakeskin. For the newer models we’ve got a look at a few P-Rod colorways as well as Janoski Mids and Koston 1’s. Take a full look at all these and more after the jump and let us know which ones you’ll be making room for in your spring rotation. Via n-sb.org
You dudes really can't make up your minds first SB isn't core enough now it's too core and plain. You want a story here's one every company is greedy if not they won't be in business long. stop crying and start wearing vans. damn I forgot they sell those in the mall too. OK start wearing element shoes you can't get more core than that, and you will most likely be the only kid rocking them so that's 2 birds with one stone. Nike is suppose to try and get total market share that's business 101 suckas
02-05 RIP NIKE SB these are garbage, not a single story....dunks in general, now, look ugly just because of the shape and toecap cut.....they really are out of ideas. nike=greedy company, who sold out and ruined a culture, but hey it's Nike and that's what they're best at; finding markets and exploiting them....a prime example is JB, which is also dead to me
they're gettin a little too generic. nike needs to chill out with the dunks releases or they'll become the new af1 (too many colorways/not enough inspiration). signatures looking good tho
Nothing got me saying wow but there were some nice ones. I just wish the mids still had the strap. They look so stupid now.
I'm gonna geek out here for a sec... But the highs on page 2, second from the bottom, remind me of Galactus' suit.
thank god I thought SB was COMPLETELY dead for a sec. these aren't AMAZING but they're pretty darn cool and I'd wear most of em. if these are just GRs hopefully the quickstrikes are great
These r just GR..maybe a couple of "below the line" in-store only releases...not a bad job imho we'll see QS
It's because of people like you that Nike continue to decrease their quality. Why would they make greatness if people buy shit. The first one is nice tho.
