The Nike Dunk Low “Argon” wasn’t part of the famed City Attack series that kick-started the Dunk craze, but its flashy exterior — a pairing of two distinct blue shades — helped it stand out and was at point one of the more expensive Dunks in the secondary market.
For this 2022 retro, the Beaverton-based sportswear giant elected to bring back all of its original design cues. It’s titular tone is highlighted on various areas of the upper such as the perforated toe boxes, tongues, collars and quarter panels while the neighboring overlays are dialed to a brighter blue shade. Crispy white accents also get time to shine on the base layer as they outfit the laces, tongue banners, Swooshes and heel overlays.
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.
