2012’s been filled with ups and downs for Nike SB. News of the eventual merging of all the Action Sports product lines into one label could remove ‘SB’ for good (with the exception of the heritage models), and a lack of the ever-so-popular ‘4/20’ Dunk release had SB fans worried that the end of SB could come sooner than later. But looking back, it’s been a fairly strong line-up thus far; the ‘Nontourage’ and Premier ‘Petosky’ collaborations breathed some extra life into the Dunk, and the ‘Beer Bottle Pack’ Quickstrikes had us excited about the SB Dunk High for good reason. Not much more has been made about the Beer Bottle Pack after it released overseas (a true Quickstrike), but hopefuly the the Pack will round out to an even six (any suggestions of what international brews should finish off the set?). If you missed out on both pairs, these have just popped up for sale; we’d like to point out that these are not an official set, but you can cop both with ease right now by copping this size 9.5 set from wujekmisiek on eBay.
