To celebrate its new Eastern Parkway flagship in Brooklyn, New York, retailer SNIPES has presented a “Dunks Since 1985” pop-up museum at the store. Nestled in the center of the 6,000 square foot converted bank, the pop-up museum consists of 35 ultra-rare and influential
Upon entering the store, visitors can feast their eyes on the 35 Dunks, all stacked up in translucent boxes filled with bright lights. Though each pair is a standout in its own right, special gems include the ultra-rare Dunk High “Wu-Tang” from 1999, three SB Dunk styles from Futura — the SB Dunk High “FLOM,” the SB Dunk High “Unkle” and a signed pair of the unreleased SB Dunk Low “Unkle” — and other grail-status styles like Concepts‘ SB Dunk Low “Yellow Lobster” and the SB Dunk Low “Freddy Krueger” sample.
Apart from the “Dunks Since 1985” exhibit, the store also contains a vast selection of footwear and apparel from Nike, Jordan Brand, adidas, New Balance and more. Guest safety is a foremost concern as well: in the time of coronavirus, the store is currently limited to 25% capacity and all patrons must wear a face mask.
The store is located at 1117 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY 11213, directly by the Utica Avenue stop on the 3 and 4 trains (plus the 2 and 5 trains during rush hour). It’s open from 11am to 8pm Monday through Saturday, and 11am to 7pm on Sundays. “Dunks Since 1985” will be on display until February 28.
