A few days before Thanksgiving we were treated to a couple shots of a black-on-black Nike SB Dunk high that was reportedly going to include Gore-Tex materials throughout the entire design. Today we report that the shoe does not consists of a Gore-Tex make-up. Instead, these are considered “waterproof” because the tongue actually comes attached to the inside of the shoe along the inner shoe laces area. Although without Gore-Tex, this Nike SB Dunk high still poses a nice all-black-everything alternative to the other black/black sneakers we’ve seen popping up left and right. These are available for purchase from select Nike SB retailers today.
In life we go through alot everyday. People say and do things to us that cause us to get out of synch with what’s going on. Is this you? Do you walk around hoping for someone to tell you how good you doing? Do you plead with people so they can give you hope. Be relentless. Move to the beat of a different drummer. Watch things slowly change around.
