CONCRETE DUNKS (2004) Between June and November 2004, 10 pairs of concrete Dunks were made and secretly placed in front of various stores in North America and Europe. The stores were selected on their involvement with popular street culture. The concrete dunks are all numbered and contain a card with the release date on it. After the last pair was placed the molds were destroyed to ensure exclusivity. [via IHAVEPOP]
