“Is that Velvet?” That infamous line from Coming to America is the first thing that comes to mind when looking at the Nike Dunk High SB Red Velvet, one of the Nike SB’s most recently-released Dunk High colorways. Apparently, that’s just the reaction that they were going for.
This new design comes engulfed in a velvet like material, which is primarily Gym Red in color, but fades to a lighter, washed out tone near the midfoot, ankle, and edges. Matching Gym Red laces have been incorporated to ensure consistency throughout the color palette, while the mesh red tongue features a white Nike SB logo. The upper, is mated to a traditional white midsole, followed by a solid-colored Gym Red sole. A translucent red sole would have definitely added more pizzazz to the sneaker’s overall look, but it’s a head turner nonetheless.
You can get the Nike Dunk High SB Red Velvet now at most Nike SB retailers at the reasonable price of $110. If you can’t find a pair in your area, online stores like Nike.com and SNS and still have the sneaker fully stocked. What’s your opinion on this new Dunk SB colorway?
