If you ever doubted that Gibson had sole, we have proof for you. Nike had decided to, if you'll excuse the expression, amp up their marketing strategy of releasing the sock equivalent of some their famous Dunks. Instead of being inspired by skateboards, these particular kicks harkens back to rock's raucous past. 

An upcoming 2008 version of Nike SB Dunk Low is being modeled after a vintage Gibson guitar case made by Lifton from 1947-1960, breezily referred to as "the California girl." And no, we are not going to explain why, you're just going to have to figure that out yourself. But the cases that were billed as "Built Like a Fortress" encased most 1958 Sunburst Les Pauls and had a rich brown outside (like a tanned California girl), and a very plush and rich pink inside. To mimic this rather naughty burst of creativity, Nike has created a Dunk out of brown leather, with a pink fur lining and pink laces.
