Over the years, Nike SB has taken their ‘inspirations’ a bit further, moving beyond the visual aspect of colorways and making the proper applications to materials. The upcoming Nike SB Dunk High ‘Tauntaun’, inspired by the creature made famous by the Star Wars saga, utilizes a mix of high-texture materials, like a weather suede and a twill/canvas-like material for the toe-box and heel sectionals as well as the swoosh. The colorway itself is a crisp combination of grey tones that match the Tauntaun’s furry exterior, but don’t expect any superfluous detailing. We’ve got a detailed look at this upcoming November 2011 Quickstrike release so check out the gallery below and let us know what you think. via Dunkbar.

Nike SB Dunk High ‘Tauntaun’ – New Images

Arguably second only to the on-again/off-again saga that is the Entourage ‘Lights Out’ edition, the Nike SB Dunk pictured above has garnered quite a bit of attention since we previewed them in detail late last month.  The ’Tauntaun’ Dunk High SB was designed by Nike SB’s Shawn Bavaretto to resemble the t-rex-like Hoth beasts from Empire, but longtime Swoosh Skateboarding heads have remarked that they resemble Quasimoto’s Stones Throw 10th Anniversary F&F collaboration.  That seems even more accurate a comparison in light of the changes reflected by these latest images, a new colorblocking scheme leaving these feeling like the ice-coldest BTTYS design ever seen.  The texture of a denim or some similar material is apparent on the overlay with suede in a marbled finish below; is this new distribution better than the original images or do you wish they’d stuck with the samples?  Check them out in new images after the jump and expect these at select Nike SB retailers next month.  via N-SB

The whole Star Wars motif isn’t strictly an adidas thing. Arguably the greatest fictional saga in movie history has been emphatically used to inspire a number of apparel and footwear, like the entire Star Wars x adidas Originals collection and the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Jedi’ from years ago. For this November 2011, the Tauntaun – a fictional land beast that roamed the planet of Hoth – will be the focus of a Nike SB Dunk High; designed by Nike SB Product Line Manager Shawn Bavaretto, the Nike SB Dunk High ‘Tauntaun’ features a two-toned blue/grey upper colorway with textured materials. Again, these are slated for a November 2011 release, so check out a picture of the Tauntaun below to draw your own connections between beast and sneaker, and let us know what you think. via N-SB.
