In the midst of Nike SB's 15th anniversary, the Swoosh's skate division has wound back the clock to revisit the original 'Orange Box' line-up – with a twist. Having already tackled some of the later releases from SB's inaugural year, an Instagram leak has revealed that the team have now set their sights on one of the first four SBs to hit shelves – the original 'Wheat Forbes' Dunk Low, designed by Nike SB team rider Reese Forbes. Like the 'Reverse Shark' Dunk before it, SB have have subjected the original design to inverse colour-blocking. The design's darker hues have switched places with its lighter tones, producing a Dunk that is both familiar and unique.
The Nike SB Dunk Low 'Reverse Wheat Forbes' is rumoured to be hitting selected SB stockists on May 25.
