Another hot theme from Nike SB’s golden days has returned, but it’s not quite the same as we remember. Fortunately, that’s not necessarily a bad thing, as change can be quite good.
Here’s a look at the the Nike SB Dunk Low Reverse Shark, which takes the popular design from 2002, and switches it around to create something similar yet different. This new design utilizes Nightshade suede over Chile Red leather, a total flip from its predecessor, which utilized Team Red suede over Nightshade leather. Nightshade laces have been utilized for a perfect match over the sneaker’s tongue, while a white Nike SB tongue logo easily stands out over the dark color. The white and red sole remains basically unchanged, except for the fact that black stitching has been used over red to keep it attached to the upper. The end result is a sneaker that many will agree rivals its reverse colored ancestor.
With a retail price of $90, the Nike SB Dunk Low Reverse Shark will release at Skateshops and Nike SB accounts on Wednesday, January 26. If waiting isn’t really your thing, you can get these early on eBay for retail price. Also, if you’re a purist and would prefer to own the original from 2002, there’s a few brand new pairs listed as well.
