So the weather has cleared and I can return to the schedule of wearing Nike SB's every Friday. Had to take a break last week due to the rain and the fact that I love you readers but not enough to take a chance mucking up a pair of shoes. Today's pair are the "Halloween" Dunk Low SB Premium's from October of 2009 and come in a green spark / hoop orange colorway. Apparently Nike didn't think the black and yellow in the shoe merited mention on the box. Plus they come shipped with purple laces with a secondary pair of yellow laces in the box. I bought them from Bluetile Skateshop here in Columbia (631 Harden St. (803)376-1880) a few months ago in their sale section. They originally retailed for $98.00 (they are a premium) and I paid $39.99 for them. Today is actually the first time I've worn them as I threw them in the SB stack and honestly forget about them until today. To be honest I was looking for the Un-Heavens Gate's to see if the purple in that shoe matched the purple in the sweater I wanted to wear today. When I saw these I realized the laces in them matched the sweater perfectly and the green and orange would really stand out. Of course that meant that I had to do all new research since I was changing the script. These are available on a few different websites with www.pickyourshoes.com having the best price at $79.99. I also found them at www.uptempoair.com and at www.flightclubla.com.
A few other things, don't forget that the OG Royal Blue Nike Foamposite One Retro is dropping tomorrow in most stores with a price of $200.00. In most places these will go very fast so you might want to call your spot today and see if they're opening early. This is the first of about five Foamposite retro's dropping this year. Three are the one version and two will be the pro model. The only difference between the two model is the fact that the pro model has the Swoosh on the side and the one doesn't. Plus the pro is $20 cheaper at $180 instead of $200. But for you newbies or uneducated, this is the most desirable colorway as it is the original colorway. The Eggplants are huge too but nothing beats OG colors. Also want to congratulate ray Allen for setting the 3-point record last night. Respect the hell out of Jesus Shuttlesworth (if you don't know the name Google it) but for my money Reggie Miller is still the best 3-point shooter ever. Dude was just sick and so clutch. Plus he just killed the Knicks every single time. Watching him and Spike Lee go at in the Garden was magic. Waiting to see what Jordan Brand is going to do to as a tribute to them moment. Ray has been with them forever so they need to do something special and big.
About to head out to check DTLR, the Footaction Outlet, and Bluetile so check back tonight for the updates, Cheapsoles
