Partnerships with skate-shops comprised the original and most popular collaborations of Nike SB’s first season (Supreme, Zoo York, etc.), and the ‘Slam City’ is no exception. Designed by Slam City Skates of the United Kingdom, this great release was widely popular for the quality materials and unique color-combination and details – namely the caricature of Jesus on the tongue and the map detail on the insole. Another overlooked note is that the more you skate in the Slam City Dunks, the colors change; the Swoosh has a funky material that changes with wear and tear, giving true skaters that distinct look from those who merely keep their kicks on ice. We’ll end this week’s Classics Revisited feature of 2005 SB Dunk Lows here, so let us know if you liked our selections and stay tuned for more next week!
