However unfortunate, the first thing that comes to most people’s minds when hearing ‘New Jersey’ these days, is the cast of MTV’s massive hit reality show. That situation might change, cos Nike SB has something special planned for this summer that brings together some of the region’s key influences.
The Nike SB Dunk High NJ/USA appears to be a take-off on the iconic cover from Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 album, Born in the USA. This pair of SB Dunk Highs goes with a darker denim than what the Boss was wearing, but the striped rear panel clearly echoes that photo’s American flag background. So by using black, Nike SB managed to make a shoe that’s ‘patriotic’ without going the cheesy route. You know there’s going to be a ton more discussion and photos before the Quickstrike release that will be hitting NJskateshop at the very least, so stick with Sneaker News for the latest updates. via @harvington // NSB.org
