25. HUF x Nike SB Trainer 1 "Gold Digger"
Retail Price: $100
Issue: October/Nov 2005
The Gold Rush is one of the most important parts of San Francisco history (and we're not talking just the name 49ers). Back when designer Benny Gold was working for HUF, he designed the "Gold Digger" version of the Nike SB Trainer 1. The Gold Digger Trainer uses a creative layering system to portray the way gold would shine from underneath the sand while panning. Benny used mesh laid over a shiny gold patent that reflects from underneath as the light hits. The Trainer 1 was then given HUF branding complete with pick and shovel on the heel to further rep The City and its heritage.
