Is Nike SB on their way to reclaiming their former glory? Their collaborative releases are turning heads again and in their in-line styles like the new Nike SB Dunk Low shown here have been just as on point. You’ll recall that this pair first popped up at the tail end of last year, a time when we were knee deep in Dunks featuring a similarly textured upper. Here the pebbled look gets comes in a stony tone, pairing up with the reptilian swoosh and varsity red accents for an almost Medusa look. Stare at the extra shots after the jump free of any fear of turning to stone and cop this Nike SB Dunk Low now from SPoT.

This shoe is pretty clean...i myself wont cop but it is a clean cop if you do. IMO, SB has fallen off a bit. Lately, the majority of the CW's that are coming out on their models are a bit too simple. Like all black...or 2 tone white with blue or the infamous black and teal/aqua/tiffany to which this cw has been done too much. I don't think they need to be iconic releases each and everytime but SB needs to get back to the inspiration days. They need that excitement to come back and I think doing packs/inspiration releases will give some of that back to them and the consumer. And I dont mean like south beach dunks or like a concord janoski mid or something. Forget using other shoes as inspiration...thats what customisers already do. They need to use other things that people can relate to or feel is fun. SB's are fairly consistent with materials so no complaints there....but someone needs to inject that creativeness back. haha if Nike's hiring, i'm putting up my hand! :)
SB Dunk releases have not been "on point" for a while now, this isn't much better. I'll give them credit for putting out nice Kostons and P-Rods since the slump started (actually that's probably why), but I wish they'd stop letting the interns design Dunks.
once again nike sb fails, this isnt jordan brand were not gana buy every shoe you release just cuz it says sb on it. if you want us to buy your shoes again go back to what was working, fatter tongues, softer suede and nubuck, better quality, nicer colorways.
wow i like these a lot. very unique and subtle; let the beasts buy jordans, ill stick with quality and style
I'm oddly feelin these lol.... I'm not gonna cop em or anything, but yeah. I wonder how they look withe the cream laces
These are pretty lame. But what I want to know, is what is up with those extra laces? You have a shoe made up of green, red and grey - and for some reason Nike SB puts beige extra laces with these? Who made that decision?
Spoken like a true hypebeast. So you buy every Jordan that releases? You must have a lot of junk in your collection then. Go back to copping your stupid jays, you moron.
Every shoe does not have to be an iconic release I mean damn, what happened to companies just releasing shoes because that's what they exist for. Either you like the shoe or you don't if you like it cop if you don't shut the fuck up. Hype beast ass nigga.
I feel you, dont agree with the beige laces but if you look closely at the shoe its got the beige stiching so Im guessing the laces will bring that out a lil. Just a guess but Ill stick with the green laces, these are simple but kinda fresh.
