Nike teamed with West Coast skateboarding company Diamond Supply Co. to produce the Nike Dunk Low Pro SB Tiffany–known simply as the Tiffanys–back in 2005. One of Nike’s most popular models, the Dunk Low Pro SB features blue leather like the color of your girlfriend’s (or wife’s or mom’s) favorite Tiffany & Co box, accented by black croc-embossed leather and chrome swoosh. Sneakerheads, like myself, consider it one of the finest shoes ever released. In 2012, Complex ranked Dunk Low Pro SB the #3 shoe of the last decade behind only the Nike Air MAG (“Back to the Future”) and a retro model of the classic Air Jordan 4s. The famous sneaker shop The Flight Club currently has one pair of unworn Tiffanys in my size, 11.5, on sale for the low, low price of $1,300.
On February 8, 2014, the two parties will release another shoe: the Nike SB x Diamond Dunk. The shoe is a high top dunk version of their previous offering. It looks great. Details are sketchy on release in physical stores, but Nike typically requires you to use Twitter to reserve a pair. This change was brought about in response to outbreaks of violence at various stores across the US by people waiting in line for releases in 2012. The shoes also go on sale at nike.com at 8 AM EST that day, and they’re expected to be sold out quickly. If you are lucky enough to find a pair in your size, you will only have to pay $108 to own them, but expect the price to be several times that at consignment shops like the Flight Club shortly after release.
