As is the custom, Nike SB has once again switched up their packaging. Gone is the taped up box-in its stead this new turquoise and white creation. That specific color combo no doubt has a lot of you reminiscing over the classic Nike SB Dunk Low “Tiffany” from Diamond Supply Co. whose colors aren’t too far off, and it even has some speculating regarding a possible retro release of that silhouette. It’s unclear at this point when the switch will be made, but keep in mind a new Nike SB box is indeed on its way.

This is not going to be the color of the new box, that is a color alteration of what it actually is. If you were around in the Nike SB blue box days you would know that before the From The Future box, there was rumor of a red SB box. That was obviously not the case as the red box was for the NSW shoes. This powder blue box is either a test sample, a color alteration like I already said, or a specially made box just for one pair of shoes. This WILL NOT be the actual color of the box next year.
I know it's nothing to be upset about but the last "tape" box was pretty lame. I love the new red NSW ones and these look nice too. Glad they switched.
If this is any indication, it is that the new (not retro) Diamond Supply Co X Nike SB collab is coming soon.
