Back in 2003, Nike SB used ebay to auction off a customized pair of Dunk Lows that were painted to match the site’s emblem. Proceeds went to Tim Braunch Foundation, a skater who died at an early age, as well as the Portland area’s new skate parks would be built with part of the sale’s revenues, which totaled $26,000 at the listing’s final bid. Although just one pair of the aforementioned shoes was sold, there were said to be a couple pairs still around, one of which was sawed into four distinct pieces. The other was given as a retirement gift to Sandy Bodecker.
Nike SB is physically putting the pieces of the aforementioned Dunk Low back together in tribute to the life of the late Sandy Bodecker, who was responsible for creating Nike SB and making it what it is today. Nike has chosen to fill in the gaps with a see through TPU material, rather than fusing said parts together flawlessly.
The remainder of the design adheres to the original color scheme, using eBay’s distinguishing red, blue, yellow, and green tones. The left foot also has a print of Bodecker and his child on the insole, while the right has a print of the original, disassembled ebay Dunk.
