Nike SB Dunk Low “Palm Tree”

John March 14, 2010 2

Check out this new release from Nike SB that should be hitting shops today…the Nike SB Dunk Low “Palm Tree.”  As a skateboarder, there is a pretty sick concept behind this sneaker…if you don’t skate than you might not appreciate this as much.  The concept behind this Dunk Low is a tribute to a famous skate spot out in San Francisco…the Wallenberg big four stair set.  Wallenberg has been the site for many bangers over the years…thrasher magazine even has an annual contest there to see who can do a ‘never been done’ trick down the massively long set…last year Chris Cole completely destroyed it with a backside 360 2nd try and a switch frontside flip…anyways, enough about that.  The colorway for the Dunk Low Palm Tree was designed by artist and designer, Bob Kronbauer.  The green colorway is an homage to a little palm tree that has grown at the spot and has been in all the videos and magazines over the last 20 years since the spot first popped up…listen to the designer explaine it, “The colorway draws a palette from the palm tree itself while utilizing hemp for the Swoosh. The white midsole represents the step and has a visible “waxed ledge” around the top of it, just like that step at Wallenberg. Lastly, the insoles each contain a pixelated image of the palm tree itself, giving a nod to all of the times it has appeared in skate videos over the years.”

These sneakers are also just in time for St. Patrick’s day…so put these on and you dont have to worry about getting pinched…i hate that.  Check out the following Nike SB Dunk Low Palm Tree shoes for sale through the eBay auctions below.
