Nike SB Dunk Low Pro 'Wheat'
Styled in a colourway well-suited to the progressing autumnal months, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro ‘Wheat’ delivers throwback references to the ‘original Nike SB team nucleus’. Archive-revived aesthetics, not too dissimilar to 2002’s iconic Dunk Low Pro SB ‘Reese’ sneakers designed in partnership with legendary skater and stacks hardware pioneer Reese Forbes, pay reference to the changing seasons, whilst the profile’s boot-like undertone taps into the brand’s more recent foray into outdoor-orientated stylings.
Famed for his Nike SB Dunk Low Reese ‘Denim’ and his hessian-styled Nike SB Low Reese ‘Hunter’ sneakers from circa early 2000’s, fun-loving Reese Forbes is the one to honour when it comes to these Dunk-rosta 2020 revivals. Inspired by monochromatic palettes ‘drawn from off-board staple work boots’ popularised during the mid ‘90s, the OG 2002 Nike SB Dunk Low Pro ‘Reese’ sneakers deliveredmilitant and uniformed vibes mixed with outdoor appeal. Fast forward to 2017 and the year that Nike SB celebrated its 15th anniversary, the eclectic skateboarding subdivision set its sights once more on turning back time to honour the conceptual ‘Wheat’ silhouette. Inspired by the inversion undertaken by the Dunk Low ‘Reverse Shark’, the 2017 Dunk Low Pro SB Reverse Reese Forbes ‘switched places with its lighter tones’ to produce an all new Dunk profile that was both ‘familiar and unique’ at the same time.
Mirrored by the recent Air Force 1 ‘Wheat’ release as part of the brand’s CO.JP (Concept Japan) collection, these revitalised tan-toned sneakers set about bringing warmth and reinforced wearability to the 2020 Dunk line-up. Suited to both on and off board use, as well as for those keen on blazing trails and court-side set-ups, these earthy rewrites are well-grounded when it comes to contemporary function. Brushed-back premium grade suede in shades of flax and baroque-brown help elevate the sneaker’s inanimate composure, whilst the chocolate-hued cupsole strikes notable similarities to the fellow 2002 released Nike SB Dunk High SB Bison ‘Wheat’. Pivot-circles and enhanced underfoot tread patterns align with both the profile’s ode to basketball and its boot-like tendencies, whilst the classic perforations across the toe-box keep it well-aligned with its commitment to circulatory comfort. Nike’s innovative Zoom Air unit reigns supreme across the impact-resistant heel, whilst the foam sockliner neatly cushions beneath the puffy 6-eyelet lacing system that secures the padded ‘Nike SB Dunk Low Pro’ branded tongue against the arching foot. Deep-brown ‘Nike’ embroidery across the semi-circular ankle collar ties into the colourways grainy aesthetic, with the masqueraded side-wall Swooshes fusing with the quarter-panels for a well-rounded finish.
A ‘harvest-ready’ hue that aligns timely with the transition in climate, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro ‘Wheat’ combines utilitarian undertones with classic outerwear colourants to blend workwear heritage, outdoor inspiration and skate-specific inclination into one unique construction. With an honourable footprint that spans over 18 years of existence, Nike’s time-honoured ‘Wheat’ overtone remains unfaltered yet again.
