Sneak Peek: Nike Dunk High Strap 'Questlove'
Following up from his Air Force 1 release in 2008, Questlove hit the scene again with this unique Dunk High. The silhouette, as you can see, is not the normal Dunk High- it includes a lace cover with artificial buttons. This cover, along with other subtle details, makes this dunk different from the more standard releases we have seen in recent years.

Nike Dunk High Strap
Style # 415924 601
Created in three colors, red, yellow, and black, the red was by far the most popular. The black and yellow pairs did not have the distinctive lace cover. The buttons on the lace cover actually serve no purpose as it is secured by velcro. But, they do match nicely with the swoosh and sole.
Of course no Questlove shoe would be complete without his signature on the tongue as well as insole. The leather is top notch and buttery smooth. With the addition of a leather heel collar, this shoe is very comfortable.
Personally, I love this shoe, but that includes some bias as Questlove is originally a Philly native with his bands, The Roots. Bias aside, I think he created another success that was well thought out and executed perfectly. Even so, only time will tell if Nike will collaborate with Questlove again and which silhouette they will choose.
