Some of the mystique around the SB Dunk boom of the first half of the decade was the limited availability, so it’s no surprise that some of the most money-fetching pairs are the ones that never actually released. The Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Loon’ was designed by Rob Sissi, the Midwest regional rep for Nike SB, with an inspiration coming from the loon – the state bird of Minnesota. However a release of the Loons never came into fruition and whatever sample pairs that were created floated around the hands of hardcore collectors – and today a pair demands close to $5,000. The news of a possible Quickstrike release of the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Loon’ should be a symphony to the ears to those who have yearned for this specific pair – and nails on a chalkboard to those who ponied up a load of cash for the sample pairs. The release is still a rumor at this point but stick with Sneaker News for more updates on this high-profile release, and let us know if you’d pick up a pair if these do in fact make it to production. via N-SB.
