As if the Nike SB Dunk Low wasn’t already having a huge 2020, today we get a first look at the model’s next biggest release, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Chicago.
This non-collaborative colorway of the Nike SB Dunk Low utilizes the classic Chicago color scheme. Constructed out of a leather upper, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Chicago is done in the same color blocking as the Air Jordan 1 Chicago. The White upper is offset by the Red overlays and Black accents on areas such as the Swoosh, lining, heel tab and laces.
For the first time, a Nike SB Dunk Low in the Chicago color scheme is a celebration of the model released in 1985 by the Jumpman brand.
The Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Chicago features a smooth leather base with alternating red, black and white inserts in the same manner as the Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG Chicago. A mesh tongue, tonal Nike embroidery on the heel and black laces complete the look.
A must-have color on a cult silhouette that’s back more than ever this year, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Chicago is one of the flagship releases of the new school year!
Jordan Brand and Nike SB have often worked closely together in the years past, exchanging not only colorways but also entire silhouettes for releases like the Air Jordan 1 SB and its accompanying Eric Koston collaborations. But more famously, the skateboarding sub-label’s flagship, the Dunk Low, has explored a number of iconic OG Air Jordan schemes under the “J-Pack,” a series that is finally picking up where it left off in 2020.
Revealed not too long ago by way of retailers, the silhouette’s homage to “Chicago” has finally appeared through official images. Leathers, which seemingly emulates the leather quality of its muse, is delivered in the signature Bulls red; accents adjacent finish off the connection with neutral whites along the underlayer and dark black atop the Swoosh, the lining, and the laces. Elsewhere, the references to basketball are kept surprisingly thin as insignia, insoles, and the like retain the usual breadth of SB logos.
