We see the ever-popular silhouette has been given the Swoosh’s famed “What The” treatment, blending design elements from Rodriguez’s extensive sneaker line with the brand.
The Nike SB Dunk Low What The P-Rod pays homage to past Nike SB collaborations and releases from the P-Rod signature line. Its mismatched upper comes in an array of mesh, leather, suede, patent leather, and woven materials. The P-Rod 1 “Mexican Blanket” is referenced on one of the shoes, for example, while the other is a nod to the P-Rod 1 “Stash.” The Dunks also include elephant print accents that point to the Air Jordan 1-inspired P-Rod 1 “J-Rod.”
About Paul Rodriguez & Dunk Nike
Paul Rodriguez signed with Nike SB in 2005 and has gone on to release a slew of signature shoes with the brand, in addition to collaborations on the likes of the Dunk, leaving the Swoosh with more than enough designs to carry over to the “What The Paul.”
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.
