Blue Lobster Nike SB Dunk Low Premium at Concepts Boston (DOPENESS TO THE 3rd DEGREE)

Awww DAMN!  It is officially lobster season once again and what better way to celebrate than with a big fat lobster roll and a new pair of Nike SB Dunk "Lobster's" on your feet while you're up in New Hampshire or Maine on vacation this summer. 

I guarantee there will be a ridiculous line for these as there was last year (some people were camped out for a full week) so be prepared if you are going to cop these joints.  Here is all the info you need from Cncpts.com.
Concepts Presents the Blue Lobster Nike SB Dunk Low Premium

The Blue Lobster Dunk will drop at Concepts on Saturday, June 20, 2009, at 11:00 am.

The Blue Lobster Dunk serves as the sequel to last summer’s original Lobster Dunk, a Nike SB that first made waves on May 31, 2008. The first “Lobster” was shipped and promoted by the “Concepts Fishing Company,” and came equipped with a poster, lobster claw rubber band, tee shirt and condiment box (replete with lobster shell cracker, fork, bib, wet nap and “butter” shoelaces) all embossed with the “Concepts Fishing Company” logo. The first 50 pairs sold were available in ultra-limited edition packaging, with all of the above-mentioned bundled up in an authentic Concepts wooden lobster trap.

This time around, it’s dangerous! The “Blue Lobster” is a dangerous sub-breed of violent crustaceans that have been wrecking havoc on the otherwise tranquil waters of New England.  Priced at $250, the actual Blue Lobster sneaker will be bagged, tagged and sealed in a HAZMAT foam container. Each pair will be joined by an official Nike SB tee shirt, hang tag and lace lock. The first 200 pairs will come with 1 of 2 Concepts x Alien Workshop skate decks.

On June 20, while in line to pick up the Blue Lobster, Concepts will also be raffling off a pair of the original Lobster from 2008. Raffle tickets will be sold for $10 each and the drawing will be held immediately following the release.

After the launch of the Blue Lobster, Concepts will host the Official Blue Lobster Party, featuring a number of special guests and performers including DJ Statik Selektah, Termanology and Masspike Miles. The “Brew Live Cruise” will take place on board the MV Freedom, docked at Rowes Wharf in Boston, MA. Boarding begins at 8:00 pm and the vessel leaves at 9:00 pm sharp! Admission is $30 and only offered to those that are 21+.

UPDATE:  Here is a nice little article from Boston.com that gives you a feel of what it was like to wait in line for the Blue Lobsters.  Madness!!!

"Finally Saturday morning came. Say changed into black, white, and aqua Nike Send Help Dunks for the occasion. Rubberneckers clogged the sidewalk. Men wearing orange hazmat suits brought a Blue Lobster shoebox, shaped like a foam cooler, to the register. Dry ice steamed out. It looked pretty cool. Concepts let the first five shoppers in."

 Here is a quick look at the original Nike SB "Lobster" Dunk Low Premium that was released last year on May 31, 2008.  Check out that authentic wooden lobster trap used for the shoe box.  SICK!!!
