Ever since I started skating 20+ years ago, it's always been three main interests for me: Skateboarding, hip hop, and shoes. Skateboarding has alway been the strongest for me, of course. Lots of friends have the same mix in different strengths. SPoT homie Wit-E Beats is strong on shoes, so every now and then, he's going to take you in for a closer look at new footwear here at SPoT. Here's his first post:
a Dunk Low in pine green and black with atom red accents. This Dunk is reminiscent of the Deftone Dunk Highs from 2003. The colorway is pretty similar, but the materials are very different. This sneaker uses a nappy suede resembling the suede on the Tauntaun Dunks, and the black parts of the shoe and the pine green leather underneath has a wood grain texture to it. I really like the heel padding that Nike is now using inside the Dunk Lows...it makes them much more comfortable. These come with black laces for a more subtle look and an extra pair of red laces to match the red accents on the tongue and heel tags which make them pop and gives a Gucci vibe. There is white stitching on the swoosh and heel panels that seems out of place, but doesn't distract much from the overall aesthetic of the sneaker. This pair is available now at SPoT Skate Shop Ybor for $98. Get more photos and a closer look: Pine Green Dunk Low Nike SB February 2012.
