the Nike SB Dunk Low “Desert Sand/Mahogany” has finally hit stockists.
The Swoosh is keeping this nice and subdued, relying on clean pairings of hues to feed to the uptick in SB Dunk interest, harkening back to the earliest seasons of the category.
The light beige upper is merely contrasted with the dark mahogany on the Swoosh, inner lining, laces, and outsole, making for a sharp colorway that even the OG fanatics will approve.
Additional branding hits remain in place with a Nike heel embroidery and a Nike SB tag on the padded tongue. Arriving with such clean precision for skate and casual use, this model makes for a safe addition to your regular sneaker rotation.
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.
