Closer Look: Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Vietnam 25th Anniversary’

Nike began its ventures in Vietnam in 1995 and, 25 years on, a special edition Dunk Low is commemorating the quarter-of-a-century milestone. Interestingly, the silhouette chosen is a Nike SB Dunk Low, as opposed to the more traditional build. 

The colours are unmistakably based on the Vietnam flag, with red and yellow the dominate hues. The upper features a white base with red overlays, while embroidered triple-stacked Swooshes hit the side. The tongue tag swaps the familiar ‘SB’ for ‘25’, as a commemorative toe box graphic nods to the anniversary. More patriotic decorations come by way of a yellow star on the right heel, and a matching red/yellow sole combination. Inside you’ll find more tributes, including ‘Ching Luh’ (the name of one of Nike’s factories in Vietnam) and ‘1995-2020’ on the inner tongues, as well as ‘WIN AS A TEAM’ and a ‘Nike 25’ logo printed on the insoles.

With the American flag depicted on the toe box graphic, this colourway could also be seen as a celebration of the US-Vietnam bilateral relations, which were established in 1995.

The Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Vietnam 25th Anniversary’ could release in the coming months. It’s unclear whether these are a F&F or region-exclusive, but we’ll bring you the info as it surfaces.
