Arriving in tonal shades of grey, the “Iron Grey” Dunk sees a combination of smooth and cracked leather taking over the uppers – the former providing a smooth base, and the latter adding a rough-and-ready touch to the overlays. The overlays and Swooshes also come with somewhat of a distressed aesthetic to add to its frightful motif. Quarter panels and heels also add possess enticing reflective allure to them. The former features oversized Swooshes that run across while the latter modifies its branding with Nike branding that is printed in a tombstone-inspired font. Underneath all of that, the midsoles pieces are fashioned with a clean white hue and the outsoles are backdropped in a Frankenstein-reminiscent green with all-over speckles.
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.
