Nike SB's skate shop-only Orange Label line is following up its recent 'Unbleached Pack' with a new SB Dunk Low Pro dubbed the 'Dark Russet'. Featuring buttery leather and an autumnal colour palette, it may be a skate shoe but it seems to salute the Dunk's basketball roots with its material and colour choices!
Signature 'Dark Russet' tones take up residence on the upper and are accented with cream-coloured branded detailing, a puffy nylon tongue and a special orange-Swooshed tongue badge, nodding to the shoe's Orange Label status. Black collar lining, cream midsoles and traditional gum outsoles provide finishing pops of flair. This isn't the first time Nike's skate division has used the 'Dark Russet' moniker either. It appeared on an SB Dunk High at the beginning of 2021 and was also used for another SB Dunk Low back in 2019.
This latest pair were originally supposed to hit Orange Label skate shops in November, but due to global shipping delays, it's likely that there won't be a firm release date drop. This is in line with many other Orange Label products: they don't have a hard street date and skate shops are encouraged to just sell them as they arrive. Expect to pay a retail price of $100 if you'd like to secure a pair.
