Nick Diamond of Diamond Supply Co. is undoubtedly responsible for supplying the sneakerhead community with one of the greatest SB Dunks (or sneakers, period) in history. As part of Nike SB’s Team Manager series of 2005, Diamond Supply Co., which sponsored its own skate team, was asked to recreate the Nike SB Dunk with a distinct POV; what resulted was a perfect shoe that mixed the luxurious nature of the ‘diamond’ with the familiar turquoise blue that has been the signature color of one of the world’s leading diamond/jewelry retailers.
The Tiffany SB Dunks to this day continue to be one of the most sought-after SB Dunks out there, but even Nick Diamond needed some special connections to lace up his youngest daughter; the Tiffanys were never released in pre-school sizes, but Nike SB cooked up these PS-sized pairs just for Nick himself (and the newer Nike box shows that these are indeed fresh out of the oven), allowing Nick to lace up his entire clan in ‘Tiffany’ fashion. Another shot of this bite-sized Dunk is just below, so take a look and let us know if you think Nike SB has plans of re-releasing this historic shoe, or perhaps asking Diamond Supply Co. to do a ‘remixed’ version similar to how Supreme finished off its recent SB Dunk release.
