Complex Magazine declared Todd Bratrud the top skateboard artist “right now” last December, and if anything, his profile has risen this year on the strength of two stellar collaborations with Nike SB.  Bratrud’s ‘Cheech and Chong’ Dunk High SB might very well go down as 2011′s most infamous sneaker and his work on the SPoT x Nike SB Dunk High proves this guy’s work is absolutely smokin’.  Bratud’s latest reprises the tear-away top layer rolled up on the Cheeches, this time along the side panel where you can already see the texture of a blunt skin.  Click through to see more of some of the latest Skatepark of TampaSB Dunk in quite some time and stick with Sneaker News for the US release date on this September drop.

Todd Bratrud x SPoT x Nike SB Dunk High ‘Cigar’

Though it might not be as obvious a connection as the mere 225 miles from Miami to Havana, Tampa, Florida does indeed have a well-established cigar scene.  The city has quite a few smoking bars and even cigar factories, so when Skatepark of Tampa wanted to follow up on 2008′s Dunk Mid SB ‘Moat’, they called upon a guy who clearly knows a thing or two about exhaling grey vapors.  Todd Bratrud was the artist behind the ‘Skunk’ and ‘Cheech and Chong’ Dunk High SBs (among several others), and his latest collaboration is on the SPoT x Nike SB Dunk High ‘Cigar’.  This Quickstrike release for September features some of the nicest suede and nubuck we’ve seen on a SB Dunk, the earthy shades descending into a black/grey mid/outsole that represents ashes.  The side panel on these tears away to reveal a tobacco-like texture just like the Cheech release from earlier this year; does the special packaging make this one even better?  Click through to see more angles, let us know if you plan to grab a pair of these and stick with Sneaker News for the Skatepark of Tampa Dunk High SB ‘Cigar’ release date.  via N-SB

Nike SB Dunk High ‘SPoT’ – Cigar Box Packaging

August 22nd, 2011 by | 13 comments

Plenty of skateshops have designed sneakers for Nike SB, but that number for skate parks is fewer and further between, just a few notable spots around the country ever getting a chance to contribute to a special release like the one pictured above.  Todd Bratrud’s latest Nike SB Dunk High is nicknamed ‘SPoT’ for its affiliation with Skatepark of Tampa, and to further their connection with Bratrud’s hobby of inhaling burning organic matter, this cigar-themed Dunk High SB will come in a flip-top similar to those you might see at a cashier’s stand.  They also have tearaway material on the upper like Bratrud’s ‘Cheech and Chong’ Dunks from earlier this year, though presumably more earthiness will emanate from the scuffs instead of green.  Click through to see more of the box and insole designs and stick with Sneaker News for the SPoT Dunk SB release date.  via N-SB

Todd Bratrud x SPoT x Nike SB Dunk High – Teaser

Todd Bratrud clearly has a thing for smokin’ Nike SB Dunk Highs, because not only did he craft the ‘Cheech and Chong’ edition that caused such a commotion this April, but also this new design for the Skatepark of Tampa. The Todd Bratrud x SPoT x Nike SB Dunk High ‘Cigar’ is vaguely similar to last year’s ‘Iron Man’ thanks to a red and gold dual-layered side panel Swoosh, but a series of brown shades ensures these come off more like tobacco than Tony Stark. Skate Park of Tampa is a well-respected icon of the skateboarding scene (and one of the best spots to buy your kicks), so click through for an additional shot of this upcoming collaboration and let us know what you think. Stick with Sneaker News for updates regarding a release because these are set to drop in September.
