Sneaker News Top 30 Sneakers of 2011

December 29th, 2011 by / 40


#25 – NIKE SB DUNK LOW ‘SPACE JAM’

Both sneaker collaborations and the Nike SB Dunk existed before September 2002, but it was during that memorable month nearly a decade ago that Supreme freed the Air Jordan III’s legendary Elephant print from its cage and applied it to a couple of pairs that remain legendary to this day. Elsewhere in the Air Jordan Legacy-borrowing school of design, we’ve seen countless black, white and royal designs utilizing patent leather and nylon to approximate the look of the almighty Air Jordan XI Retro ‘Space Jam’, and so it was only a matter of time before these two forces came into concert. But unlike some previous ‘Space Jam’ tributes, Nike SB went all out and cut no corners in their appropriation of the iconic motif for their Dunk Low edition. Even with the relatively short distance from the

riot-enducing Air Jordan XI release back in 2009, the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Space Jam’ proved that sneakerheads were still hungry for this beloved look , as the model proved to be 2011′s hottest SB sneaker, even amidst some other strong Dunk offerings like the ‘Cheech & Chong,’ ‘Cigar City,’ ‘Reign in Blood’ and of course, the still M.I.A. elephant-covered ‘Entourage’ edition. The combination of the Air Jordan cache and the fact that they were absolutely spot-on with everything from the colors and materials down to those familiar corded laces made this a no-brainer for many in 2011, and the release confusion and delays only fanned the flames and sweetened the prize for those who were able to get a pair. Now that ‘Space Jams’ and ‘Cement’ have been thoroughly covered, we can only wonder what the next logical Air Jordan homage will be for the the Nike SB line.

My number 1 sneaker would have to be the wolf grey 5's fuck all that concord hype

Yeah
Yeah

Please don't put Concords as number 1, Concords deserve to be in the list but I feel as though they shouldn't even make the top 5, and remember Jordan Brand isn't the only brand that makes sneakers.
