Flagged as the first Quickstrike release for Nike Skateboarding in 2012, the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Shrimp’ made some interesting waves among our SB fans when we first previewed it just two weeks ago. Besides the clear representation of the ‘shrimp on the barbie’ with the embroidered on the heel and the special tongue label, there isn’t much to be extrapolated from this funky release except for the fact that they are arriving at select Nike SB retailers. DQM in New York City just got in a very limited stock of these, so check with your local Nike SB purveyor for availability and let us know what you think of this interesting release.
Who says simple = boring?! Regardless of what anyone has to say, if a shoe's done right, it's done right. THESE are done RIGHT. Not everyday you see a sb dunk low covered in legit premium leather...Add in a consistent theme, dope details, surefire colorway, distinct embroided icon, memorable nickname...Looks like a winner to me.. Oh! Cant forget extremely limited supplies! Could be the sleeper of the year, instant classics. These go hard and make it look easy.
I dont see why people are hating on these? its just a simple, clean colorway that you can rock with almost anything. So theres not much to hate anyway...to me it seems like if the person that comments first likes them, everyone that follows will like them to, if the person that comments first hates them, everyone that follows will hate them.. people are really getting what they like anymore, rather just getting whats really hyped. For me though, this is an EASY cop. I love the shoe.
i love a plain SB. the pink laces are kinda dope. but theres nothing else pink on the shoe?? i like them, but QS??? come on nike, not that deep.
I have them and the quality is on point, very nice leather. Can not confirm about the color change but I hope they do.
From what i have heard, the black fades to a dark brown, the more you wear them, similar to how a BBQ would change color with use.
dem dudes on dat show ragin cajuns show b wearin these while they collectin all dar shrimp down in da bayou lol

Nike getting people to crave a plain, black SB just b/c they sewed a shrimp on the back...good work!
