Rollerblades are a funny thing. No, really, they are. Take a look at someone using them the next time you see them rollerblading through the park. You’ll probably laugh and wonder, “How were those all the craze back in the day? Didn’t people realize what a silly fad they were?” But then, you’ll look a little closer at the person and think, “Then again, rollerblading does look sort of fun. Maybe I pick up a pair and…” Hopefully, at that point, you’ll cut yourself off and stop yourself from impulsively purchasing yet another fitness toy that’ll get lost in the back of your closet. And, instead, you’ll pick up a pair of the brand-new Nike SB x Skate Mental Dunk Hi LR “Rollerblades” sneaker.

Recently, the Skate Mental skateboard company teamed up with the Nike SB team to create a new version of the Nike Dunk Hi LR that’s designed to look just like a rollerblade. The midsole of the sneaker has rollerblade wheels painted onto it and the strap across the top has what appears to be the buckle of a rollerblade painted onto it. The rest of the sneaker is, more or less, just a plain old black and white Nike Dunk Hi LR. but, when you’re walking down the street in a pair of these, we can pretty much guarantee that you’ll get one or two laughs out of anyone who sees them.

If you’re interested in picking up a pair and turning some heads, look for these to drop later this month. Unfortunately, they’ll only be available through select Nike SB retailers. But, we’re sure that there will be a bunch of online shops that make them available, too. So, if you’re into rollerblades or even just the idea of rollerblades, go ahead and order a pair of these instead of actually going out and buying rollerblades. Trust us: You’ll get the same funny, inquisitive looks that you’d get if you strapped some rollerblades to your feet. And, you won’t worry about breaking a wrist or an ankle in the process.
