Arriving as part of the Nike SB ‘J-Pack’ line, these Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Shoes have a distinctive black and pine green colourway and include staple features for comfort and a fit that is made for skating. Made from smooth nubuck, the uppers are mostly black with a pine green coloured vamp that is perforated for ventilation and stand out elongated Swoosh ticks cut from leather that continue around the back of the heel. Secured by black cotton laces, the highly cushioned tongue has a breathable mesh top layer and padded underside with a woven Nike SB label attached around its top edge. Embroidered onto an additional panel on the back of the heel, bold ‘NIKE’ lettering matches the same pine green tone. Throughout the inside a textile lining has been added for further comfort and a Nike Zoom Air unit can be found in the heel for responsive cushioning. The two tone flexible rubber outsole provides ample grip through a custom tread pattern that differs between the front of the foot and the heel in addition to a circular pivot point.
Dating back to the mid 2000s, the Nike SB ‘J-Pack’ is celebrated by both skateboards and basketball fans which hints at the origins and future of the Dunk Low. Recognised through colour block palettes that result in simple but effective aesthetics, an ongoing focus is on giving more through less whilst enhanced construction, quality and materials run throughout. Originally designed for basketball, the high level of cushioning and comfort provided by the Dunk meant it was quickly adopted by skateboarders who favoured the silhouette for high impact support.
