One of the rarest Nike SBs of all time is set to return... reconstructed.
Rare Nike SB's are nothing new, but there is rare and then there is unobtainable. The Nike SB Dunk Low eBay fits in the latter category, but a recent post by the late Sandy Bodecker's foundation points to a possible release soon. Well... kind of.
For those unfamiliar, in 2003 the Nike SB Dunk Low eBay was auctioned off in support of the Tim Brauch Foundation and Portland skate parks for $30k. The winner of the auction got a 1-of-1 pair the patent leather dunk in their desired size. To ensure that there was only one pair of the eBay SB Dunk, Nike cut the samples that the sneaker was based on upon delivery of the SB to its owner. Interestingly enough, it later came to light that Sandy Bodecker was the owner of the Nike SB Dunk Low eBay's. According to Sandy's IG comments, he was the original winner of the 2003 auction.
Fast forward to today, Boedecker's foundation has shared a pair of Nike SB Dunk Low eBay's that resemble the originals, literally. It seems as though the pair that is set to release will draw inspiration from the cut up sample rather the the 1-of-1 pair that is assumed to still be with Bodecker's estate. Three white lines extend from the sole of the sneaker through the upper and the upper shows signs of fraying along the faux cut seams to make it look as though the sneaker has been cut and reconstructed.
No release details have been shared, but one can assume that the sneaker will be released via an auction and benefit Bodecker's foundation.
