The Brooklyn Projects x Nike SB collaboration has been rife with controversy since the first images of the Nike SB Dunk Low “Walk Of Fame” leaked. From “Is it or isn’t it releasing?” talks popping up every couple weeks, to the nasty (and often-times unprofessional) back-and-forth between the Brooklyn Projects Twitter account and various Nike SB message boards, this upcoming release has had its fair share of publicity (both good and bad).
The main qualm SB heads seemed to have with the “WoF” SB Dunk Low was the “Brooklyn Projects” branding on the heel; utilizing a large print featuring the name of the LA-based skate shop, more than a few SB heads felt it was both unnecessary and unsightly. Even though it had already been stated that the version with the “Brooklyn Projects” branding on the heel was only for Brooklyn Projects’ in-store, limited edition release of the shoe, some still feared that the QS version released to everyone else would be the same. Well, put those fears to bed for good, as we bring you an image of the QS version of the “WoF” SB Dunk Low, sans BP branding on the heel.
The Nike SB Dunk Low “WoF”, as stated above, draws its inspiration from the Hollywood Walk of Fame, those 15+ blocks of sidewalk square shrines, dedicated to various entertainment legends and superstars; each square features a charcoal terrazzo (the material used in the squares that gives off that unique, spotted design) with an inlaid pink terrazzo star, featuring, in bronze, the honored’s name and a logo displaying their field of expertise. BP stuck to those attributes to a T, with the shoe featuring a black/charcoal upper that utilizes a print very similar to the one found on the actual Walk of Fame, along with pinkish-red accents in the form of premium leather on the toebox and collar, and a padded mesh tongue. Bronze accents can be found on the “Nike” branding, including the heel, the tongue tag, and the Swoosh. In this writer’s opinion, BP knocked this one out of the park, and it seems that many other SB heads agree, as this is one of the most anticipated releases of 2013, “Brooklyn Projects” on the heel or not (personally, I don’t mind the branding; it’s their shoe, why wouldn’t they want their name on it?).
Will you be copping a pair of these whenever they eventually release? Like or dislike the design? Let us know in the comments below, and enjoy a few more pics of this upcoming release after the jump!
