The criteria of what sneakers get scrapped and what continue onto the next stage of production is a process that we’ll never get a true grasp of, but if the fans had any direct input on the matter, they’d clamor for a release of these samples. Featuring a teal/grey suede upper with a white swoosh and a gum outsole, this basic colorway evokes the simplistic nature of early-season Nike SB that made it such a huge success. Although these are dubbed by the seller as the ‘Futura 2′, there is no conclusive evidence that Futura, a NY-based street-artist who has had a hand in some of notable Nike Sportswear and SB releases of the past, had any involvement in these Nike SB’s. In fact, there isn’t much to call these similar to his original design from 2003. In any case, we’ve got a set of images for you below, so take a look and check out the auction from 5one6 on eBay.
