A first look at a February Nike SB Dunk High Quickstrike release is upon us, inspired by black skateboarder Chuck Treese of the metal band McRad. Treese is the first black skateboarder to ever grace the cover of Thrasher magazine, which occurred in an issue in 1984 (noted by the ’84 embroidery on the outer toe of the shoe). The colorway is derived from the ‘Absence of Sanity’ album, with suede and twill materials adorning the upper. In addition, the Chuck Treese x Nike SB Dunk High’McRad’ is set to hit select Nike SB accounts in February – the observed month for Black History. More images below, so take a look and stay tuned to Sneaker News for more updates on this upcoming release.
Think I might skip over the Year of the snake Kobe's to get these. It's been too long since an SB release I could be excited for.
how many of yall actually get to cop these... me im from kentucky we aint got no boutiques just a jimmy jazz and a deveroes and they have some stuff but not all... Soo I'm trying to find some legit websites i can order from on release dates so I won't have to pay reseller prices ya feels me!
@DanniBsneakerfreak Call Premier Skate in Grand Rapids, MI, they take phone orders, and they're great people. I live in Michigan, but usually can't drive the hour and a half it takes to get there for a release, so I just call. They never gouge on the price, and they ship ridiculously fast. I ordered the Concepts "when pigs fly" sb release from them, and they were on my doorstep next day. They charged the lowest amount I saw online for them and don't beat you up for shipping either. I can't recommend those guys enough. (616) 742-2660Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with that shop, I just spend a lot of money with them, I've gone other places too, but Premier has top notch service.
@joel oliver thanks dude I really appreciate it. and your reply i will def give them a call. I missed out on the when pigs fly which was a sick release man. the nice ass suede the metalic swoosh and the nice ass pig lace locks great release. But I will def use this thank you dude!
