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.

We are well into the new year and the folks in Beaverton are on an absolute tear. Part of that tear is this new Air Max 1 that is said to be part of a Nike Track & Field Collection. This collection is inspired by and paying tribute to Athletics West & Steve Prefontaine. Featuring a simple two tone color blocking of black and reflective 3M material these are perfect for the spring rainy season approaching in many locales. No exact release date is known but comment below if these are a cop for you!
