Throughout its 19-year history, Nike SB has drawn inspiration for its silhouettes from virtually everywhere, including legendary musical acts and kid’s folk stories. Additionally, the skate-oriented category has borrowed themes and technologies from elsewhere under the NIKE, Inc. umbrella. Case in point: A Nike SB Dunk Low clad in a “Laser Blue” transplanted from an original Nike Air Max 90.
Akin to a pair that launched at select retailers in January 2020, the forthcoming sneaker indulges in a white, grey and black arrangement across most of its construction. Ankle overlays and profile swooshes nod to Tinker Hatfield’s visible Air-cushioned design, sporting black smooth leather and light grey suede, respectively. Accents across the top of the tongue and heel overlay, as well as the entire Air Jordan 1 Low-like outsole, deviate from the muted color palette in a bold, ’90s-appropriate blue, exchanging its predecessor’s “Infrared” look.
