February 2006 was a good month of sneaker releases for Nike SB fans. Not only did the Dunk Low “Hawaii” release but the “Send Help” Dunk High was on sale as well. Although initially the Hawaii’s were the most sought after release, with is vibrant colors and clear outsole, these High’s quickly gained momentum with its easy build and classic look. Not surprising the man behind the design of this particular skate option was frequent Nike SB contributor, Todd Bratrud of Consolidate Skateboards.

Featuring a mostly suede upper, Bratrud decided on the combination of black, white and Blue Reef to color the Dunk High. Although the usage of three colors on a Dunk is nothing new, the colorblocking on the “Send Helps” create a standout product. White is featured in leather on the Swoosh and toebox standout along with the mesh tongue. The front half featured in black while the back half is done up in the sea blue. The classic white midsole with matching blue sole completes the exterior of the shoe.
