Piet Parra‘s newest foray with Beaverton is one met with a balance of both color and neutrals. Choosing the Nike SB Dunk Low as his canvas, the Amsterdam-based artist is readied to dose in his quiet vibrant motifs onto the silhouette.
An ultra clean take on the Nike SB Dunk Low silhouette, the shoe is painted in a white, pink, red, and blue colour palette and is infused with the Dutch artist’s signature touches, such as the series of stacked Swooshes on the lateral and medial side panels, which are finished with a chenille material for a look that’s hard to ignore.
Additional Swoosh motifs hits the toe box in blue, while co-branded detailing arrives on the insole and heels, with “SB” written on the left shoe and “Parra” embroidered on the right. Rounding it all off is a multicoloured sockliner that’s printed with Parra’s iconic colour blocked pattern.
Playful logo lock-ups finish up with both partners right on the heel for a pair that slowly welcomes back the collaborator into the midst of the current market.
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.
