Named after the endless amounts of bubble gum chewed in baseball dugouts, the Nike SB ‘Bubble Gum’ pack pays creative homage to four of the most widely recognised baseball teams of all time; the Philadelphia Phillies, the LA Dodgers, the SF Giants and the New York Mets.
Known for their New York Gothams origins and their on-going rivalry with the LA Dodgers, the San Francisco Giants arrive as the latest addition to Nike SB’s ‘Bubble Gum’ pack. One of the oldest and most successful MLB teams to date with more wins than any team in the history of American sports, this creative homage follows on from previous Giants themed releases such as 2010’s Nike SB Dunk High and the Nike SB SF Giants Dunk Low.
The second high top of the pack, the Nike SB Dunk High Pro ‘San Francisco Giants’ is styled with neutral coloured suede uppers with durable mesh underlays. The black side wall Swoosh features contrast orange stitching in honour of the team’s home uniform, whilst classic Dunk features include a full length cupsole stitch, a white midsole and a black rubber outsole styled with a bubble gum splatter reference. Puffy laces secure the padded mesh tongue in place, whilst both an integrated Zoom Air unit and padded collars provide further support. Finished with printed insoles and with under-tongue graphics that pay homage to both Oracle Park’s record-setting statue and to the kayaking fans of McCovey Cove.
Seven time World Series Champions and known for their Brooklyn Atlantics heritage, the Los Angeles Dodgers are known for being one of the most iconic MLB teams of all time. Pioneering many firsts for the sport such as the first MLB team to have numbers on the front of their uniforms and the first to use batting helmets, this latest homage follows on from their recent ‘City Connect’ uniform collaboration with Nike in 2021 and as a compliment to the soon to be released Nike Dunk Low ‘Jackie Robinson’, a tribute to the first African-American to play in the Major Leagues since 1884.
Known for their iconic team kit colourway that has remained relatively unchanged since the ‘30s, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro ‘Los Angeles Dodgers’ is styled with white leather uppers with Dodger Blue coloured suede overlays. Exposed Swoosh stitching resembles the woven seams of a baseball, whilst the full-length cupsole features a white rubber midsole and a gum rubber outsole that’s detailed with the same bubble gum underfoot detailing as its pack counterparts. A perforated toe box increases airflow, whilst the puffy laces secure the padded mesh tongue in place for a securer fit. Styled with Nike’s pioneering Zoom Air insoles for added cushioning and with custom printed insoles. Finished with embroidered ‘Nike’ heel panels and with under-tongue references to both LA’s palm tree landscape and the Dodger Stadium’s infamous ‘Welcome’ sign.
A uniform that has seen numerous comebacks since its World Series debut, the ‘80s era Phillies team jersey remains the focus of this latest Nike SB Dunk. Pastel blue suede uppers pay tribute to the uniform worn by the team, whilst burgundy and white leather Swooshes mimic the retro ‘P’ logo seen embroidered across each chest. Perforations across the toe box provide increased airflow, whilst interchangeable puffy laces secure the OG padded mesh tongue in place. A full length cupsole stitch details the white midsole, whilst the gum rubber outsole features a pink bubble gum print across the right sneaker in honour of the pack’s dugout reference. A classic circular underfoot tread fuses the shoe’s basketball, baseball and skateboarding narrative, whilst an integrated Nike Zoom Air Unit delivers additional cushioning and impact support across each heel. Finished with iconic references to the city of Philadelphia's Liberty Bell and the renowned Philly Cheesesteak legacy sewn beneath each tongue, printed insoles and with embroidered white ‘Nike’ branding sewn across each burgundy ankle patch.
The New York Mets Dunk High follows on from skater Danny Supra’s original New York Mets themed Dunk Low from 2002 with a jersey-like colourway that merges reference to both the iconic New York Dodgers and the Giants. Winning their first World Series against the Baltimore Orioles in 1969, the Mets’ base in Queens’ Citi Field Stadium is one renowned for its Home Run Apple, Jackie Robinson Rotunda and inspiring Hall of Fame.
A replication of the team’s away kit, a colourway ultimately inspired by the Mets’ National League takeover from the Brooklyn Dodgers and the NY Giants, the Nike SB Dunk High ‘New York Mets’ Premium features grey suede uppers with colour matched canvas underlays for additional abrasion support. A full length cupsole stitch complements the white midsole and the gum rubber circular tread outsole, whilst a pink bubble gum print across the sole of the right sneaker is in keeping with the pack’s bubble gum and dugout reference. Puffy and interchangeable laces secure the padded ‘Nike SB Dunk High Pro’ tongue in place, whilst blue and orange-red side wall Swooshes mimic authentic jersey patches, cartoonist Ray Gotto’s original ‘Mets’ logo and the jersey’s arching ‘New York’ Tiffany-font branding. Under the left tongue, an embroidered 7-train logo pays creative reference to the MTA subway line that connects Willets Point Blvd. station to both Flushing Main St. and Hudson Yards, whilst the right tongue features a red apple ‘Home Run’ graphic that highlights both the team’s original skyline logo and the Citi Field Stadium’s infamous pop-up apple. Finished with a blue lined inner, padded collars, a built-in Zoom Air Unit and with embroidered pull tabs sewn across each heel.
