Nike Dunk Low “Setsubun” White Onyx/Court Purple-Khaki DQ5009-268


SKU: DQ5009-268 Category: Tags: ,


Setsubun, which translates to “Seasonal Division,” is a festival held at the beginning of February. As designated by the Japanese Lunar Calendar, the celebration occurs one day prior to the start of Spring. And while not a national holiday, many still partake in rituals that ward off evil spirits.

You can capture the essence of the holiday through the shoe’s various details. Often dubbed the “Bean-Throwing Festival,” Setsubun is best commemorated in the shoe’s added imagery. Across the back heel, for example, Tsuno Daishi, the Great Horned Master — a figure that is believed to protect from sickness and evil — is highlighted on the lateral heel through purple embroidery, and his horns have been substituted with Nike Swooshes. The figure’s appearance, while seemingly ominous, actually protects from evil and illness. If you slip out the insoles, you’ll notice that artwork from Utagawa Kuniyoshi is plastered on them in all-over fashion. It features his “Kintoki Throwing Beans at Fleeing Demon” piece that displays the folk hero Kintarō.

As for the construction, the upper blends suede with cracked and textured leathers, dressing many up in a shade reminiscent of roasted soybeans. The Swoosh as well as the lining are tinted a vibrant purple, matching the above-mentioned appearance of Tsuno Daishi.

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

Dunk vs SB Dunk: What’s the Difference Between the Sneakers?

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.
