The Powerpuff Girls is a popular American animated television series, which is based on the superhero fiction genre and showcases three kindergarten-aged girls with superpowers. Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles come together to fight evil, who are all criminals of the fictional city of Townsville.
The show is now collaborating with the Nike SB label to bring all three characters to life with the sneaker model SB Dunk Low. The SB Dunk sneaker model was first debuted in 2002 under the leadership of Sandy Bodecker. The official Swoosh label site introduces the sneaker model as:
“From backboards to skateboards, the influence of the Nike Dunk is undeniable. Although introduced as a basketball shoe in 1985, its flat and grippy soles were perfect for a neglected sports community—skaters. Uncovering a subculture craving creativity as much as function, the Dunk released decades of countless colorways that continue to capture the soul of skaters from coast to coast.”
Nike SB continues its collaborative dominance with the upcoming The Powerpuff Girls x Nike SB Dunk Low collection, inspired by the trio of superheroes made of sugar, spice, and everything nice.
The Powerpuff Girls x Nike SB Dunk Low “Blossom” closely mirrors the color palette of the team’s self-proclaimed leader.
The pink upper and blacked-out midsole are directly inspired by her choice of outfit, while the bright orange Swoosh and matching laces draw reference to the character’s hair. What’s more, This style is constructed out of premium materials and highlighted by the characters’ big eyes on the heels resulting in a unique and head-turning aesthetic; the trims are clad in a reflective finish;More branding is added with insides of tongue tags featuring “The Powerpuff Girls” lettering; and the insoles are covered from end to end with countless brightly-colored, comic book styled speech balloons.
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.
