…Nike makes SB Dunk tributes?

Nike’s SB line of skate shoes are often some of the most creative tributes to grace your feet.

Nike Dunk SB 720 Degrees

First, there’s the Nike Dunk SB “720 Degrees”. Inspired by the first skateboarding arcade game, Atari’s 720 Degrees, these kicks feature a perfect match to the game’s color scheme, and will definitely make you stand out at the next arcade competition.

Nike Dunk SB Newcastle Brown Ale

Then, there’s the Nike Dunk SB “Newcastle Brown Ale”. Inspired by the delicious brown ale out of Newcastle, England, these kicks feature a hoppy style that is perfect for your next beer fest.

Regardless of your style, there’s no doubting the creativity that goes into a mash-up like this; and I commend Nike for thinking outside the box when is comes to design.

…Vanilla Ice will get his own Nikes?

Vanilla Ice Blazer

The third shoe in the Nike SB Fallen Heroes pack is the Vanilla Ice (AKA Robert Matthew Van Winkle) Blazer, a simple design with subtle references to his “To The Extreme” album cover art.

Plus, they steal beats from other shoes, then deny it publicly till they’re forced to revamp their career on a bad episode of The Surreal Life.
