After all the hype surrounding previous big releases, can Nike produce after the the "What The Dunk"? I have had several discussions with some of the people that queued for the "What The Dunk" SB and I have started to question whether or not Nike SB releases can only get better or worse.

Can you see anything bigger and more hyped than the "What The Dunk"?

Obviously there is loads of potential for future shoes to top the What the Dunk's...

I mean, consider this, back in the day people would have said the same thing about every thing from the Supreme Dunk Lows - Dunkles, so no reason why it wouldn't be possible to top the What The Dunk...


I can see where your coming from, after Nike combined literally nearly every anticipated SB Dunk and all the hype surrounding the release I just cannot see a release as prolific for a very long time. I'm just very curious to see what's around the corner for SB.

Nike SB should concentrate more on skate shoes and use that Nike SB Collection white box thingie to release more fancy type deals for people who are strictly sneaker collectors.

You couldn't be more wrong. If that was true then why would they have what the dunks or any of the other shoes that were used on those? "Sneakerheads" are a large profit margin for nike sb.

What are you kidding? I dunno why everyone is hating on those, they were a pretty simple and clean design. They were done aesthetically with the original movie poster, which was the whole premise of the shoe.

The shoe's concept is nothing more than lilac swoosh and light green inner cushioning. The designers could have done much more and taken advantage of the concept but they didn't.

I dont think anyone really likes them as a shoe to rock. its more of a collector's item. they are all hype. like i said, there were no sick releases this year. im also really not caring about new shoe models for sb ill stick to dunks and blazers anywayz.

A perfect example was the "Homer" and "Heineken" SB the simplicity and colors worked wonders, there was concept.

nike should look to the good customs made on their base shoe and start making exclusive lines similar to the customs. HUGE profit there for wannabe snkrheads and such
