Nike SB Dunk Low “Shanghai” – 2004 vs. 2013 Comparison
The retro-ing of classic Nike SB silhouettes continues with this, the return of the Nike SB Dunk Low “Shanghai”. Not quite ten years later and the shoe is being re-issued. For what it’s worth the return is one that looks to stay pretty true to the initial release. Notable differences include a slightly darker suede on the 2013 version and a different print for the insole (Not to mention this year’s iteration is slightly lighter). Continue reading to get a super in-depth look at the Nike SB Dunk Low “Shanghai” 2004 vs 2013 and then let us know which pair you’d rather have in your collection.
IM OPTIMISTIC THAT THESE ARE GONNA SEE THE LIGHT OF DAY BEYOND CHINA AND EBAY!!!! IF THESE DO COMEOUT ITS WILL BE THE DEATH OF NIKE SB MARK MY WORDS.... RETRO = WE RAN OUT OF IDEAS
man the 2013 model looks fake horribly made i wont be coppin gabage material and both sneakers look so different in the pics smh. nike wants to charge more and give out less just like jb is made thats y i stopped collecting jordans sneakers just arent the same no more.
I don't know. I'd probably pick the 04 if given a choice. You know the suede on these just wont be anywhere near close. Sad how cheap nikes getting..glue spots and real thin leather these days...ill possibly go with the older releases from now on. Prices will likely be the same with the resellers fucking the market over
The 04s have more pop to them and standout more to me, but on the 2013s on the burgundy the design is more visible. I see the future now, Nike will now start to retro classic sb models and dunks, examples of past re-releases Supreme sb's, Viotech dunks and now the Shanghai sb's. Watch the hype and demand return lmao, good and bad news.
Just a heads up y'all - I was scammed on Fear 5 preorder... don't want to see it happen to any of you. Best to go with a reputable seller and not them #SoleSeriouss
fu*k the pattern or the gold, had the 04 and quality and comfort isn't comparable to any 2010 + dunk
these 2013 will be limited I believe so if I had to choose to pay 250+$ I'd pick '04 100%
Idk how you would want to cop these after looking at these pics. The quality in the '13s look terrible compared to the '04 version. It looks like it was just thrown together. Look at the 4th comparison for the eyelets, then the 6th comparison on page 2, '13s looks like shit compared to the '04s. The Air Holes on the front look more centered on the '04s opposed to the the '13s. The swoosh looks a little gold on the '04s, cheaper material on the '13s. The new shoe box even kills me. They even open the shoe so you can see the stitching all the way through, new ones look like they'll deteriorate faster. Look at the shoe lace tips its like they're telling us the new version is crap. Pay attention ppl.
In a way its a bitter sweet thing seeing Nike retro the SB's. The sweet is you might get a chance to get your hands on some of the best SB's that were released in the past, the bitter is all the people who wrote off SB Dunks will all of sudden become "FANS" of them once they see Rappers & ball players wearing them. #ONLYMYOPINION
@LUX09NC the supreme sb's weren't a rerelease they used the same cement and the black swoosh but used red instead. Nobody cares about viotech they're not sb's. The Shanghai seems to be the only rerelease because its part of this years shanghai pack.
@Fromen sounds like you're seeing what you want to see homeboy.
Well said. One can only imagine what the hype will be around SBs again if the classic hype magnets like the Dunkles (Unkles), or Supreme Dunk highs get retroed.
@ohshit_itstonio i like the color better on the 04 but other from that i agree
@InAntWeTrust Maybe.. Colorway is definitely dope and I'd love to cop, but I just don't see the same quality in the new ones.. its aggravating. If they were going to re-release it I think they should have produced the same shoe. Same way. I wont knock you if you cop em tho. Its not like they're fake, or Payless quality, I just couldn't do it personally.
