For Air Max 270, The Nike SB Dunk High has joined countless “grail lists” over the past two years. And while individuals the likes of Travis Scott – recently pictured court-side at an NBA game wearing an “Iron Maiden” colorway worth $100,000 USD – continue bringing visibility to the silhouette’s previous iterations, the Swoosh’s skate category hasn’t forgotten about its core audience. Often less eye-catching than the pairs familiar to the masses, these propositions tend to prefer a subtle arrangement, and are almost strictly focused on performance.
This Nike SB Dunk High, it comes highlighted with Light Tan throughout while constructed with suede, mesh, and a wave-like pattern. Woven canvas adorns the toe, panels, and ankle while suede appears on the overlays, and mesh on the tongue. Next, White leather covers the Swoosh, leather, and midsole while Gum runs across the rubber outsole. Other highlights include Orange on the tongue label, lace tips, and insoles, which is a tribute to the Orange Label series.Shades of cream and white take over the skate-ready option’s upper, as a fan-favorite gum brown outsole rounds out the makeup.
The Nike Blazer Mid ’77 Suede Light Violet indulges in a durable, high-quality suede construction throughout the upper.The pale lavender hue extends to the laces, retro leather Swoosh and Nike-branded heel tab. Contrasting colors are confined to the woven tongue tag, featuring a standard Nike wordmark and an orange Swoosh. The sneaker’s traditional autoclave tooling comes complete with a standard herringbone tread.Sole units maintain a simple style, boasting a complementary off-white makeup that allows the upper to revel that much more in the spotlight.
