Year: 2003

The Dunk SB city rollout was a sporadic one, but it created some shoes that had kids losing their minds (2003 was when SB Dunks were white hot). When these dropped at Footpatrol in limited numbers, in an appropriately drab colorway with a stitched on River Thames on the heel, the queues were substantial and resale was wild. The resellers were out in force, but because London has a certain decorum, there wasn't a riot like the NYC Pigeon Dunk drop. Instead, people seethed, then went on the internet and bitched about queue jumpers on shoe forums instead. Still, these are good and the Slam City Dunk drop a couple of years later delivered a serviceable sequel of sorts (complete with a rub-off swoosh) too.
