Nike SB Custom Series Volume 3 2009

Inspired by images of 80’s-era skate videos featuring skate sessions on cars, Jon Humphries conceptualized the scene for Nike SB’s Custom Series Volume 3. The roster of skaters for the series were each given free reign on the colorway design of their own sneaker which included Daryl Angel (Dunk Low Premium SB), Clark Hassler (Blazer Low Hybrid Premium), Justin Brock (Dunk Mid Premium SB) and Grant Taylor (Blazer SB Elite). Each skater will also see a t-shirt release alongside the shoes with releases starting in March with Angel and Hassler and ending in April with Brock and Taylor.

Nike Dunk SB MID Premium - TV Official Release February 2009

This Nike Dunk SB Mid - TV landed at the Pivot Skateshop in Cologne. The Dunk takes inspiration from the Television. At first its near impossible to tell what these Dunk represent but the pixel graphic on the insole does a better job of conveying the message. The Dunk comes in a colorway of cappuccino and silver but the silver parts look more like grey. The silver toebox and the cappuccino sidepanel is made of a material similar to griptape. The swoosh comes with premium leather while the rest of the dunk is made of suede. Check out the pictures for a closer look.

Nike SB P-Rod 3 Exclusive Pics via Savage Photography

I am looking forward to seeing what the PROD 3 has in terms of design and comfort.
My first pair of SB's were the hemp PROD's, I shyed away NIKE SB at first due to the lack of sustainable materials.

I am into sustainable materials when choosing my clothing and kicks. I do have the dunk low hemp pack (Green, blue, and red) to further support the idea that I love organic cotton, hemp, and bamboo.

I do buy stuff from Nike's Considered line when the design is good. If you don't know about Nike Considered check out the link.

Currently I am rocking these this winter. They are a considered design that work in the Northeast for the cold winter months of pounding the pavement to get to work.


NSB Member Savage explains below-

“So, today I got the chance to take some photos of Prod skating. It’s amazing seeing a pro in person, haha. After a while, I finally realized that he was skating in his Prod 3’s. These definitely look like the thinnest of his series of pro model shoes. That’s good for some board feel when skating. Still in a non-vulc type of sole. Toecap is a mixture of leather/suede, which has a different, symbolic design. Somewhat symbolic like the cement print on air jordans and other print on safari materials. The swoosh is leather as well. Most of the shoe however is made of suede.”

Nike SB February 2009 Releases

Here is the complete line-up of Nike SB February 2009 releases. This month Nike SB will be releasing a new Dunk Low Pro SB, Dunk Mid Pro SB, P-Rod 2 Zoom Air, Zoom Tre A.D., Zoom Air Harbour and Blazer Premium Low SB.

We don't play favorites here, we just offer opinions. You know what they say about opinions...

We think that the Dunk mid is a solid design. The safe/boring designs are the blazer low and the harbor. It is OK to be be a little bland sometimes, but everyone needs some flair.

Again, the proof is in the pudding. These opinions on the interweb are just from a-holes looking at pics. So get down to your local Nike SB retailer and check them out in person. UNITE is my local shop, and I support them as much as I can. Keep your local shop alive and well by purchasing your kicks from them.

Where would we be without these local guys bringing the culture to our little slices of the universe?
