Take a slab of wood slightly larger than the sole of your shoe, slap some metal rollerskate wheels on it and send kids off to die without any griptape. As history has proven out, this is not the best design for a skateboard, but one of the sport’s premiere historians has also proven it can be the inspiration for a dope Quickstrike release from Nike SB. The Made for Skate x Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Roller Derby’ is inspired by the primitive decks that started the skateboarding revolution, their retro style drawing praise from a variety of sneakerheads who haven’t seen many other references to what seems like a simpler time. These joints are slated to hit Nike SB retailers like Caliroots on October 15th as an in-store exclusive, so click through to see some crisp new images and avoid the inevitable rush by grabbing your pair early on eBay.

I'm passing on these but i'm going to give Nike a lot of props this time around. These shoes look like they came from the black or gold box era. Materials and design is great for this SB and i really hope Nike starts making more SB's like this come 2012.
