Flagged as the first Quickstrike release for Nike Skateboarding in 2012, the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Shrimp’ made some interesting waves among our SB fans when we first previewed it just two weeks ago. Besides the clear representation of the ‘shrimp on the barbie’ with the embroidered on the heel and the special tongue label, there isn’t much to be extrapolated from this funky release except for the fact that they are arriving at select Nike SB retailers. DQM in New York City just got in a very limited stock of these, so check with your local Nike SB purveyor for availability and let us know what you think of this interesting release.

The phrase ‘shrimp on the barbie’ is one thrown around to make reference to anything from ‘Down Under’, so perhaps this upcoming Quickstrike release of the Nike SB Dunk Low has some sort of Australian theme to it? Featuring a basic Black leather upper with a red swoosh, this Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Shrimp’ features a stitched icon of a ‘shrimp’ with a special tongue label of a grill – thus, the ‘shrimp on the barbie’ connection. The phrase itself originated from a series of Australian advertisements in the 80′s, with the signature phrase coming from the actor who would later be remembered as Crocodile Dundee. These SB Dunks also come with a pair of secondary laces that appear to be a light pink tint for further shrimp effect.
