Sneaker Spotlight: Nike SB Dunk High Pro “Dinosaur Jr.”

If there is anything we learned about the folks working at Nike Skateboarding over the year, it’s that they like to be inspired by alcohol and by music. In 2007 a special Dunk High Pro was created to commemorate the return of 80’s alternative rock band, Dinosaur Jr. and their new album, Beyond. Over two decades had passed since the band’s first album, the sneakers along with the the album were met with praise.

The sneakers had a 80’s style aura around them. Built on a shiny Silver leather base, Purple additions brought it all together. On the left heel the band’s name was embroidered on, while the right heel featured the band’s signature mascot. The look was so popular that Nike SB actually created a version of Omar Salazar’s signature sneaker in the same manner (which still needs to be uploaded). Are you fans of the band and the sneakers?
