No matter which side of the strap debate you find yourself arguing, is there any doubt the Nike SB Dunk Mid hit its stride in 2011? Five years and one velcro enclosure after its debut, the model some considered the redheaded stepchild of the Dunk SB family has grown up to be a stunner like Christina Hendricks, this latest edition perhaps the most compelling yet thanks to its vague nod to the classic Supreme collaboration and its famed Elephant print. This pair’s grey overlay is actually a coarse tumbled leather that looks great in both color and textural contrast against a black suede base, red notes on the top and bottom finishing things off nicely. It’s tough to say whether it was these, the Brickhouse red joints or maybe even the return of the strapped Griptapes that’ll walk away as the year’s best, but one thing currently working in the above pictured pair’s favor is that you can get them right now from Nike SB spots like Premier.

I am not a skater. So I never used the straps on my mids but always loved the look and size of the of them. I say, Nike should bring back the straps on their SB mids. But offer a strapless mid for those that do not skate.
