The Nike Dunk was originally released in 1985, it is no surprise that this shoe is still going strong in the sneaker community.
Not to be left out of the equation this V-Day, Nike introduces the 2014 iteration of the SB Dunk Low “Valentine’s Day.” Dressed for the occasion, university red is paired with white as the two trade off spaces up top, tailored in textured suede and cracked leather. Featuring trademark SB laces, the kick continues the theme as a white tongue is lined with red trim, and white midsole is underlined with a red outsole. Releasing alongside a limited edition t-shirt, you can look for the Nike SB Dunk Low “Valentine’s Day” to release on February 14 for $98.
Equally stylish and performance-driven, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro showcases its versatility in Brickhouse and Turbo Green. Scaly sections on the toe box and mid-foot are surrounded by suede, with both seen in red. Contributing as a complementary color, turbo green finds its place on the Swoosh and ankle collar, with a white midsole keeping the vibrance honest. Look for this Dunk over at Nike now, where they are available for $85.
Not due for retirement any time soon, fatigues find their way onto the Nike SB Dunk High for a “Khaki Sunset Camo” colorway. The upper in general takes a ride on the simpler side, with camo disguising the lines and offset by orange laces. For contrast, a white midsole is opted for, which is marked with speckles and underlined by a tan outsole. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks for updates on when you can expect these Dunks to land at retailers.

After joining the “BHM” conversation a few weeks ago, the Nike SB Dunk Low Premium is seen in detail ahead of its release. Smooth black suede sets the tone up top, sidled by graphic quarter panels and highlighted with metallic gold embroidery, branding and accents. Against the suede base, nubuck Swooshes are laid over top further adding to the shoes’s elegance. Providing a reasonable amount of color to the kick, a vibrant gradient is seen on the midsole, underlined by a clear as ice translucent outsole. The Nike SB Dunk Low Premium “BHM”will be available worldwide on Nike.com and at select global retail locations on February 1st for $98.
An old favorite receives a tech boost on the Nike Dunk Free. Respecting the silhouette’s original design, the updated retro keeps its lines intact, infusing the kick with Hyperfuse mesh vents sidled by black nubuck and microfiber suede. Swapping out the conventional tongue for a vivid pink inner bootie, the sneaker further lends itself to performance usage. Completing things, a white Free outsole is in place for contrast. The Nike Dunk Free Black/Vivid Pink is available now at Nike for $110.
The Nike SB Dunk High Pro goes back to black on the newest Black/White colorway. Sectioned off in suede and canvas, the black upper sets the tone of the sneaker, with black laces following suit. Red and yellow stitching throughout work to add a touch of color on the monochromatic upper, while a white midsole provides contrast. You can cop a pair to shred in over at Commonn now for £65 (~$107).
