So whatever happened to that red box? The Blue Box Era has been going for a good while now and though it appears those photos of the white-branded vibrant red box could have just as easily said ‘BP’ as ‘SB’, the death knoll of the Blue Box is indeed sounding. Preston, UK’s Scene just got in their new shipment of Nike Skateboarding sneakers, and the new box is a complete departure for this series in its twelvth year, yet it feels totally familiar. Not only does the recycled look echo Nike Sportswear’s long-running default, but regular Sneaker News readers will remember that not only was the Nike SB Dunk Pro Book packaged in a similar fashion, but the cover of the spring 2013 catalog also featured the same ‘taped-up’ look. Let us know how you feel about the “Delivered from the Future in a Cardboard Box” box and stick with Sneaker News for all the Nike SB Quickstrike release dates.
