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.
Ten special box pairs will be auctioned off on eBay beginning December 7th, 2022 and will include a tribute pair of the eBay x Nike SB Dunk Low - featuring one intact pair and one that is cut into four pieces. Also included in the box are a pair of the new eBay x Nike SB Dunk Low "Sandy Bodecker" that comes with transparent windows mimcking the cut-up sneaker as well as a commemorative saw and a skateable shoe box. All net proceeds will go to the Bodecker Creative Foundation, helping support young people with educational and professional development opportunities through hands on creative programs in the areas of art, design, music, and other disciplines.
The eBay x Nike SB Dunk Low "Sandy Bodecker" is set to release via an eBay auction on December 7th, 2022 while a release through skateshops is set for December 15th. Nike SNKRS US will be releasing pairs on December 17th and retail for $130. The eBay Auction can be viewed here and will be live for the next 7 days, ending on December 14th, 2022.
