Its been sometime since we dropped news on the latest sneaker releases.
We usually like to keep it to a minimum, and to only report on kicks that we would only wear ourselves. We prefer to leave it up to all the rest of the sneaker nerds to battle it out for supremacy. Reporting on the release of this new skate high from Nike SB is more for nostalgic reasons than anything else.

Entitled the “Twin Peaks” High, the dunk pays tribute to the short lived
(30 episodes to be exact), cult TV show which originally aired on ABC from
1990-1991 by creator and producer David Lynch. When this show was in syndication, we completely geeked on in. It was the equivalent to what
“Lost” is today- except a hell of a lot darker and twisted.


Inspired by the show’s dream-scape “Black Lodge” located in the fictitious Ghostwood Forest, the dunk features premium leather, suede, nubuck and synthetic upper, rubber outsole and a symbolic owl hit on the side. These are a definite collectible! The blue owl signifies the entrance to the Black Lodges extra-dimensional realm. The interior is lined in red with a zig-zag pattern insole representing the “Red Rooms” curtains and geometric carpet. Let’s not forget about that eerie little fellow, the unnamed “Man From Another Place”.

Its much to involved and bizarre to attempt a brief explaination on the premise of the “Twin Peaks” phenomenon, so we suggest that you take some time and do a little research. Otherwise bust out the goobers and make a movie night out of it. You won’t be disappointed! Set to release this month, the SB Twin Peaks have already landed at a variety of boutiques and will soon appear at…you guessed it Special Sauce.
