Serious question guys: wtf is happening to Nike SB?
To clarify:

in the last 15 months, we've gotten reboots (and rereboots) of four major collaborative efforts...in this thread we had hypothesized that the way to make Nike SB desirable again was to cut back on the garbage GRs (which they definitely did), reboot the SYL collabs (which they did), and drop original creative designs...obviously this didn't happen.

Nike did the ol' lets throw a celeb in an underperforming model and see what happens.

This pic sums up my feelings towards Jeff Staple

Imo the panda dunks & black pigeons both suck but I feel bad for the people that want these shoes.

face it though, Jeff is a one trick pony(pigeon in this case) dude has been rehashing the same crap over and over his entire career.

besides the navigation pack 90’s what has he ever done besides put pigeons on crap and cash a check off?

please remind us again for the uptenth time how your shoe caused a riot in 05’
On top of that the way these guys are acting with their fake altruism is really rubbing me the wrong way.

Nicky Diamonds having a police escort for his canaries and saying he can't believe people are acting that way, Staple constantly bringing up the riot thing, etc. These guys are so desperate for the limelight it's nauseating.

I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I like seeing this resurgence in the brand. It's nice seeing skateshops have more business and foot traffic and it's generally kind of cool seeing more people interested in dunks, even though most are getting back into it for the wrong reasons lol.

Biggest negative for me.. I had to stop my weekly/monthly routine of searching for older SBs. Prices are stupid right now lmfao

The worst part of this.

I bought barfs (not the true stuffed tongue, granted) for 65 bucks shipped from eBay last year

Agree with this here. As a patron of the brand for the last ten years, I'm happy to see others enjoying it the same way I did at first. I'm glad dunks never died to me because I was able to track down almost everything I wanted for reasonable prices in the last few years. Definitely have some regrets about moving some but I used to do a lot of trading.

On the contrary, they lost me as a customer for their new products yeeeaaaars so I could really care less what they do now because I'm not buying haha

I must've been searching for the wrong stuff.. I was mostly always checking for stuff I had during the pink box era and the prices were kind of high lol it's just worst now.
