Do you count yourself among the sneakerheads seeking hidden gems each week or so at the local Nike outlet? You’ll occasionally find rare B-grades or a misplaced hit, but for the most part it’s a pair of $9.99 vintage runners here and a rainbow of tees for the same price there. These kicks pictured above feature a wide array of colours for sure, but they definitely belong in the ‘WTF heat’ category.
Sneaker News reader Josh Vanta found this insane Nike SB Dunk Low at his local Swoosh liquidator and was kind enough to let us marvel at the mystery right along with him. With a definite ‘Raygun’ look about them, these never-before-seen SBs add some purple hits to the nubuck-on-leather upper. While the colourway is intriguing, we’re even more fascinated by how photos of these never leaked, how far along the sampling process they were nixed, and how they made it out to one Nike Factory Store instead of the ‘bay. Thanks, Josh V.!
