While diffcult for hardcore enthusiasts to admit, Nike SB has clearly lost its luster over the last few years. Some point to 2006 as being the final year of true relevance and excitement for Nike Skateboarding’s Dunk releases, with the Pushead being one of the last few heavy-hitters before the sub-label went on a prolonged slump. Designed by famed street-artist Pushead, the late 2005 release of the Pushead x Nike SB Dunk Low featured his signature artwork in album covers and skate decks is considered to be one of greatest of the entire series thanks to it’s mind-blowing colorway, weaved inner lining, and special edition box. Expected to release this Fall 2012, Nike SB will release a ‘bleached’ version of the original Pushead x Nike SB Dunk Low; this particular pair is on display at Civilist Berlin as part of an art installation by Juergen Bluemlein of the Skateboard Museum.
