The last season of Pee Wee’s Playhouse was in 1991. This was primarily due to Pee Wee, Paul Rubens, getting arrested for masturbating in an adult movie theater. Though he was only fined $50 and had to do a couple hours of community service work, his career would be forever tarnished.
Lately, Nike and more specifically Nike SB have been pretty creative with their sneakers including the Dunk. First we saw the “Thing” Dunks, then the “Mork and Mindy” Dunks SB, and now we have the Pee Wee Herman Dunks SB.
The colorway resembles Pee Wee’s famous grey suit with a red bow tie. The insole shows Pee Wee sitting all alone in a movie theater with one arm on the armrest and the other, well, you figure it out.
Pee Wee’s will release in early 2007.
UPDATE: The Pee Wee Herman Dunks are part of the Nike SB Fallen Heroes Pack.
