We gave you a look at this Dunk Low SB sample last August, but at the time, the story behind them was still unclear. Now, the rumor is that this Dunk SB model was inspired by last summer’s superhero blockbuster, Iron Man, and was possibly intended for a summer release to coincide with the opening of the movie. Obviously, for whatever reasons, that never happened, but now we get a look at what could have been. Images of this sample version have recently emerged, and as you can see, while the kicks do sport Iron Man’s trademark red and gold, a healthy dose of black leather was also used on the upper to tone down the look some. As far as we know, there are no plans to ever release these, but with an Iron Man sequel currently in the works, Nike SB will certainly get a second chance to make them relevant, so we’ll let you know if they decide to drop the Iron Man Dunks after all.
