Nike SB Dunk High “Red Packet”
Those who celebrate Chinese New Year know that the little red packets are a sign of immediate good fortune. These envelopes, which represent a traditional Chinese New Year practice of spreading good luck through money offerings, are the focus of this year’s “Chinese New Year” interpretation by Nike SB. The Dunk High model features a rich, all-red upper with powerful hits of gold on the Swoosh, inner lining, the medallion piece on the laces, and on the glittered translucent outsole, completing a sure must-have sneaker release for the Spring season. A release date hasn’t been set, but you can guess that these will be around right around the Chinese New Year, which falls in early February. A detailed gallery awaits you below so take a look at the Nike SB Dunk High “Red Packet” and stay tuned to our Sneaker Release Dates page for the latest.
Seen these today at Blacksheep skate shop, one of the guys let me see them, they don't release instill next weekend. These pictures don't do it justice, the quality and feel to the shoe is amazing. The dopes thing about the shoe is the second pair of laces their crazy.
@sneakernews hope this kind of creating continues with the rest of the 2014 sb line.Because lets be real sb hasnt been good since da pinkbox
@foodieyu I know right!
these slick fly but they remind me of the moneycat sbs only part i like is the gold coin at the end of the laces, hope packaging is sick and it probably will be the only reason to cop the shoe
@ChicGeek524 love the soles with the gold flecks. Very cool :). Xx
I saw these pictures of this dunk floating last year around November, I did not really expect them to be a special QS. I saw them as a GR along with the other dunks that became GRs so far this year and I was pretty excited because this was a pair I was looking forward coming later this year, but fuck if this pair becomes limited might as well give in because this shoe is going to be a tough one to cop now thanks to Nike for adding the nickname to this shoe. Now collectors and resellers are going to be all over this and keep it in the closet, fuck I wanna wear them and skate in them, not add dust to them.
This shoe looks hella more quality than almost all the Jordan releases this year, on par with those Jordan 1 Mid "black suede" dropping soon. And when I said "more quality than almost all the Jordan releases this year", that goes for any J that we know thats coming out and for the ones we don't of yet. It would be nice if these drop on the same day of another major Jordan release or at the same time the "Tiffany High" come out. But that's highly unlikely....
@sneakernews I need these bad boys
@BillyRazzoR I Dub thee "Red October Dunks"
@BillyRazzoR red packet or ang pao (or an-pao i'm not sure) is an envelope traditionally given on Chinese New Year. So it's still right
@lemonadele31 Awesome aren't they? What's the betting they all end up with resellers? I'll probs ask for your help trying to get 'em x
