Nike SB Dunk Fat Tongue to Return
[/h2]
Posted by Alex Kroviak | Mar 5, 2010



[table][tr][td]
Nike SB Dunk releases has been criticized in the last few seasons because of the disappearance of the fat tongue. If you’ve lost favor in the line because of the tongu switch, Kevin Imamura from Nike SB broke the news that the fat tongue will return.

Imamura was not specific as to which shoe will serve as the first to re-debut the feature, or even during which season it will occur. However, does the sheer knowledge that the fat tongue is coming back have the value of Nike SB stock rising?

Might as well just Retro the old sb's. Fat tongues or not the best days are behind them.

Most folks would agree sb's have lost their luster apart from a few scattered overhyped releases.

crazy seeing most of the people here agree on retroing sb's, i was on ISS earlier this week and there was a thread talking about if nike should retro sb's, the whole website went crazy lol. i decided to post because i really didnt see a problem with it, all they cared about was the value of the shoe going down and things like that. like damn dont you want the chance to buy the kicks and colorways you love again, and at retail?? people buying kicks for all the wrong reasons..

& nike sb's tongue return is good news but of course better designs and colorways should come first.

i feel you on that one
they finally did something for the consumers, well actually, they did something because they definitely weren't making money off sb's with out the fat tounges 
 too bad we all won't stop buying shoes because of poor quality, just think of what they could improve on..
