This latest piece of Sneaker News can be filed under ‘long overdue’, given how many different connections were in place without this particular configuration being released until 2012. The Dunk has been done by Nike Sportswear with vulcanized soles in recent years, as have a number of successful Nike SB models. But the Nike SB Dunk stayed true to its cupsole, only adding an improved material composition and updated traction pattern early last year along with a few hidden improvements. But with an apparent reorganization of SB and Nike 6.0 looming, and Six themselves offering the autoclaved Dunk SE 6.0, this now becomes a shoe that pretty much has to happen. The Dunk SB Vulc sticks to its guns with a Zoom Air-enhanced insole, though, despite many Swoosh skateboarding models making the jump to LunarLon. Did they make the right choice, or would you rather have seen some combination of the classic cupsole and/or a LunarLon footbed? Let us know when you click through to see more of this crisp black and white pair and stick with Sneaker News for the US release date.
