As the 2022 inaugural MLB season starts back up, the design team at Nike SB continues to bless its fan base with more offerings of the Nike SB Dunk Low. The latest team joining the “Bubble Gum Pack” is the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The SB Dunk Low “Dodgers” features the classic Dodger blue in suede above a white leather base. The exposed stitched around the Swoosh act as a nod to the embroidery seen on MLB jerseys, while the gum sole — consistent with the MLB SB Dunk releases — feature a blotch of bubble gum pink on the right shoe.
For the finishing touches, the pair features red Nike branding on the heel and tongue mimicking the uniforms and logos of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
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.
