A growing number of young ladies have co-opted the 1950’s pin-up look in recent years, so you can think of this new release from Nike SB like dressing the hottest twenty-six year-old you know up to match one of those iconic Marilyn Monroe photos. The Made for Skate x Nike SB Dunk Low Premium ‘Roller Derby’ reminds us that skateboards haven’t always been precision-crafted 7-ply slide machines. In fact, judging by their likeness on the insoles of this Skateboard Museum co-branded Dunk SB, they haven’t even always been safe to stand atop, but the fact that upon its steel rollerskate wheels sat a wooden plank is reflected by the texturized red suede underlay. A cracked white leather overlay is a nice finishing touch to this truly ‘retro’ SB Dunk, and you can see more images below in advance of the Friday, October 14th release at select skateshops including Primitive, who will have these in-store.
You are right I'm the idiot that doesn't know what I'm talking about but I copped my shoes easily what about you fucking hype east bitch?
I don't have any problems at Black Sheep NC either. Helps to know the owner and buy more than just the hyped shoes. I use to cop shit every week, shirts, clothes, wathces, shades, hats, whatever. Not to mention, whenever I DJ or do any type of event, I wear the shop T-Shirt! It's called, showing love and love will be shown back. They don't care if you buy a shoe that is gonna be bought by someone regardless. But, when you bring them business and help promote their brand, that goes a long way. They don't work at Nike and they sell more than Nike's, so, your whole attitude is not valid. They do that same shit at every chain, Champs, FootLocker, House of Hoops, DTLR, so don't get mad that you don't have any pull. Obviously, you don't go to the shops enough for you to be known there! If I have 2 customers and 1 only comes around Christmas for the big release, but the other comes every month, even just to hang out some times, I"m gonna look out for him first. It's called customer loyalty... A little business sense goes a long way when collecting sneakers! As far as Nike stepping in, good luck with that. They are call 'Suggested Retail Prices' for a reason, they're not set in stone!! And at Black Sheep, they hold shoes for no one! Not even themselves... Good luck!
If the stores won't tell you information it is probably b/c they don't want to sell to a hypebeast that only comes around to buy and then probably resell a hyped shoe. I don't run into issues where I shop probably b/c I actually shop there and support the small business. You got nobody to blame but yourself.
i swear these fuck boys at these lil skate board stores be pissing me off, try calling to ask a fuckin simple question "when are you selling them" and they wana tell you all kinds of bs to get around from answering the damn question. I swear these skate board mufuckas is gonna make me walk up in the store and punch one of these fuck boys right in the face for playin games smfh word up
youre a fuckin idiot and have no clue what youre talking about go sit on your thumb and spin in a circle
that's because they get annoyed that a bunch of little posers like yourself are calling every 10 minutes about a SKATEBOARDing shoe when you don't even SKATEBOARD. go buy some bapestas and stick to your roots, poser.
I dont know what city you are located in but Im here in Los Angeles and thats exactly how they act here. For the space jam sb release, they were trying to give me some run around about how the price might go up the day of the release...Even active, which is suppose to be a major retailer was acting hella stupid, all of their managers were holding sizes 9-12 for their homies, nike should investigate how these retailers do business, especially how some spot rape you with the prices like trasport in eagle rock, brooklyn projects, Active, SOB in montebello, and especially legends board shop in downey, they act hella dumb and ignorant out there ...the only ones that kept it real was Undefeated, they charges $108 for them and werent acting stupid on the release day, big ups to them....
Fuck you you cant go cursing skaters when your gonna go buy a fucking skate shoe. The way one shop acts doesnt reflect the entire community.
i cop what i want loser. fuck you and fuck skateboarding lol, no i dont skate board but i stay GRINDING u feel me lol U MAD? , yep i dont skate board and i cop and rock sb's all day U MAD? i cop fresh kicks and i bet id smack you in your mouth clown #dismissed
dick what do u expect when everyone hypes up a shoe, if u dont want prices to go up the sneakerheads gotta keep their game on the dl and not be blowing up skateshops phones when a shoes gona come out. thats why they raise the prices cuz of all the hype everyone does! smh and also cuz all of the clientell trying to cop these shoes just come around when big drops like the spacejam sb's come out fool!
