The “Tiffany” Nike SB Dunk Low is regarded as one of the most beautiful SB Dunks of all time. The striking kicks, designed by Nick Tershay (aka Nicky Diamond) of Diamond Supply Co., dropped as part of 2005’s Team Manager series, for which Nike tapped premier skate brands to create exclusive interpretations of the iconic Nike Dunk SB.
Dressed in crocodile-embossed black leather with vibrant Tiffany Blue panels, Tershay described his Tiffany Nike SB Dunk Lows as the most hyped and luxurious shoe of its era. In fact, the pair was influential enough to earn Tershay a 2013 follow-up collab—a high-top version of the Nike Dunk SB, in the same colorway—and a further collaboration in 2018 featuring three new colorways with the same motifs.
It’s no wonder then that sneaker collector Nes Vasquez was so drawn to the pair.
“I spent a lot of time at sneaker stores, so when I saw the Diamond Supply Co. x Nike SB Dunk Low Pro ‘Tiffany,’ I thought they were dope and copped them.”
But he didn’t stop there—that same year, Vasquez had started crystallizing sneakers, spending upwards of 16 hours to meticulously apply different sized crystals to each pair.
“I thought the Tiffany SB Dunks would look even doper with the Swarovski Black Diamond,” he told us. The result? An iconic sneaker, made even more so with the custom addition of black Swarovski crystals filling the Swoosh.
They’re a pair that I customized for the love of the sneaker and my craft
So why part with them now? (Not that we’re complaining…the custom Nike SB Dunk Lows are a rare and exciting find for collectors.) “I feel like it’s time for these classics to go with someone that loves them and my work as much as I do,” Vasquez said. “Also,” he added, “I’m not a size 13.”
