Nike SB Dunk Low Pro History

Nike released the Nike Dunk in 1985 as the mashup of various shoe models. It was designed by Peter Moore and called it the College Color High. The sole has the same design with the Air Jordan 1, the upper was also inspired from the Air Jordan 1 and Nike Terminator.

The Nike Dunk became popular with the college audiences when they released the Nike College Color program in 1985. They released the school colorways to allow the fans to support their college teams from head to toe. They used the slogan “Be True to your School” to help advertise this campaign.

In 2002, Nike formed the Nike SB or their Skateboarding line. They introduced the SB Dunk Lows which are the skateboarding adaptation of the timeless Dunk basketball shoe. This line has padded tongue and collar with the Nike Zoom Air in the heel and special traction. However, this model was not embraced by the consumers well. Thus, Nike opted to introduce four other models, SB Angus, SB FC, SB Delta Force and SB URL. But just like the SB Dunk, these shoes did not sell well either.

It was in 2004 when Nike SB had its turning point. The company hired the elite skateboarder Paul Rodriguez and gave him his own pro model, the SB P-Rod. This shoe propelled the recognition of Nike SB line in the skateboarding domain. Since then Nike has not stopped in creating innovative SB shoes and partnered with several elite skateboarders.

The Nike SB Dunk has become desirable among the skaters and sneakerheads all throughout the world. Various versions have been released over the years and there is no sign anywhere that Nike is going to stop in re-imagining this iconic shoe.

Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Style

The slimmer profile of Nike SB Low Pro has a tongue that is made of mesh for breathability and to avoid overheating of the foot while in action. The upper is made of premium leather and suede that adds a luxurious look to this pair. This kick delivers cool multiple colorways, comfort and support which allow it to be the perfect pair for skating as well as for the city cruising. Casual wearers sport this shoe with their baggy jeans or shorts and oversized tees or hoodies. Riding the board, paddling the bike or doing urban stunts while wearing casual attire is possible with the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro.

Fit & Sizing

The Nike SB Dunk Low Pro has a memory foam padded collar that protects the ankle and the foot. It has a removable insole that has the Zoom Air unit for optimum shock absorption capacity. The traditional lace-up closure system is present for the personalized, secure fit. It also has the tongue centering straps which keep the tongue from twisting to the side. The cupsole of the Nike Dunk Low Pro is very much durable without sacrificing the superb board feel. The Nike SB Dunk Low Pro generally runs true to size and is exclusively offered in men’s sizes from 4 to 15 in medium width.

Notable Features

The most notable feature of the Nike SD Dunk Low Pro is the toebox that has a slimmer shape compared to the original Dunk profile. This shape is preferred by thrashers when doing their ollie to complex flip tricks. This pair also has the heel lining pods. These pods are little bumps that are responsible for securing the ankle while doing board tricks and at the same time avoids the heel slippage.

Additional Info

  • The pivot points present on the rubber outsole of the SB Dunk Low Pro allow wearers to swiftly change directions in a smooth manner. Nike also re-engineered the outsole to provide better traction and board feel.
  • The forefront has a hidden lacing system that wearers can lace through or under for the added protection while skating.
  • The toecap is double stitched which adds durability to this pair. As a result, this allows the wearer to skate with the SB Dunk Low Pro for a long period of time.
  • It has a plush panel design in the internal part of the forefoot that helps reduce the hot spots in the toebox.
  • It has an injected Phylon midsole for superior cushioning for that all-day comfort.
