Worlds colliding! In news leaked earlier this year we heard talk of a collaboration between Jordan brand and Nike Skateboarding. This collaboration makes total sense since the Jordan 1 and very similar Nike Dunk High were being used by skaters 20 years before the incarnation of the SB division. This leaked pic popped up on n-sb.org and shows what appears to be a black and royal Jordan 1 with Nike SB tongue branding. Originally thought to be coming early this year, only time will tell what is to come from this highly anticipated collaboration. One thing we can predict with certainty is that these will sell quick!

All the hype on the Premier Nike SB Dunk Low for April has a lot of people talking about Nike SB again. While we’re on the topic today we take a look at a SB Dunk High that is also set to DROP in April. This Dunk is very reminiscent of the Plums that came out last summer but a little nicer to me. Featuring an upper of primarily Deep Burgundy suede these will go great with your favorite pair of denim and add a little pop. The leather quarter panel and toe boxes is done in a smooth plum leather and its capped off with a black swoosh and tongue tag for a little bit of contrast. All of this is sitting on top of a signature white midsole blending into a tonal black outsole. Premier actually has this DROP a little early for $95 + shipping so comment below and then head on over to grab your pair!

 

Those familiar with Nike SB know they are no stranger to beer themed released such as the famed Heineken and Dos Equis of way back and more recently the Tecate, High Life, and New Castles. Well they are back to basics with some more beer themed releases for spring 2012. Could this be a pack releasing together? Here we see shots of the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Black and Tan’ and the Nike SB Dunk High ‘Guiness’. Both dunks feature obvious odes to the beers with brown and black leathers and mesh. The low version features a specialized insole that perhaps will also be featured on the high in some form. From initial looks the quality is not what we hoped to see from SB in 2012 as the leather doesn’t look up to pair with their themed releases of the past. Great colorways yes but I know I will be passing on these DROPs and sticking with the real beers. One additional thought is a potential for ‘Harps’ or ‘Bass” themed DROP to pop up soon as well given that your typical black and tan beer is half Guiness and half another lighter bodied beer.
