DunkID

nWo SB Dunks
My first dunk is called the nike SB nWo.  It draws inspiration from the wresting gang from WCW.  I would have to say this was the pinnacle of wrestling on TV; when the Outsiders and Hollywood ruled the wrestling wars.  The uppers have black patent leather, the swoosh is in white but will have this spray paint affect on them, the laces, midsole stitching and bottom soles are in white.  And of course I added a patch on the side because once you’re in nWo, you’re in it 4 Life.

Steinway & Sons SB Dunks
My next dunk is inspired by Steinway & Sons pianos.  I was listening to some classical music when I was designing them.  They are very similar to my nWo dunks because they also use black patent leather.  However they feature a gold patent leather swoosh, black soles, piano key design on the insole, and a Steinway & Sons design stitched on the side in gold thread.

Legend of Zelda (Link) SB Dunks
I have been playing a lot of Phantom Hourglass lately and thought creating a dunk inspired by Link’s dress wear would be cool.  However I used the colorway from the version of Link I remember from the 80’s.  This dunk is very similar to the Nike SB Jedi’s in that the strap, eyestay, and tip use premium leather in a dark forest green.  The base uses buttery soft suede in a green colorway.  The swoosh is in yellow and uses premium leather, the midsole is golden brown (similar to Link’s tights), the bottom sole is chocolate brown as well as the laces, and I added a triforce emblem on the side wall.
