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

sb dunk melvins Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk High Melvins (2005)


The folks at Nike SB in charge of all the collaborations must’ve had a distinct taste in music; with names like J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr., Slayer, and ┬áThe Melvins in the mix, it’s clear what sort of tunes these guys rocked out to. In the Fall of 2005, Nike SB released a limited edition collaboration with 80′s band The Melvins in two different colorways – both featuring a mix of designs and graphics from the band’s previous album artwork. The macabre details like the skull-and-crossbones on the black and the chinese character for ‘blood’ on the white is a sure representation the band’s subject matter, which often used sludgy, slow-rock sounds that eventually inspired other Seattle-based rock bands like Nirvana and Soundgarden. A look at tonight’s Classics Revisited is just below, so give it a look and tell us which of the two you like better.

Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk High “T-19″ (2005)

nike sb dunk t 19 Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk High T 19 (2005)


Two of Nike Skateboarding’s Japanese riders were selected to color up two colorways of the Nike SB Dunk High – here’s a look back at the “T-19″ designed by Iwasaki Shingo; T-19 is a street skate team from Japan for which Shingo was the founder of, and today the team continues to put out skate decks while dabbling in collaborations from time to time. The Nike SB Dunk High ‘T-19′ is considered to be one of the cleanest Dunks ever, using a tonal Sport Royal upper with a perforated center panel and white-mesh tongue. An unoffical “Low” was released two years ago, pairing a royal blue upper with the same perforated mid-panel with a light Shy Pink color, but those were never popular as they came during the much-maligned second ‘thin tongue’ era of Nike SB Dunks. More of tonight’s Classic Revisited of the T-19 Dunks is just below.

Classics Revisited: De La Soul x Nike SB Dunk High (2005)

sb dunk de la high Classics Revisited: De La Soul x Nike SB Dunk High (2005)


A couple of weeks back we look at some of the best SB Dunk Lows from 2005, but that year was great for the Highs as well! We’ll kick things off with one of the wildest colorways ever – the “De La Soul”. Both the High and Low were inspired by the original artwork from the hip-hop group’s first “3 Feet High & Rising” album in 1989; the heel panel features the artwork with a vinyl-like material layered above the print. Finishing off the colorway was a unique mix of brown, orange, and green, with elephant print on the toe-box bringing back some of that ‘Supreme x SB Dunk’ flavor. These Highs are considered to be one of the best SB Dunk Highs of all-time and certainly deserve the lead role of this week’s Classics Revisited feature on ’05 releases.
