It’s hard to believe that it’s already been 15 years since Nike SB transformed the Dunk Low for a more skate-ready feel. After yesterday’s huge announcement that a number of shops would be participating in an exclusive raffle giving away a chance at some of the most iconic Dunk colorways ever, it’s only right that Nike News hit us with the next evolution of the legendary model. Malto’s exclusive colorway will be available from Nike.com and select retailers on March 2nd while a general release launch option featuring grey and blue will follow on March 9th.The Nike SB Dunk Elite Low “Grey/Blue” is also rooted in the history of Nike SB, as it references a sample that then GM of Nike SB Sandy Bodecker took around to skate shops back in 2002.
This pair better represents the freshly re-engineered upper with an overhauled lightweight feel. A larger Zoom Air bag hits the midsole for maximum impact absorption while the shoe is comprised of a one-piece upper with a seamless construction.You’ll have to wait until March 2nd to grab this updated Nike SB Dunk Elite Low, but check out more detailed shots below and stay tuned for more Nike SB updates on Nike.com.
UNDERCOVER‘s Jun Takahashi has been one of Japan’s most influential designers for his ability to not only buck trends, but to create them through contemporary simplicity and a knack for head-turning aesthetics. You’ve seen this countless times with the ongoing Nike Gyakusou running collections, an homage to Jun’s love and daily ritual of running recontextualized as fashionable apparel. Now Jun’s latest creation combines three seemingly unconnected Nike offerings in the Nike Dunk, Nike Jungle Boot, and Nike Air Huarache for the UNDERCOVER Nike Jungle Dunk, available in two colorways on January 28th from NikeLab locations.
