Who should buy the Nike SB Dunk Low

Apart from sneaker fans who enjoy the timeless look of the Nike SB Dunk Low, this shoe is also for:

  • Skaters looking for footwear with a superb board feel, which will allow them to perform their ollies and kickflips efficiently.
  • Users who love the impact protection features of Zoom Air
  • People searching for all-around footwear.

Who should NOT buy it

  • If traction is your utmost priority, this sneaker might not be the one for you. Check out some of Nike's vulcanized skate sneakers for alternative options. 
  • If you prefer day-one comfort, this shoe might disappoint you. Like most cupsole kicks, it will take a little longer to get accustomed to its fit. 

Nike SB Dunk Low: Staying authentic to its lineage's comfort level

As mentioned by many reviewers, there's great coziness throughout the shoe. It is covered with a thickly stuffed tongue, padded collar, and cushioned insole, perfect for skaters and nonskaters alike. In fact, this low-top version has more cushioning than the original high-top silhouette released earlier as a basketball shoe.

From the streets to the skateboards

The Nike SB Dunk Low demand was phenomenal as it was widely accepted among skaters, sneaker enthusiasts, and collectors globally. The original four colorways of the SB Dunk Low remain among the favorite classic profiles in Nike's archive, with many variations that continue to come out until today.

Guards your foot as you smash and clash

The Zoom Air insole takes impact very well as it provides the needed cushioning and protects the heel against bruises. This innovative technology is also seen in a wide array of athletic shoes, such as running kicks Nike Zoom Air Pegasus 38, and tennis shoes Nike Air Zoom Victory Tour 2

Maneuvering the skateboard has never been this easy

A lot of skaters love that it does not take much force to flick the board with the SB Dunk Low, especially on the first month of skating with it.

Can definitely keep up with almost any physical stress

The SB Dunk Low has a durable cover with several layers and a thick rubber cupsole. Users love how these sneakers held up well after subjecting them to all-day skate sessions and daily usage.

Deeply grooved but not that grippy

Despite the deep grooves in its sole, the Nike SB Dunk Low isn't too sticky, as complained by users.
