Diamond Supply had already made its name as a leading skate and lifestyle brand, and in 2005, Tershay was asked to design an SB Dunk Low. The result: an iconic pair which some regard as the most beautiful Nike SB Dunk Lows of all time.
Dressed in crocodile embossed leather with vibrant Blue-like panels, Tershay described his SB Dunk as the most hyped and luxurious shoe at the time. Contrasting with the black crocodile and blue panels is a metallic silver Swoosh. The tongue-tag also features the Diamond Supply Co. diamond logo. A White midsole atop a Black rubber outsole completes the design.
The pair was influential enough for Nike SB to give Tershay a follow-up 2013 collaboration – a high top version of the same ‘Tiff’ Dunk – and a further collaboration in 2018, with three new colorways featuring the same motifs.

What does SB mean in Nike SB Dunk Low?
Nike Skateboarding, primarily known as Nike SB, is the Nike brand for its line of shoes, clothing, and equipment for skateboarding.
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.
