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!

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

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.

I want to see Adam Morrison sporting these in the NBA. Totally.
