sb dunk slam city Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk Low Slam City (2005)


Partnerships with skate-shops comprised the original and most popular collaborations of Nike SB’s first season (Supreme, Zoo York, etc.), and the ‘Slam City’ is no exception. Designed by Slam City Skates of the United Kingdom, this great releaseĀ  was widely popular for the quality materials and unique color-combination and details – namely the caricature of Jesus on the tongue and the map detail on the insole. Another overlooked note is that the more you skate in the Slam City Dunks, the colors change; the Swoosh has a funky material that changes with wear and tear, giving true skaters that distinct look from those who merely keep their kicks on ice. We’ll end this week’s Classics Revisited feature of 2005 SB Dunk Lows here, so let us know if you liked our selections and stay tuned for more next week!

rayguns Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk Low Raygun (2005)


One of the most popular SB Dunk releases of 2005 was the tribute to the Roswell Rayguns – the fictional semi-pro basketball team that was featured as part of Nike Basketball’s advertisement campaigns of 2005. It features the signature Yellow/Orange colors on the center and heel panels with the Rayguns logo embroidered on the heel. Aside from being one of the more coveted SB Dunk drops of the year, there are some interesting facts about the Rayguns that are often overlooked. For one, the Black pair was considered the ‘Home’ version and the White was referred to as the ‘Away’ (an unusual exception from what’s become accepted as Home and Away colors). Secondly, the Rayguns were one of the very few SB Dunk releases that released in Toddler sizes. And finally, the Rayguns were designed by custom sneaker extraordinaire Methamphibian, who would go on and create his own SB Dunk representing his SBTG label. More of tonight’s Classics Revisited is just ahead, so check out both colors and let us know if you have either one in your stash.

tiffany sb dunk Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk Low Tiffany (2005)


The landscape of Nike Skateboarding has changed quite a bit since it first opened up in 2002. Today, it’s the series of pro-models in the name of Koston, Janoski, Rodriguez that dominatesthe scene, but for the first four years SB’s existence, it was all about the SB Dunk. The Dunk experienced an easy transition into the skate scene because the Dunk was already a popular skate-shoe option in the 80′s and 90′s, but in the 2000′s the SB Dunk was the object of sever desire for sneaker collectors around the world. Artistic collaborations with Supreme, Pushead, Zoo York, and transformed the SB Dunk into a rehashed skate shoe to a legend and firestarter of the sneaker culture today, so we’ll focus this week on five notable SB Dunk Lows that paved the way.

Starting off, we’ll take a look at this August 2005 release of the Nike SB Dunk Low, designed by Nick Diamond of Diamond Supply Co. as part of the ‘Team Manager’ series. The Team Manager series included this SB Dunk as well the Zoom Team Edition, the Zoom FC, the Blazer, and another pair of Dunks (by Stussy). There’s no question that the pink-box Diamond Supply Co. design was the most coveted of the bunch, as it borrowed the iconic colors of Tiffany & Co. to create this luxurious pair – unquestionably one of the most popular SB Dunk Lows of all-time. More of this Classics Revisited below, so take a look and stay tuned for more SB Dunk Low goodness as the week rolls along.
