While it seemed like Nike Sportswear had decided to take a break from dropping more Nike SB Dunk pairs, they were actually busy working on a brand new iteration of their skateboarding shoe model. The only recent SB Dunk sneakers that sneakerheads recall to have surfaced in recent times was the “Stained Glass” colorway, designed in collaboration with Concepts, and the “What The Doernbecher” colorway. This time, without the confirmation of one of the upcoming Nike release dates 2015, Nike has already dropped probably one of the most unique SB Dunk High iteration ever seen.
The “Stained Glass” Concepts x Nike SB Dunk High colorway initially made an exclusive retail debut at Concepts, but recently Nike.com provide sneakerheads another opportunity to cop the sneaker. The “What The Doernbecher” rendition of the SB Dunk High unveiled by Nike back in June was limited to just 11 pairs, all of which were made by some of the residents of the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The auctions for the sneakers eventually went live on eBay and it is unlikely they are still up for grabs. Nonetheless, for sneakerheads who feel they are corner boys deep down, will probably take interest in this new Nike SB Dunk High release that has already taken place.
Sneakerheads who feel this new SB Dunk High rendition looks a bit “crumpled” are not mistaken because this sneaker has been designed to emulate the overall aesthetic and texture of a brown paper bag. The hue covering the crinkled textured upper is being referred to as a Filber brown. Apart from featuring black trademark logos and a matching black midsole, the brown paper bag-like upper has also been combined with a classic gum sole.
For such a unique sneaker like this one, sneakerheads are probably assuming that they would have to continue waiting for one of the upcoming Nike release dates 2015. However, the fact of the matter is that this Nike SB Dunk High “Brown Paper Bag” has already hit the shelves at select Nike SB retailers, Premier.
