The famed “J-Pack” colorway of the Nike SB Dunk from 2005 paid homage to the original Air Jordan 1 colorway of Royal Blue that was such a mainstay in the skate scene. A similar colorway arrives ten years later, but with another shade of blue that is undeniably MJ all the way.
Black and University Blue share the leather upper of this Nike SB Dunk Low, but without the soft blue hue breaking up the look on the quarters. Instead, there’s a black Swoosh on a black leather panel, only contrasted by a blue stitch outline. A traditional white midsole and blue outsole wraps things up below.
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.
