Named after the endless amounts of bubble gum chewed in baseball dugouts, the Nike SB ‘Bubble Gum’ pack pays creative homage to two of the most widely recognised baseball teams of all time; the Philadelphia Phillies and the New York Mets. An on-going rival of the NY Mets, the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Phillies’ keeps the Citizens Bank Park team’s memorable 1980’s World Series victory against the Kansas City Royals centred at the heart of its design. A city known for being the home of the Liberty Bell, as the country’s Mural Capital and their ‘City of Brotherly Love’ nickname, Philadelphia’s influence across this Nike SB skate shoe hosts a narrative similar to skater Jamal Smith’s latest adidas Adimatic.
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.
