The closest we got to a St. Patrick’s Day Dunk SB was the Seagrass ‘Statue of Liberty’ edition last March, but this year we get two with strong Irish backgrounds. Following up on the more plainly executed ‘Guinness’ Highs is this new Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Black and Tan’, a gradient-equipped ode to the mixture of light and dark beers that so often contains the Irish stout in the later role. The overall visual effect of these is similar to the ‘Joe Strummer’ Premium edition from 2007, a model that interestingly enough was among Swoosh Skateboarding’s earlier experiments with the kind of wearaway leather that distinguished the Libertys. These just popped up as a Quickstrike release at Miami’s MIA Skateshop, so check out the new images and head out to your local Nike SB shop to get yours in time for next week’s festivities.
This is disgusting. The Black and Tans were a British army unit responsible for outrageous atrocities in Northern Ireland. Bringing these out with this name in associated with St. Patrick's Day is incredibly insensitive and offensive to all Irish people. Please to a quick search on the name.
