Luchador Flyer Dunk High
NikeSkateboarding.org just posted some pictures of what look like REALLY exciting shoes. First of all the shoes are in red,black, and white which have always been the most popular colors for shoes since Micheal Jordan started playing basketball. What makes it even more special that it is in those colors is that Jordan Is which created the big controversy in the first place were based on the Dunk Highs.
The print section is based off of fliers promoting Luchador (Mexican masked wrestling) matches. While Luchador was at it's peak of retro kitch popularity several years ago it's so cool it can't really become passe. Basically Luchador is so new sincerity that you can't get sick of it. the original interest in Luchador wasn't ironic, it was a sincere interest in kick ass masked wrestling. These shoes are flamboyant and flashy but definitely not ugly in a bad way. These shoes have me the most excited about a pair of shoes since I first saw the H.R. Pufnstuf Dunks or Supreme's Public Enemy Vans Sk8 HIs. So basically these are the most legitimately hot shoes I have posted since I started this blog, and I have a general distain for dunks.
