Special edition for Cuban Baseball League and the Almendares.The Almendares club was one of the oldest and most distinguished teams in the old Cuban League, which existed from 1878 to 1961. Almendares represented the Almendares district on the outskirts of the old city of Havana—when the league was founded it was still considered a suburban area, but later became a district within the enlarged city. Almendares was one of the most successful franchises in the Cuban League. In their early history they were known by their colors as the Blues; later they adopted the name of Alacranes or Scorpions. Throughout their existence they had a famous rivalry with Habana.
The Nike Dunk made its debut in 1985 as a technical basketball sneaker. Designed with multiple panels for support and a low profile to enhance movement on the court, the Nike Dunk was an instant hit. Plus, Nike added to their popularity by producing the Dunk in specific colorways designed to match college uniforms. After a period of cease production, the Nike Dunk returned in 1998 and is still very popular today.
