Nike Dunks SB

Nike launched the Nike SB line in March of 2002 at the start of the rise of the Skateboarding trend. For years in California, the skate culture was very popular and skateboarding shoes and clothes were worn more as casual wear than by actual skateboarders. Nike saw the potential to tapping into this market and thus launched the Nike Skateboarding line.Nike launched their skateboarding lines on the back of the Nike Dunks SB. The Nike Skateboarding Dunks were the same shape and fit as the Nike Dunks, but with several performance changes.First of all, Nike knew that with the wear and tear of the foot, a good cushioning system was needed. Since skateboarding shoes need to have a low center of gravity, the Nike Dunks SBs had Zoom Air insoles. Next, the Nike Dunk SBs had extra padding added to the area around the ankle and to the tongue. The extra padding to the tongue did provide some extra cushioning between the top of the foot and the board, but it was more for cosmetic appearance than anything. Lastly, Nike beefed up the quality of the materials on the Nike Skateboarding Dunks. With double and triple stitching being the standard in the skateboarding shoe industry, Nike made the Dunks SBs much stronger than tradional dunks.

Nike SB captured alot of attention by releasing a pair of “Charity Dunks” which were sold on eBay. These Nike Dunk SBs were 1 of only 2 pairs in the world . The shoes were made in the eBay colors and the Nike Dunk SBs ended up selling for over $30,000! The money all went to charity, but a wise move by Nike brough millions of dollars worth of advirtising by releasing these exclusive limited Nike Dunk SBs.

There have been many legendary Nike Dunk SBs. In fact, there are only a handful of Nike skateboarding shoes that sell for more than $150 that are NOT Dunk SBs. On the flip side, unless there are a ton of supply, it is rare to find a nice looking pair of Nike Dunk SBs selling for less than $150. Some of the most famous Dunk SBs are the first Supremes, Heinekens, Supas, Forbes, Mulder, Tiffanys, and Calis to just name a very few.

Nike SB Dunks are not sold everywhere, in fact they are often hard to find. The best way to find a place that sells them is to go to the official Nike Skateboarding website which is NikeSkateboarding.com. To talk it up about Nike Dunk SBs with other SB fans, check our NikeSkateboarding.org.

There have been many special events celebrated with the Nike Dunk SBs. There were special skateboarding Dunks made for St. Pattys day in 2005. Also, there have been some ultra-rare Lebron Nike Dunk SBs even though Lebron James doesn’t skate. The Nike Dunk SB was also the first shoe that Nike did colaborations with other artists and companies.

All out havoc broke out in New York when there was the super rare release of the Nike Dunk SB “Pigeons.” In February 2005, a mini riot broke out at a store on New York’s Lower East Side as sneakerheads camped out in freezing temperatures for days to get the new Nike Dunk SB release, the Pigeon Dunk, for $300 a pair. When the store opened, according to the New York Post, 70 people were in line. Twenty got the shoes, the other 50 got attitudes. Police were deployed on scene before hand because many knew what would happen when news got out to the sneakerheads who waited outside in freezing temperatures for several days for nothing.
