With four releases, October is going to be a good month for Nike SB Dunk fans. My favorite of the bunch, the Thunder Dunk Low, was initially slated to release in August, but got delayed for some reason and just came in. They remind me of the Pro B Lightning Dunks from 2001 and feature some really nice suede uppers...
Wife-E and I rolled into SPoT Ybor at 10am to find about 35 people waiting on the Pushead 2’s. Upon arrival there appeared to be no form of organization to the line, mainly because there was no real line. People were spread all over the area surrounding the Shop.
It's been 7 years since the release of the first Nike SB x Pushead collaboration. For those of you who don't know, Pushead is an artist, record label owner, and writer within the hardcore punk and heavy metal scenes.
This is a sneaker that has been anticipated for over a year, and with all the drama surrounding them it seemed as if they would never actually release, written off by most as one of those sneakers they will never get to own.
I still can’t believe how lucky I got being able to be part of the culture and lifestyle of all of these amazing things well into the ripe old age I’m at now. Check photos and video from the release here.
