UPDATE: We've seen plenty of retro throwbacks emerge this year to celebrate 15 years of Nike SB, but the most important SB releases of 2017 so far is the arrival of the Zoom Dunk Elite Low. A complete overhaul of the Dunk like we've never seen before, this Elite version is lighter, slimmer and grippier than ever. For its big debut, SB team rider Sean Malto has put his mark on the sneaker with this samurai-themed make-up. It's available now from Nike SB stockists, including Premier, so cop your pair and put this new Dunk to the test.
Sean Malto’s new Nike SB Zoom Dunk Elite Low was inspired by traditional samurai armour. The choice of fabrics and colours has been influenced from various samurai traditions, while brass accents and stitching details add a few visual tie-ins. The shoe itself is a modern interpretation of the original SB Dunk Low that was released in 2002, utilising new technology to give a tougher, more responsive skate shoe than ever before.
The Nike SB Zoom Dunk Elite Low ‘Sean Malto’ will be available from March 2 at select SB stockists and online from NDC.
