Arguably second only to the on-again/off-again saga that is the Entourage ‘Lights Out’ edition, the Nike SB Dunk pictured above has garnered quite a bit of attention since we previewed them in detail late last month. The ‘Tauntaun’ Dunk High SB was designed by Nike SB’s Shawn Bavaretto to resemble the t-rex-like Hoth beasts from Empire, but longtime Swoosh Skateboarding heads have remarked that they resemble Quasimoto’s Stones Throw 10th Anniversary F&F collaboration. That seems even more accurate a comparison in light of the changes reflected by these latest images, a new colorblocking scheme leaving these feeling like the ice-coldest BTTYS design ever seen. The texture of a denim or some similar material is apparent on the overlay with suede in a marbled finish below; is this new distribution better than the original images or do you wish they’d stuck with the samples? Check them out in new images after the jump and expect these at select Nike SB retailers next month. via N-SB
Come on feet, and come on Nike release the Lord Quas' too. These Tauntans are dope also, I hope I can get a pair.
