Pics leaked yesterday of a new Nike SB Dunk High, featuring premium materials (quilted leather collar; waxed laces?!?) and an interesting pattern on the tongue. With most SB Dunks, it’s fairly easy to tell if the shoe is just another General Release or a release with a backstory or inspiration behind the design (like the Nike SB Dunk Low “Firecracker Pt 2” we showed you an image of yesterday; that is not the case with this upcoming release, at least from first glance, so let the guessing game begin. Either way, this much can be said: this looks to be a very interesting release!
Featuring high-quality materials and interesting design cues, this shoe has an appearance unlike anything we’ve seen before. This Nike SB Dunk High features a black nubuck on the toebox, middle panel, lace eyelets, and swoosh, while that quilted leather collar mentioned above takes what would be a fairly simple SB Dunk to another level. A dark grey leather handles the paneling along the heel and toecap, while a strange grey print can be found on the tongue of the shoe, reminding this writer of a quilt created with the worst neck-ties in my dad’s collection. The shoe sits atop a white midsole with a black outsole, and is finished off with black waxed laces, giving this shoe a unique look.
No release date has been set for this shoe, but you can bet we’ll give you the 411 as soon as it becomes available. Any ideas as to what the inspiration is (if any) behind this SB Dunk? Let us know in the comments below, and hit the jump for more pics of this bizarre upcoming release!
