Nike SB’s affection towards beer has been one of its longest-running themes within its line of footwear, with the Dunk being the highest prized releases (the Heineken Low and the Newcastles being prime examples). For 2012, Nike SB is going for another round with the ‘Beer Bottle Pack’, which features the Nike SB Dunk High in two colorways – a Green/Black/Red that reprises the Heineken role, and a Brown/Red/Gum with a USA flag on the tongue that likely points to Budweiser, one of the most well-known domestics. Both are slated to be Quickstrike releases and will drop as soon as tomorrow at Euro retailer CaliRoots, so check with your local Nike SB account for a possible release and we’ll keep you updated if this Beer Bottle Pack actually rounds out to a six-pack!
Nike SB Dunk High
Boulder/Dark Cinder-White-Varsity Red (Budweiser)
Forest/Black-White-Varsity Red (Heineken)
a lot more could have been done with the concept for the budweisers its like theyre too lazy design a more detailed but clean sneaker smh
nike sb is so weak, its nothing special anymore, no logos, no designs...its jus regular dunks with a name on it smh
Heinekens should have Netherlands flag. but I like the Budweiser ones.. they need to make some Blue Moon dunks or some Red Stripe dunks! lol
How do you guys not get the reference? Budwiser comes in a BROWN bottle and all the writing is in Red. Its also made in St. Louis Misouri and is the quintisential american brew.
You also forgot to mention that there's white on the label, and that writing is in fact in navy. There is also a gold cap, so it's not that we don't get the reference, it's that the kids in the kitchen could have picked better detailing on the shoe like they did in the past i.e. the Heineken low, the Newcastle low, and (even) the Tecate high.
If I don't see the title, neither of them would ring me a bell for the beer, the brown one looks like a winter boot and the green one looks more like a Christmas shoe.
Wow, oh my. These are both really dope shoes. People are favor the green colorway of course. But all in all SB hasn't dissapointed me yet. They give their fans/customers what they want.
