Two of Nike Skateboarding’s Japanese riders were selected to color up two colorways of the Nike SB Dunk High – here’s a look back at the “T-19” designed by Iwasaki Shingo; T-19 is a street skate team from Japan for which Shingo was the founder of, and today the team continues to put out skate decks while dabbling in collaborations from time to time. The Nike SB Dunk High ‘T-19’ is considered to be one of the cleanest Dunks ever, using a tonal Sport Royal upper with a perforated center panel and white-mesh tongue. An unoffical “Low” was released two years ago, pairing a royal blue upper with the same perforated mid-panel with a light Shy Pink color, but those were never popular as they came during the much-maligned second ‘thin tongue’ era of Nike SB Dunks. More of tonight’s Classic Revisited of the T-19 Dunks is just below.
