Nike Dunk High SB “Glen Quagmire”

Here's a look at the latest Dunk High SB. It comes with a navy/red suede upper and a yellow stars all-over embroidery. The stars have a certain hand made look to themselves, which we like. The shoe is inspired by the Glen Quagmire character from Family Guy. The white/gum sole is a nice finish.

The Nike Dunk High SB will be available at UNITE.

Nike Dunk High SB - Green Canvas/Red Nubuck, Spring 2009

I don't know how to feel about this shoe. It makes me feel....ummm crazy? Look for them this spring.

Summer 2009 Nike SB Dunks

A fresh summer lies ahead for us. Look for these at UNITE.

Nike ACG Air Pegasus Hybrid

This is not an SB but it is a tight release from NIKE for the winter months in the north. If you want to be styles in the cold this is a definite pickup. There was also the ACG Blazer Mid. I still don't know where to cop the Blazers, if you know hit me up.

The trend of bringing standard Nike styles with ACG features and a subtle brown uppers continues. Recently we have seen the Air Magma and the Blazer High getting the treatment. Here is a preview of the Air Pegasus also coming with a suede upper, 3M detailing and red lacing. Via hypebeast.

Definitely a solid looking hiking sneaker. Expect it to be released in the coming months.

Nike SB Fall 2009 Showcase Booth

The Nike SB booth at BRIGHT in Frankfurt houses their Fall 2009 footwear collection, but we think that the showcase and presentation build out around the line is worthy of a noting. The showcase room for Nike SB has a feel of a men’s salon. The walls are lined with books supporting some of the coming models and colorways in the Fall 2009 offering as well as imagery from the Nike SB German skate team’s visit to Dubai.

Nike Snowboarding Zoom Force 1 DK-YS Danny Kass signature boot

I am not a boarder but I can appreciate the style aspect of snowboarding, especially when Nike enters the battle. I ski, but I am not afraid of the terrain parks.

I scoped some great Burton gear last winter when I was out in Jackson Hole, but now Burton has some comp:

Nike Snowboarding has revealed the latest incarnation of its Zoom Force 1 snowboarding boot.

The DK-YS is a signature model for Nike rider Danny Kass and is covered in artwork by Arbito.

To promote Danny’s boot, Nike has produced an ad featuring the rider and animation also by Arbito, similar to his designs on the boot.

See below for stills from the ad and view it in full on High Snobiety and the Nike Snowboarding site, which also contains more info and pics of the boot. If you look closely, you’ll catch several glimpses of a forthcoming Dunk Mid SB, slated for a July ‘09 release, adorning Mr Kass’ feet.

Nike ACG Air Blazer Mid

Steering away from the rainbow for at least one release, Nike produces a pair of their Blazer model in a classic ACG motif. Everything from the buttery suede tonal uppers to the blacked-out midsoles screams outdoors. Accented with matching red laces and ACG tagging, slightly wider stance and new revised toe-cap these somewhat hybrids surely provide a refreshing approach to the traditionally slim silhouette of the Nike Blazer. A release is expected at select Nike retailers within the coming week with a price tag of $98 USD.

Thanks hypebeast.

I usually rock the SB's nowadays but my original swoosh love was the ACG line. Here is a release that combines two of my favorite Nike inventions the Blazer and ACG. Good winter wear.

Nike SB Dunk Hi - Black/Green Stitching January 2009 Release Twin Peaks

Here are some pics off the Nike SB dot org forum from youngxlos. This release is looking fly! Much better than the last pics we put up.

Nike SB Dunk Summer 09 Mid "Workwear"

Coming out this summer, Nike SB is coming strong with a good design. This is a skater shoe. It looks like a tough construction of canvas that keeps this shoe together. Keep it simple Nike SB, and you have my vote. Look for these in your local shops this summer.

Triumvir x Fly x Nike SB “Beijing” Dunk Mid January 09 Quickstrike

The Triumvir x Fly x Nike SB Dunk Mid Beijing made quite a splash this past November and will finally be releasing next month. The collaboration brings Triumvir, Fly Streetwear and Nike SB to release the Dunk Mid Elite SB Beijing. As noted before, the sneakers are heavily inspired by Bejing including its dust, traffic, highways, noodles, and Tienanmen Square. The sneakers consist of white and grey toned uppers with black appearing on the mid-section toebox and gold stitching around the swoosh. Look for them at select Nike SB retailers including UNITE.

Nike SB Dunk Mid - Plaid Midsection Sample

What we have pictured here is close to the final version of a spring release, but only a sample. I always love plaid in a shoe; I have the Todd Jordan SB Blazers I still rock. Although I do not usually purchase mids (I had my local shop set me aside a pair of Tokyo's, but one of the owners sold them on me by accident), I do appreciate a good design. This is a solid design that doesn't hurt my eyes.

I would like to emphasize that if your local shop has SB's cop your kicks from them. If supports your local economy and cuts down on pollution from shipping. You might pay $3 more but it keeps your local economy going, not to mention you get to try on the kicks.



While you may not have had 3k to drop on Gumsoles samples of the original, this is the next best thing. Never the less the history will speak for the sneaker. While the samples will be worth even more now.


I am not really feeling the first pics of this sneaker. So far, the color-ways of what is lined up for 2009 are not satisfying my design aesthetic. The test is when you try them on, so I will wait for that moment to make comment.
