It was six years ago during this month that a special Dunk Low Pro SB was released that changed the world of sneakers. Much like how Air Jordans created a huge following for basketball shoes, this special colorway that was nicknamed “Tiffany” created a huge increase of attention to Nike SB as well as skateboarding sneakers in general.

Created as part of a special Team Manager series, this shoe was one of five shoes made for the pack. The series invited team managers of various skateboard companies to create their own version of a SB shoe. Nick Tershay, better known as Nick Diamond, the owner/creator of Diamond Supply Co, designed the shoe.  The official colorway of the shoe was Aqua/Chrome, both referencing the colors used by Tiffany & Co. But the Black additions are attention grabbing in their own right, as the Black leather panels feature a faux crocodile print.

The combination of colors has been a popular one that has been used on other shoes like the Zoom Stefan Janoski and Paul Rodriguez 2.5. For better or for worse depending on whom you speak to, six years ago this shoe changed how the sneaker world functioned. What are your thoughts on this iconic shoe?
