One of the most popular SB Dunk releases of 2005 was the tribute to the Roswell Rayguns – the fictional semi-pro basketball team that was featured as part of Nike Basketball’s advertisement campaigns of 2005. It features the signature Yellow/Orange colors on the center and heel panels with the Rayguns logo embroidered on the heel. Aside from being one of the more coveted SB Dunk drops of the year, there are some interesting facts about the Rayguns that are often overlooked. For one, the Black pair was considered the ‘Home’ version and the White was referred to as the ‘Away’ (an unusual exception from what’s become accepted as Home and Away colors). Secondly, the Rayguns were one of the very few SB Dunk releases that released in Toddler sizes. And finally, the Rayguns were designed by custom sneaker extraordinaire Methamphibian, who would go on and create his own SB Dunk representing his SBTG label. More of tonight’s Classics Revisited is just ahead, so check out both colors and let us know if you have either one in your stash.
