I cant believe they took the fat toungue out.. might as well not call them SB's anymore. What do you guys think about the fact that they took the Traditional Fat Toungue out?

Isn't this old new now??? I'm pretty sure the fat tongues were gone like 6 months+ ago.

The fat tongues are what made the dunk low sbs. now, they're just a regular dunk low. It doesn't help the color schemes for most of them are wack too.

I definetely skated better with the fat tongues. Even with the whole slimming down of skate shoes trends (board feel is the new heel bubble), most companies still have a little bit of padding on the tongue. The way the dunk sb lows were in the beginning were perfect. Just the right amount of padding without the sneaks feeling like boxing gloves on your feet. Now, they're just really not that special anymore. Add the ugly colors that they've been putting out on those and it's game over for me.

even alot of the dunk sbs that I thought were kind of crappy before they took out the padded tongue look ten times better now compared to the new batch.

Fat tongues are nice but the older thinner tongues were nice too like on bucks. Haven't got a pair new with thin tongues yet.

Fat tongues made them more visually appealing, and made them stand out from regular dunks, but I highly doubt Nike will bring them back.

Eh....they are still stuffed, but just not as much. Kinda weak-sauce now. About as stuffed as the blazers...first the lace bag, and then the tongue. why not just put a 360 bubble on the bottom of them... fuck it.

its a matter of opinion...if the tongues were still fat, people will bitch about then needing to be skinny. now that they are thin, people bitch about needing to be fat.confused

The fat tongue is what makes it the sb. I don't skate so I can't comment on whether it is better or not. But without the tongue, it is just another dunk low.
