Collaborations from Nike SB continue to grow, and the brand keeps giving fans new offerings of the beloved Dunk Low in a variety of different forms.
Now the brand will be a collaboration with Albino & Preto, a Jiu-Jitsu company that was established in 2011. The offering features a sail-colored upper which consists of a pearl weave gi fabric which is used on official uniforms.
The shoe also comes with Black Swoosh logos on the sides with White embroidery, exposed tonal stitching atop a White midsole and Black rubber outsole. Also, you’ll spot Nike’s iconic Swoosh and Albino & Preto’s signature branding on the tongue and heel. A white rubber midsole and a black outsole will be featured underneath to complete the design. Much like other SB Dunk collabs, this release will also come with extra set of laces.
Are dunks or SB dunks more comfortable?
Are Dunks Or SB Dunks More Comfortable? An older SB Dunk can be more comfortable than a regular (non-SB) Dunk. Modern Dunk and SB Dunk releases tend to be stiffer right out of the box. As such, modern regular Dunks are more accommodating than their SB counterparts
The most noticeable difference between the two sneakers are their tongues. On the Nike Dunk, you get a slim, mesh tongue. On the SB Dunk, the tongue has been beefed up to provide more cushion and protection. By being thicker, the tongue helps with the fit as well. It enables the sneaker to mold to your feet, preventing any slipping or wiggling. The tongue is held down with elastic straps which provide an added layer of lockdown. As a bonus, it allows you to slip the SB Dunk on and off without having to mess with finicky laces.
