Quartersnacks For Nike SB

quartersnacks dunk low

Every Nike SB collaboration has a bit of a “story” to it. We could sit here and peddle some narrative where everyone wears all black to hide the dirt from skating the city all day, and how all the reflective details make you stand out between the cabs while night skating, but that’d be nonsense.

If you read this site enough, you should have known that we’d go fashion over concept from the very beginning. For example, the Chromeball Dunk had an awesome story behind it, but we live in New York — we get shunned for wearing earthtones out here. Between all the luxury brand inspired colorways and New York Post headline-inducing mini riots, the greatest SB Dunk to date (at least for purely skateboarding purposes) was the simplest one of all. It was the Weiger shoe: black pig suede with a white check. Every person affiliated with this website had at least two pairs of it.

A black skate shoe never falls out of fashion or function. That was our template.

From then on, it was only a matter of how many fancy details we could get away with. QS has always been about appreciating the subtler side of skateboarding, and it made sense to not go overboard with loud branding. Thanks to Alex Dymond, Andre Page, Mike Cherman and everyone at Nike SB who made this possible, but more importantly, thanks to all you guys who visit the site and have made it respected enough to give this collaboration any motion to begin with.

The Quartersnacks Dunk Low will be available at skate shops on Saturday, 8/23.

  • By far the best colorway I’ve seen. The only other dunk colorway I was ever psyched on was the Aqua Blue/Light Grey.

  • Is this your first collaboration with Nike? I saw QS branded dunks in Seoul last month at a shop called Kasina.

  • They are sick. Too bad these will be sold out before I can ever get them. Too bad my local shop only sells vans and longboards.

  • They’ll give shoes to just about everybody now won’t they! Just kidding – congrats to you, Quartersnacks.

    Way to represent!

    To ‘damn': Get a new local shop.

  • Ha, that’s out of our hands. It’s “suggested” retail price, not mandatory retail price :(
