If you thought hype surrounding the SB Dunk was beginning to die down, you’d be very wrong. For the past three years, Nike’s flagship skateboarding sneaker has completely dominated the streetwear scene, and this isn’t about to stop anytime soon as we take our first look at the TIGHTBOOTH x Nike SB Dunk Low.
Made in collaboration with Japanese pro-skater Shinpei Ueno, this Dunk Low is extremely unique. First of all, the base is crafted from a buttery black nubuck, and it’s overlaid by crisp white leather panels throughout. A 3M-infused Swoosh glides across the lateral and medial sidewalls, complete with its very own “TIGHTBOOTH” tag in orange.
This is complemented by the bold insole that’s decorated with further branding for good measure. The Zoom Air midsole underfoot has been completely blacked out for a seriously stealthy aesthetic, and to round it all off, the fat tongue is covered in a series of dots and finished with the iconic “Nike SB” label, finalising the legendary design.
While not much else is known about the TIGHTBOOTH x Nike SB Dunk Low FD2629-100 at this moment in time, our sources tell us that a Holiday 2023 release date is on the cards. Let us know what you think of this upcoming SB Dunk collab, and in related news, the CLOT x Nike Dunk Low “What The” marks the end of an era.
