Nike SB Dunk Low “Supa” Retro
There has been much speculation in recent years over when and if Nike SB would finally start retro-ing some of their classic Dunk designs. With the SB line noticeably losing some steam as of late, it looks like that time might finally be here. Some new images just popped up of a 2012 reproduction of the “Danny Supa” Dunk Low, one of the legendary members of the inaugural SB Dunk family back in 2002. Perhaps to honor the 10 year anniversary of the shoe and the SB line, this sample version indicates a Fall 2012 arrival, but there has been no official confirmation at this time, so we’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out if these will make it to retail. As you can see, the leather on the orange sections of the upper has been swapped for a more textured alternative, most likely as a way to easily differentiate between the OG and the Retro much like we’ve seen with minor material and detail variations on many Air Jordan Retro models. Get a better look after the jump and let us know if you’ll be making moves for these if they hit store shelves in the coming months. Photos: lacebag
UPDATE: It appears that we’ve been duped by a super thorough custom job by jwdanklefs that went so far as to even create a bogus sample tag for his Supa reanimation. Looks like it’s not quite time for SB Dunk Retros yet, but stay tuned, because you never know what the future will hold. Info via NK.
I hope sb's never retro only because when NIKE decides to do retros 98% of the time they are disappointing compared to the OG they don't use the same material or they leave out the detail we want from the OG like in the diamond turf not having Deion's numbers on the tongue and gold NIKE on the heel or like on the tech challenge 2 not having the speckles and fireball those were so disappointing to me i had em in 2nd grade i bought em when they retrod and still haven't wore em because i was so let down i waited years for them lol. HEY NIKE RETRO THE AIR FORCE V PLEASE and "JUST DO IT"RIGHT....... also the whole sorta glamor of sb's i think wouldn't be the same if the retro, the fact that most of the "grailish" ones were QS and or limited and that's what made them dope not just for the hype the best ones i think had the best or never seen before material used in the way sb did it. unless they keep them exact then it would be a good thing for the people that didn't have a chance to get them 1st time around now have a chance too, but for the people that just paid 250 and up for a pair of OG's recently will be a lil sh*tty about it..... I know i will lol
LMAO THATS FUNNY SN SAW THE PIC AND THOUGHT "OH WOW WERE GONNA BE THE FIRST TO POST THIS AND BREAK THIS WORLD WIDE WORTHY GREAT NEWS !!!! YEAHHH !!! " >< HAHA THEN LATER TO FIND OUT IT WAS A CUSTOM AND NOW THEY LOOK BAD LOL < THATS FUNNY LOL I BET WHO EVER POSTED THIS FEELS KINDA DUMB NOW LOL
Nike SB retros would be cool. It could be over done though, I think certain models should only be retroed. I would love to see a Tiffany retro at the same time I probably wouldn't be able to cop a pair because of all these "haters" who will talk shit but still camp to get it.
The color is different. Blue tab in back and a blue inside with the side seem on the tongue blue also
The game is OVER!! Nike continues to pay themselves time after time. Better start rocking New Balance.
Me personally I hope they dont retro SB's, But then i ask the question, How would they retro, shoes like the Tiff, or the Supremes, Heine's, Skunks or Pigeons? Would It bump up the value of the OG's? Would they make them in the same limited quantities? I dont think this would be a good idea, but let's see how this works out!
Nooo, very upset if this fallows through. How do you retro shoes like the Tiffs, & supremes, or skunks, liberty's etc etc.?
I say instead of jumping on Nike sb case lets wait it out and see what happens I'm copping these I like the style better than the og and those us that are younger guys (or older guys who slept) wouldn't want a pair of tiffs or mama bears for retail? So I think we should look for the good that could come out of this, loads of potential.
They just need new ideas and inspiration I honestly don't understand how you run out of ideas and designs when there is so much out there in the world.
I think it would be cool for them to get retried as long as they don't become like the new Jordans with loads of hype
I personally believe Nike sb shouldn't ever retro any of its past designs. That's what had everybody interested in them, their originality in concepts. Leave the retroes to Jordan Brand. I just believe that Nike as a company is not paying much attention to the Nike sb subcategory, they could come up with a million new concepts and designs for their quick strike category, but we only get 1 good sb every month or two. For the past 2 years sb has truly lost it's edge.
Chill naw b. I paid too much for my tiffs and feel good when I wear em and don't see a million kids with them on.
Funny part is your 100% right hahah. Me personally I don't mind as long as the quality is equal or better, but it will suck for those who drop 800$ plus on some OG ds lol
to retro tiffs (diamond) and supremes, it would have to go thru the brand i'd think. and skunks and libertys released to short ago to retro anyways (i assume you're talking about statue of libs). but i realize your statement was more of a "how could they?" of dissapointment
they started retro'ing jordans in 94, 7-9 after the OG model released. Its time for 1st-4th series SB retro's
Because we ask for so much and put pressure on a high stance, otherwise Nike needs new teams of design to scratch some new surfaces for design, you can't just run out of ideas it's impossible.
as long as they dont do wholescale retros of shoes like the city series or hemp pack, im cool with it. I'd LOVE to get some heineken retros, denim reese forbes too.
Hahaha my friend paid 800 dollars for the og supas.. Cant wait his face expression when he realize that these are comin out!!
I mentioned this a week ago and got the thumbs down, hate to say told you so butt...I better start selling some of these OGs I got before the value goes down due to some nasty retros releasing http://sneakernews.com/2012/06/14/nike-sb-spring-...
I live in a big city and have never seen anyone wearing Tiffs, Jedi's, Supa's, or even Skunks. A few more pairs won't hurt anyone but re-sellers.
At least he has the OGs! I cant wait to see your "face expression" (facial expression) when you see the shit quality of these.
still worth it, these aren't the same as the og's. would you say its worth it to cop 2001 black cements, with them retro'ing last year? Of course it is. but thats just me...
I saw that lmao, why you going to sell your pairs for? Wait like 40 years or something then sell them you will be suprised. Otherwise idk bro if you collect keep them they are originals, if you skate, skate in them give them some air.
That's just the way it is with retros..Why would somebody buy my used denims from 02 for close to a stack when they can grab a pair of brand new retros when they drop for less than a bean...In about two years, all my silver boxes will be worth about a quarter of what they're worth now
