Better get some After-Bite for those gross ass mosquito dunks! Nike could name a dunk "shit" or "vomit", And somehow color it that way? People would buy that shit up like it's going out of fucking style! Fuck Nike, support real skateboard companies/brands.

Nike tried before with skate shoes. Then they tried to disguse it by calling it Savier. But now it's stupid. Vans,DVS,Lakai,Es',Etnies,Emerica or what the fuck ever brand that is dedicatied to skaters is what you should support.

So if Nike is so bad and evil - how come Vans, DVS, Lakai, ES, Etnies have never gave the opportunity to collaborate with a local MN artist and shop to create their own state inspired colorway? Who cares what shoes are on your feet, if they skate well for you then go for it. Nike isn't going anywhere, get used to it.

Ramp Jam didn't NIke pay for the bus and the Beer? Secondly who puts more FREE shoes on all the heads in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Looks like Nike does give back to the skaters.

Vans, Es', Etnies, and Emeric are ALL corporate backed (look it up). Isn't this argument dead yet. Seriously, it has been going on for like 20 years. If you don't believe that 80% of the current skate industry has sold out and is corporate (I would say DLX is the only major skate company that is still privately owned), then you are living a lie. Nike seems to have done a lot for the local Mpls skate and art scene. This dunk is design by a local artist and skate shop. What other shoe company has done that for MPLS (I think DC did it once, but come on, DC makes moon boots)? More then ever skateboarding has become a business. The days of Rocco (World), Ternasky (H-street/Plan B), and other grass root skateboard companys is long gone. Now it is all about the bottom line, not the progression of skateboarding. I am stoked for Evil Pat and The Surf. Anytime a huge corporate giant takes time to support the local scene, I believe is a good thing. Now watch this (http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com/) and concern yourself with a much larger problem.
