The Nike SB Dunk Low “Skate or Die” was designed after the classic 1987 Nintendo Skate or Die video game artwork. To those that don’t remember the classic game, it pretty much was the Tony Hawk of the 80s. Featured two ramp events, the freestyle, the downhill race, the downhill jam, and the pool joust.
The Nike SB Dunk Low “Skate or Die” features swirls, shapes and colors matching the actual 1987 cover to the video game case (seen below). Black leather hits the toe box and side panel while a vibrant Aqua Blue suede, Neon Yellow Swoosh and Orange bottom outsoles bring the shoes to life. They were only sold at select Nike SB accounts in limited quantities that came with an extra pair of laces. If you missed out on these in ’08, you can now find some size-runs available on eBay.
