The sample corner: Nike X Diamond supply co. "Tiffany" dunk low.

by Henrik Buzzi


Released in august 2005 the infamous "Tiffany" dunk low, which has become quite the grail for many  sneakerheads around the world.

But what most people don´t know, is that the shoe itself was initially made up with quite a different look. No crocodile skin and no Diamond turqoise. Instead, it featured plain black suede over a blue(!) leather base...

The sample pair would have been kept a secret had it not been for Diamond supply's own Nick Tershay, which had this to say about it while revealing it online in 2008:

"Here is a little history of the shoe design. When I first created the Diamond Dunk I just submitted the colors to Nike and they came back like this"

As we all know the shoes came out quite different after Diamond and Nike had gone trough some rounds with the product design and left us with what has become a truly classic sneaker.

Which in turn the two capitalized on, by marking the upcoming ten-year anniversary of the dunk low by releasing a dunk high version with the same colorway/material combination in March 2014.

Would you like to see the sample colorway released? Does the hightop version live up to its predecessor? Give us your thoughts below.
