Nike SB did some interesting things with the Dunk in recent years. After defattening and refattening the tongues on the Lows and flirting with strap removal surgery on the Mids, the Dunk Pro SB got a new sole construction and traction pattern in 2011 along with improvements to the cushioning and overall feel.
This past year also saw a marked increase in ‘Un-’ style colorway reduxes, whereby classics from the past decade were reworked and applied to different silo heights. And now somewhere between those appropriations, carryover models like the ‘Griptapes’ and true retro releases comes this new Nike SB Dunk Low that you’d be hard pressed to call anything other than ’Loden’. That’s because they look quite a bit like the 2002 pair by that same name, but Swoosh skateboarding hasn’t gone so far as to officially link them or suggest further tributes. So what say you, Sneaker News reader? Should Nike SB retro some of its beloved classics, should they continue to push the envelope with new themes and references, and which pairs would you be more excited to add to your collection? via N-SB
