There was a time when wearing white after Labor Day was a no-no, just as was mixing navy blue with black. But with more and more people wearing dark rinse denims as upscale casual attire, they’re being paired with black shoes with greater frequency by the day. The key is getting just the right amount of distance between the two disparate dark shades, and that’s something that Nike SB just nailed with their latest release. The Nike SB Dunk Low Pro manages a sort of ‘Michigan Away’ look with navy blue suede laid over a black underlay, the Wolverines connection perhaps deepened by that latter material’s basketball-like pebbled texture. They’re a reminder that Big Blue not wearing Swooshes is arguably more jarring than any combination of dark blue and black, and have arrived along with the other January 2012 Nike SB sneakers at select shops like CNCPTS.
