UPDATE: If you lucked out on the Nike.com drop, then there is still one more chance to get your hands on this OG tribute. Taiwan’s Invincible will be putting their pair up for sale on February 25. Good luck!
UPDATE: A release for OG SB heads, the Dunk High SB ‘Reese Forbes’ is on its way and landing sooner than expected. Nike have uploaded official images of the upcoming Orange Box tribute, announcing a release date in the process. You’ll be able to secure this reworked retro on February 23 through Nike.com and select SB stockists.
Nike SB is celebrating its 15th anniversary in style, resurrecting another make-up from the OG 2002 line-up for a retro treatment. Designed by team rider Reece Forbes, the ‘Denim’ Dunk Low SB has remained one of the most coveted SBs of all-time – even without the certification of a colab cosign.
Like the ‘Tiffany‘ and ‘De La Soul‘ Dunks before it, Nike SB have switched things up slightly this time around by converting the make-up from a low-cut to a high. Otherwise, this upcoming retro looks largely faithful to the original, with the same frayed double denim construction, contrast stitching and attention-grabbing red outsole. With Nike SB having already brought us a modified version of the ‘Shark‘ Dunks, could we see the complete ‘Orange Box’ line-up make a comeback in 2017? Our fingers are firmly crossed.
Nike are yet to officially announce any details regarding the Nike Dunk High SB ‘Denim’, but rumours suggest that these will release mid-2017.
