Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk Low “Homer” (2004)

homer sb dunk 2004 Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk Low Homer (2004)


If you missed out on these 2004 gems, chances are you probably muttered a ‘D’Oh’ to yourself here and there. Much like its fellow ’04 releases like the Jedi and Buck, these had no direct affiliations with the entity it was intended to commemorate, but these are universally referred to as the ‘Homer’ for donning the same colorway as Homer’s quarter-century long unchanging outfit. This silver-box Nike SB Dunk release arrived at accounts in March, donning a slimmed-down tongue that was used on a small handful of other SB Dunks of that era (the slim-tongue would return five years later to little praise). The ‘Homer’, of course, was somewhat followed up by the ‘Marge’ SB Dunk High in 2008 (also never an official collaboration with The Simpsons or FOX). Re-live these Dunk legends with tonight’s Classics Revisited below and stay tuned for more the rest of the week!

Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk Low “Hunter Forbes” (2004)

hunter forbes Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk Low Hunter Forbes (2004)


The earliest SB Dunks were designed by the members of the Nike skate team. Reese Forbes is one of the original members of that squad, but it’s his 2004 release of the ‘Hunter’ that is the most memorable of the bunch. He used a woodland camouflage print on the upper and combined it with a beige burlap material and a weave-stitched inner lining in orange to complete that big-game hunter appeal. The ‘Hunter Forbes’ was one of the more-sought after releases of that year, and last year’s Realtree Camo on the Mid helped SB fans recall that nearly decade-old release. More on this classic SB Dunk of 2004 is just below, so check out Classics Revisited below and let us know if you have these in your stash.

Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk Low “Jedi” (2004)

nike sb dunk jedi Classics Revisited: Nike SB Dunk Low Jedi (2004)


Continuing our Retrospective of classic sneaker releases of the past is this focus on perhaps one of Nike SB’s best years in history. The 2004 set of releases marked a major change for SB, going from those clean darkened silver boxes to the far more eccentric light-pink version. In addition, the ‘fat tongue’ made a come-back after a few slimmer version were released. Kicking of 2004′s most prized SB Dunks is this ‘Jedi’ version inspired by the iconic Star Wars character. No official ties to the movie franchise were ever made (copyright issues), but the notion was clear, given the green/khaki/brown upper. The fat bright volt laces were a coveted accessory and point to the growth of shoe-lace manufactures recreating the popular thick shoelaces, and the Jedi itself was one of the more ‘counterfeited’ shoes out in the market. More of tonight’s Classics Revisited of the Jedi Dunks is right below, so take a look and stay tuned for a further exploration of the best of ’04 SB Dunks!

air jordan iii white harbor blue boarder blue Classics Revisited: Air Jordan III Harbor Blue (2007)


Closing out our week-long Classics Revisited tribute to the most memorable womens Air Jordan Retro releases is this 2007 introduction of ‘Harbor Blue’. This colorway is considered to be one of the most popular women’s colorways due to the popular model and the easy unisex crossover of the colorway. It feature a tonal white leather upper with a classy elephant print of White and Harbor Blue, with the more vibrant Boarder Blue on the outsole and the interior lining of the tongue. Although no women-exclusive colorway of the Air Jordan III released during the 2011 celebration of the Air Jordan III, it appears that 2013 will feature some newer GS editions that could potentially lead to some new women’s colorways. More of the Air Jordan III ‘Harbor Blue’ after the jump, so check it out and stay tuned for another week of classic kicks on Monday!

wmns air jordan 8 retro white aqua Classics Revisited: Air Jordan VIII Aqua (2007)


In 2013, Jordan Brand will re-issue the original Air Jordan VIII ‘Aqua’ – but will the women’s version follow? This colorway was first introduced to store shelves in September of 2007, a fond remix of the fan-favorite Aqua, Dark Concord, and a light yellow on a White/Grey upper. This colorway dropped among a variety of new Air Jordan VIII colorways, which we can certainly expect when the Air Jordan VIII releases in a small but powerful cluster in the Summer 2013 season. The women’s version of the Air Jordan VIII ‘Aqua’ is considered to be one of the best women-specific releases ever, so let’s hope Jordan Brand is ready to follow up next year! Another volume of Air Jordan Womens in Classics Revisited is below, so check it out and let us know if you have these in your collection.

Classics Revisited: Air Jordan V “Shy Pink” (2006)

air jordan v shy pink Classics Revisited: Air Jordan V Shy Pink (2006)


Although today’s men’s footwear releases have shown no reservations when it comes to using pink, that light and fluffy of color was typically reserved for women’s shoes – like this 2006 release of the Air Jordan V. Dubbed the ‘Shy Pink’ edition, this Air Jordan V released in October 0f 2006 and marks the first-ever Air Jordan V made specifically for the ladies. Despite the gender designation, the Shy Pink V was a popular choice among men as the release followed the birth of the questionable era marked by Cam’ron’s affinity with pink. Following the Air Jordan V ‘Shy Pink’, a few other women’s Air Jordan V releases hit stores, like the ‘Sunset’ and two Air Jordan V Lows. More of tonight’s Classic Revisited after the jump so check out this ’06 Air Jordan classic and stay tuned for more from this week’s theme tomorrow!

Classics Revisited: Air Jordan IV “Linen” (2006)

jordan iv linen Classics Revisited: Air Jordan IV Linen (2006)


In 2006, Jordan Brand re-issued the beloved Air Jordan IV in a slew of colorways both new and old; the “old” (Military IV as well as the ‘Mars’) was outnumbered by the “new”, as we saw several LS or ‘Lifestyle’ colorways hit store shelves. Jordan Brand went ahead and created a womens exclusive colorway – this White/Boarder Blue-Light Sand version that was quickly given the ‘Linen’ colorway for its semblance to the ’05 Retro release of the Air Jordan X (which itself grabbed ‘Linen’ from that classic Air Force 1 Low colorway). These were limited to select Jordan Brand retailers and are considered to be one of the more underrated and overlooked Air Jordan Retros of the last decade. Check out tonight’s Classics Revisited after the jump and let us know if you’ve got this seldom-seen Retro in your rotation!
