NIKE SB DUNK HIGH 2004 WEEK

Finishing up our spotlight of 2004 SB Dunk Highs is one of the most popular non-collabos to have ever release – the ‘Sea Crystal’. Matched up with an equally enticing ‘Ice Green’ and completed with a black Swoosh, outsole, inner lining, and laces, the Sea Crystals were incredibly popular partially due to its full-suede build (shared by the likes of the ‘Hulk’, ‘Iron’, and ‘Maple’ releases of 2003). Although SB Dunks were never officially ‘Retroed’, the Sea Crystal re-surfaced in tonal Mid-form in 2009. Sea Crystals in your stash? Let us know after checking out the rest of tonight’s Classics Revisited below.

NIKE SB DUNK HIGH 2004 WEEK

Following up on yesterday’s design by Liam Sean Martin for Nike SB is this duet of Highs – one of the first ‘Packs’ ever explored by Nike. The superstitious concept of ‘Lucky’ and ‘Unlucky’ was front and center, with the lucky number 7 and the ominous 13 stitched on the outer toes of each respective pair. Just 777 pairs of the Gold/Green ‘Lucky’ and 1300 pairs of the ‘Unlucky’ were released at select Nike Skateboarding retailers worldwide and are one of the more hard-to-find SB Dunks ever released. Check out tonight’s Classics Revisited below and let us know which of the two do you have?

2004 nike sb dunk high tweed Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk High “Tweed” (2004)

NIKE SB DUNK HIGH 2004 WEEK

September of 2004 was kind of a rough month to get scheduled if you were a Nike SB Dunk release back in the day, pretty much everything dropping then overshadowed by the massive Nike SB Dunk High ‘UNKLE’. Despite the hardship of its timing, the Nike SB Dunk High ‘Tweed’ (colors courtesty of the prolific Liam Sean Martin) is very much a classic release. The sneaker utilized a mixture of warm tweed panels with a dark brown overlay. Also dropping in the same month was a Nike SB Dunk Low variation, the two separated a bit in their blocking. The Nike SB Dunk High ‘Tweed’ sported baroque brown on the side Swooshes where the Low went for mushroom. Click through to get a look at the Nike SB Dunk High ‘Tweed’ in this edition of Classics Revisited and let us know if you have this 2004 pair in your personal collection in the comments below.

NIKE SB DUNK HIGH 2004 WEEK

Some of the earlier Nike SB Dunk releases highlighted the regional specificity of the collaborator, like 2004′s Dunk High designed by HUF. With its roots in San Francisco, HUF founder Keith Hufnagel selected the signature Black/Orange uniform of the San Francisco Giants and added in an enticing tie-dye print on the upper. San Francisco’s Haight-Ashbury district is known as a focal point of the “hippie” movement, for which tie-dye has become strongly associated with. This limited edition release was a major hit in the San Francisco area and across the nation, and stands as one of the most coveted High-top releases of 2004 and in Nike SB’s legacy of Dunk releases. More of tonight’s Classics Revisited is just below, so take a look!

NIKE SB DUNK HIGH 2004 WEEK

Before the string of ‘Think Pink’ basketball kicks, the Aunt Pearls, or even the Polarized Pink Foamposites, these sick 2004 SB Dunk Highs made Pink a popular shade to rock on-feet. Of course, these aren’t just pink – these feature special artwork by NYC graffiti legend Futura, and are a collaborative release with U.N.K.L.E. of the MOWAX label based in the UK. No other SB Dunk features artwork as neck-breaking as this, and thanks to the Pink/Black/White colorway, the UNKLE SB Dunks might be the definitve SB Dunk of that area – crazy colorway, inspired by art, and unfortunately, extremely limited, Kick off Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk High 2004 Week with perhaps one of the best to ever release, and let us know if you own a pair!

2005 nike sb dunk high fog Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk High Fog (2005)

NIKE SB DUNK HIGH 2005 WEEK

Suede uppers and gum soles – an easy-as-pie formula for creating an exceptional pair of Dunks. Perhaps the quinessential SB Dunk of that variety is the 2005 release of the ‘Fog’, a simple yet effect SB Dunk High using a tonal black suede upper, a fog grey Swoosh and midsole, and the ubiquitous gum outsole. No snazzy story or skater collaboration, but a slick composition put together by Chris Reed of Nike Skateboarding. Good luck finding a pair in deadstock condition! Check below for this final installment of this week’s Classics Revisited and stay tuned for a fresh new category for next week.

Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk High “Be True” (2005)

2005 nike sb dunk high be true Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk High Be True (2005)

NIKE SB DUNK HIGH 2005 WEEK

Oddly enough, Dunks and skating go hand in hand (or foot on deck). As Stefan Janoski told us in our interview with him last month, Dunks and Air Jordan 1s were the go-to sneaker for skaters who weren’t sponsored by a brand or a shop, which is why Nike used the Dunk as a test-subject of sorts with the Pro B releases of the late 90′s. In Holiday of 2005, Nike Skateboarding paid homage to the 20th Anniversary of Nike Dunk by releasing the original seven installments of the Be True To Your School Series, which included Kentucky, Villanova, Michigan, UNLV, St. John’s, Iowa, and Syracuse (which Supreme sorta did with their 2003 collaboration). Instead of the original leather, these SB version were built with suede and came accompanied with special-edition hangtags. These were released sporadically in October, November, and December, and to this is considered by many of the older sneakerheads to be one of the greatest High-top SB Dunks ever released. A look at all seven is just below, so check out Classics Revisited and let us know which of the seven you own!
