NIKE SB DUNK LOW 2004 WEEK
Continuing our Retrospective of classic sneaker releases of the past is this focus on perhaps one of Nike SB’s best years in history. The 2004 set of releases marked a major change for SB, going from those clean darkened silver boxes to the far more eccentric light-pink version. In addition, the ‘fat tongue’ made a come-back after a few slimmer version were released. Kicking of 2004’s most prized SB Dunks is this ‘Jedi’ version inspired by the iconic Star Wars character. No official ties to the movie franchise were ever made (copyright issues), but the notion was clear, given the green/khaki/brown upper. The fat bright volt laces were a coveted accessory and point to the growth of shoe-lace manufactures recreating the popular thick shoelaces, and the Jedi itself was one of the more ‘counterfeited’ shoes out in the market. More of tonight’s Classics Revisited of the Jedi Dunks is right below, so take a look and stay tuned for a further exploration of the best of ’04 SB Dunks!
