    I'm not sure how many sneaker heads we've got on this forum, but I'm wondering what you guys think of the new Golf Dunk SBs.

    I think they could look really fresh if worn with the right outfit. I'm definitely copping a pair, and I can't wait to hit the links with them this summer.

    I think they would look rediculous anywhere else but the golf course...unless you take off the top part. The perforations are kinda fresh though.

    They would look particualrly ridiculous on a golf course, unless you can get soft spikes in the bottom, there.

    Agree with VENDER. The perfs, pastels, and even the heel argyle are alright, but the kiltie is a tough sell.

    My opinion is unfavorable, but since I am neither a sneakerhead (at least not of the Nike variety) nor a golfer, I am not sure my opinion is of much value to you... do not read on if you are sensitive on the subject!

    If I saw those at the end of my legs, I would set my feet on fire and chop them off with an axe!

    I agree - and the yellow swoosh actually saves them from looking like some sort of old-man compromise semi-prosthetic shoe. aren't the top parts called "kilties"?

    Removable soft spikes on the bottom would be dope![​IMG]

    I wouldn't wear them, but they would be great for a sneaker collector.

    I think they look okay except for the top. It's called a kiltie? I like the colors as well as the perforations.

    Interesting shoe to have for a collector, but I wouldn't hide my grin if i saw them.

    I'd wear them because they're absurd.

    It's very Japanese schoolgirl, somehow.

    Garbage. I'm a avid fan of the Nike Dunk, but only the well-done colorways, and this is definately shit. Next thing the dunk will not only be a basketball, skateboard and golf shoe, but a ballet pump as well. The Nike Air Dunk Ballet [​IMG]

    I'm not a Dunk fan (though I do own a pair of Hunter SBs, which are really, really cool), but regardless, these are beyond hideous.

    Being the sneakerhead that I am...i gotta say that these aren't the best from Nike

    I will say though, the toungue this is removable, and the shoe becomes a lot more presentable when taken off. Also, the apparel that Nike has designed to match this shoe is actually really nice.

    Not the best from Nike...once again

    Perfect for the golf court.
    Heh, exactly.
