In 2007 Nike SB teamed up with alternative rock band for a pair of sneakers which instantaneously became one of the most sought after SB’s. With their bright silver finish accented with purple, the sneakers defiantly weren’t the most fashionable at the time. Although they did have a cool little prehistoric character included on the heel which tied into the band name, something which may have helped them rise to popularity. Whatever it may have been that attracted people to the sneakers they some reason or another climbed to the top and became the grails for a lot of SB’s collectors. If you haven’t figured it out yet we’re of course speaking about none other then the Dinosaur Jr SB Dunks which Nike SB designed alongside the the Amherst, Massachusetts rock band.
Looking to generate the same buzz they did last year Nike SB teamed with the group again to work up a special edition of the new Nike SB Zoom Omar Salazar. Flipping the script in terms of colorway the SB Zoom Omar Salazar uses the purple as it’s base color, on a patent leather upper, whereas the Dunks used the hue as an accent color. The silver itself is gone completely and green comes in to take it’s place with it appearing on the inner lining, outsole, laces and outlining the tonal Swoosh. A glittery effect is used throughout the entire upper which sparkles in a variety of colors depending on the angle of light hitting them and the Dinosaur Jr. logo is seen embroidered along the heel.
We haven’t an official release details, or even really know whether or not they’ll ever be released, so stay tuned for further details as the story develops. A second show displayed the glittery rainbow effect follows after the jump. Via: NSB
