Sneaker Freak Vol. #3 - Nike SB Dunk High QS "Lost: Oceanic Airlines"


Anybody who is a fan of the hit TV show Lost knows that the doomed flight that took our beloved "Losties" down to the island was Oceanic Flight 815. The dreaded flight left Sydney, Australia bound for LAX airport in California. Judging from the immense popularity of the show, it safe to say you know they never quite made it there. Well, they kinda did, but only after time traveling... but then they wanted to go back, so they time jumped again... but then... ahhh, forget about the crazy timeline of the show. Lets focus on the kicks  inspired by the worst airline in history:

Let me start by saying that these kicks are not my faves when it comes to the colorways. They are a little to colorful, even for me. When I Nike IDed a pair of Air Max 97's at the Nike Studio, I made "Lost Inspired" Sneakers as well. But I went for the jungle theme, using a bunch of browns and greens. These puppies are using the colors of the Oceanic Logo above, and in that case the colors are appropriated well.

The sneaker features what Nike calls Chlorine and Germaine Blue and have a white swoosh. The one thing I hate about Dunks is when the midsole is white on a sneaker that is mad colorful. This does not happen here. Nike gets this one right by making the midsole dark blue as well. The kicks come with white and pink laces... I perfer the white laces. But the craziest part about these kicks is the insoles. The feature maps of Sydney, Australia and Los Angeles, California... the original departure and destination points of Flight 815. Wow... the little things really matter. A cool homage to a really cool show. Below are some more detailed shots. You can order, or try to order these from Martini Skate and Snow. The link is below. If not, check Ebay and Flight Club. Now get out there and cop some kicks!!!!
