the Swoosh is looking to new lands for inspiration, from Japanese collectible toys to the vast flora and fauna of Terra Australis. this new Dunk Low channels the Aussie spirit through its expertly curated color palette and materials.
Adorned with sail leather uppers, the shoe’s silhouette speaks of purity and elegance. Complementing this is the light tan-beige leather overlays that imbue the design with an earthy and organic aesthetic reminiscent of Australia’s rich and diverse landscapes.
The national colors of Australia are beautifully showcased through dual-layered sage green and gold Swoosh overlays. The masterful juxtaposition of these colors breathes life into the sneaker and pays homage to the vibrant culture of the Land Down Under.Below is a university golden yellow shade, with a softer pistachio green above. The same combo of colors appears on the heel-tab.
The tongues, laces, liners, and sole units maintain a composed and streamlined design, returning to the simple sail and beige finishes. This ensures that the attention remains focused on the striking Swoosh while still exuding sophistication through its minimalistic features.
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.
