Preceded by a matching Air Force 1, this Dunk Low features multiple Swooshes across its lateral profile. Slightly altered, embroidered styles sit to the side of the silhouette’s usual, leather-constructed check, which is dressed in orange and blue across the left and right foot, respectively. Their adjacent counterparts are clad in equally bold colors, matching the sockliner, midsole speckles, and tongue branding. The base, then, rounds out the colorway in a scheme reminiscent of the ever-ubiquitous “Panda.”

Why are SB dunks so popular?
By the mid-’90s, the Nike Dunk had become a cult favorite amongst the skateboarding community, thanks to its superior cushioning, support and traction
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.
