Although the Nike SB Dunk Low arguably had a quieter year than it did in 2020 (remember the “Chunky Dunky”?), the beloved silhouette has emerged in handfuls of compelling styles prepped for 2022. Among the teased and rumored colorways is a vibrant green take scheduled to release in honor of St. Patrick’s Day.
While not Nike SB‘s first attempt at honoring the March 17th date, the upcoming sneakers may be the category’s boldest. High-quality suede throughout the upper is dipped in a four leaf clover-reminiscent green, while profile swooshes and branding on the tongue label and heel deviate in a contrasting shimmering gold tone. Lateral heels feature an embroidered four leaf clover, which was absent on the near-identical Nike SB Dunk High pair launched on St. Patrick’s Day 2013. Underfoot, things are kept simple as a white midsole couples with fan-favorite light gum brown outsole for an arrangement that allows the shoe’s top-half to revel in the spotlight.
Elsewhere under the Swoosh umbrella, the Air Max 1 celebrates its 35th anniversary in the new year.
