Nike SB recently teamed up with NYC based skateboarding website and brand, Quartersnacks for a collaborative effort on the Nike Sb dunk low. For those that may be unfamiliar with Quartersnacks, it's a website for skateboarders, by skateboarders both birthed and still based out of New York City. Hailing from Upstate, NY, I am very familiar with Quartersnacks, and when the news of a dunk collaboration broke, I was immediately excited along with many skateboarders and fans of the skate-based website. While rumors of the Quartersnacks x Nike dunk were well known, both a picture of the sneakers we should expect and a solid release date seemed to continually change month after month, until some solid release info and final pictures eventually surfaced in early August. While sticking to a basic, predominately black based upper, the details in the Quartersnacks dunk low is what Nike and Quartersnacks used to bring the sneaker to life. A buttery black suede upper sits atop a white mid-sole and gum outsole combo that makes for an extremely clean look. Subtle details such as a pebbled leather swoosh with a 3m border and ripstop material used on the tongue combine with Quartersnacks branding on the tongue tag, heel and insole to make this collaboration appeal to the die-hard dunk fans and your everyday skateboarders alike.
Although the Quartersnacks x Nike SB dunk low came in this years tiffany and black quickstrike box, allocation numbers more resembled general release figures, as opposed to some of the more limited quickstrikes that have released in 2014. Confusion whether the Quartersnacks dunk low was going to be a general release or a quickstrike made for an interesting situation for many fans who were patiently awaiting the chance to purchase a pair. As previously mentioned, the Quartersnacks dunk low was actually a general release that shops were allowed to book orders on many months ahead of time, so when the time came that shops finally received their shipments of the Quartersnacks dunk low, they were put out on shelves and sold immediately like any other general release dunk. Needless to say, the collaborative effort from Nike SB and Quartersnacks was a huge hit and sold out immediately in skateshops across the US. Yet another sneaker on a long list of sneakers i've been lucky enough to grab without having to jump through any hoops, thanks to my local skateshop, Seasons.
With that said, check out some high quality photos I shot of the Quartersnacks x Nike SB dunk low I shot on yet another beautiful day in Upstate, NY. Stay tuned for more upcoming features of some of the latest Nike SB releases.
