Complex’s The 100 Best Nike SBs of All Time
Air Jordans are iconic and the Jumpman dominates the basketball scene. Air Force 1s are beloved in all corners of the Earth and have released in more colorways than any other shoe. With all respect to the most popular sneakers out there (Foamposites and Roshes have been huge in the 2010s), it was Nike SB that paved the way for the modern “sneakerhead” scene over the past decade-plus. From highly coveted limited editions to collaborations with influential artists (Jeff Staple’s 2005 ‘Pigeon’ Dunk Low SB a fine example of both), and some of the craziest themes and colorways of the 00s, SB led the way with a huge variety of highly collectible sneakers. Coming up with a list ranking them is a challenge because there have been so many standouts spread across models like the Dunk, Blazer and recent favorite Stefan Janoski (plus the list includes one that has yet to release). When you consider the top of the list is populated by names like Staple, Supreme and Diamond Supply SB’s lasting influence becomes more clear, so check out a sampling of The 100 Best Nike SBs of All Time below, let us know which are your personal favorites, then read through the full list over at Complex.
