The next kicks in Nike’s music pack are scheduled to launch in the Spring of 2008. The “Marshall Amp” Nike SB Dunk High features a Black/Gold/Red design that is inspired by the colors of a Marshall Amp Stack. Now I even admit I think Nike is stretching a bit here but I like the concept.

‘Marshall amplifiers are well known and highly popular among guitarists. The sight and sound of a Marshall stack amp with a Gibson Les Paul or Fender Stratocaster is an iconic image in pop culture. Marshall amps were originally built as direct copies of Fender amplifiers, but soon incorporated certain traits which made them more favorable to guitarists seeking a heavier sound.’

‘The classic Marshall Stack is one of the defining images behind loud rock music. A full stack consists of one head containing the actual amplifier, on top of two stacked 4x12s, which are loudspeaker cabinets each containing four 12 inch loudspeakers arranged in a square layout. The top cabinet has the top two loudspeakers angled slightly upwards, giving the Marshall stack a distinctive appearance.’-Wikepedia
