Nike will release this special SB Dunk High dubbed “Dog Walker” on April 20th, 2019.
Perfect for those pre-bed time dog walks, the Nike SB Dunk High Dog Walker is the 15th year of 4/20 celebrations by Nike. With a variety of panels in premium textures, the star of which is the dalmation spotted side panel which contrasts the green hairy suede that accents the whole upper body aiming to represent grass stains. Further hairy textures sit on the along the toe, tongue and heel all giving the essence of a different dog breed in each one. Other notable details include the red nylon swoosh, aiming to be a playful take on a dog collar added to by the dog bone hang tag with the name “Sparky” etched onto it. It’s clear outsole is finalised with small brown splatters – for “mud”.
Despite such an ostentatious look, the Nike Dunk SB offers the same skate-orientated function that makes it arguably the most popular skate shoe of all time. Namely a responsive Zoom Air Unit in the sockliner, for perfect impact protection providing all day comfort – further added to by the classic padded tongue. The cupsole construction ensures durability, with a circular tread pattern for multidirectional traction.
Arguably the most creative iteration of Nike annual 4/20 Dunk, this shoe brings the best in both worlds with function that brought it to prominence well over a decade ago. It’s as a result of this that it’s been SB’s poster-boy for several collaborations and quickstrike releases.
