    via HB Originally scheduled to release back in 2006 as a Team Manager Series SB, Nike reportedly scrapped their plans for a "Gucci" themed Dunk Highdue to several complications within the participating skate camps. With less than 30 pairs in existence, they've quickly become one of pricier SB's onthe market. Three years later, it seems like Nike SB will finally release these beauties to select SB accounts, tagging them as a premium quickstrike drop. Arelease is expected in the fourth quarter of 2009. Further information should arise in the coming months.

    obviously a desperation shot to try and regenerate some life in this dead sb horse.

    if they release them release them, but don't make them some-what limited, it makes no sense.

    Being originally designed in 2006 as part of a team manager series, the Gucci Nike SB Dunk Highs were scrapped due to somedisagreements. There's said to be less than 30 sample pairs from that time in circulation right now. Luckily, Nike has decided to revive them and dropthem as a general release later this year. With no changes from the sample pair to the pair set to release this holiday season, this Gucci colorway has to beone of the best looking Nike SB Dunk Highs we've seen inyears. Be on the lookout for these in later months.

    these thoughts epitomize what's wrong with some of the shoe collecting community. why is it that the shoe becomes any less once it's madeavailable to the general public? it still looks indentical and has the exact same name, it's the same shoe. i'd love to see these drop as a gr and beavailable for retail, it would make a lot of people happy.

    Ummmm. I believe he's saying is the exact same thing you're saying. You may have interpreted it wrong. He said "Don't make themsomewhat limited" That means make them readily available.

    Or maybe its just me.
