Check Out the Nike SB Dunk Low CraterRelease: 17 October 2020
Nike’s Move to Zero initiative has been a win for the sustainable sneaker space, and they’ve released a whole bunch of well-known models donning Crater Foam, plus the flagship Space Hippie collection. Following on from their ‘Community Garden’ Dunk Low last month, Team Swoosh have now tapped their SB cohort for a recycled re-do. Officially dubbed the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro E, with the E standing for Eco, we’ve just received official images and some detailed info on the brand new, environmentally-friendly Dunk.
Dressed in a tonal blue and grey colourway, with an off-white midsole and speckled outsole, you may notice it looks slightly different to your usual SB Dunk. Most notably the collar, which may look thinner than what you’re used to. But be assured there’s the same amount of foam used, it’s just that Nike have opted-out of the usual rolled edge – instead going for stitching for a more eco-friendly design. Elsewhere, the outsole also uses recycled Nike Grind rubber, with the Zoom unit also reusing old TPU.
Making this release special, minimal embroidery has been used with a subtle white Swoosh along the sides, plus a small logo hit on the tongue which is crafted using recycled polyester. Alongside the regular navy laces that we can see above, Nike have blessed us with an extra grey pair, both created using pre-dyed yarn leftover from a previous release.
