Well, that’s fitting. The Nike SB Dunk Low Premium ‘Valentine’s Day’ will be releasing on the holiday that inspires its University Red and white colorway. They’re the second Premium Dunk SB to hit NikeStore in one week following Diamond’s ‘Tiffany’ Highs on Saturday, and just one of several significant drops hitting retailers this Friday. Some people were calling these a ‘St. John’s’ Low but the suede overlay has a marbled texture whose closest precedent is last year’s MIA collab and not a ‘Be True’ original. Click in for a closer view and let us know if the ‘Valentine’s Day’ Dunk SBs are among your picks for this big weekend to come.
The marble was used already in the MIA x Nike SB Dunk Low. This definitely has a precedent, and honestly it does not utilize the marble anywhere near as effectively as the MIA collab, which used the marble to look like ocean waters.
