First teased back in March, the Nike SB Dunk Low “atmos Elephant” has recently emerged in official images ahead of its scheduled November 11th release date. While not an official collaboration, the forthcoming pair draws striking resemblance to the beloved Air Max 1 by the Japanese boutique from 2007.
“White” leather at the toe box works in-tandem with “Black” nubuck across the midfoot and collar areas to set the stage for both Air Jordan 3-reminiscent patterns and “Clear Jade” accents – the latter consisting of profile swooshes and branding on the tongue and heel.
Underfoot, sole units are predominantly clad in the palette’s simplest hues, but detailing in the center of the outsole indulge in a vibrant green tone.
Other silhouettes within the Nike Sportswear category have made nods to atmos‘ eye-catching arrangement, but Nike SB‘s upcoming proposition makes the most accurate interpretation yet.
