From one variation on a 2009 version of a 1985-born original to another, we move from the Air Jordan 1 in cleat form to a Nike SB Dunk that, by name alone, has already been done. The ‘Gucci’ Nike SB Dunk High dropped just under two years ago with the alternate nickname ‘RESN’ taken from a Girl Skateboarding rider’s graffiti tag. There’s a different kind of street-level art at play with these new ‘Gucci’ Dunk High and Low SBs, namely, a couple of custom jobs by N-SB forum member jwizvr6. He took a pair of Eric Koston’s ‘Thai Temple’ Highs from last summer and the Dark Charcoal Lows from a couple months later, and applied interlocking-G material on the side panels plus a couple color adjustments to fit the brand’s signature palette. The quality on these is seamless enough to have you thinking they came straight out the blue box like this; are they the best Nike SB Dunk customs we’ve profiled here on Sneaker News? Click on the jump so you can see more images and leave a comment to let us know where they rank amongst the year’s best custom designs.
