Original Story: 2023 is looking up for Nike and its SB label as there are plans in place to release a sizable amount of exciting footwear collaborations. The Swoosh division already has a two-piece pack coming with Run the Jewels and a thirst-quenching team-up with Mexican beverage company Jarritos, and now itâ€™s expanding its wings with a Born x Raised x Nike SB Dunk Low.
Early images have landed on our radar, revealing a plethora of striking details. The LA-based streetwear label upgrades the classic SB model with a crisp white and blue color scheme, the former hue residing on the tongues, quarter panels and toe boxes, while the latter is positioned on the overlays. Toe boxes trade out their usual dotted perforations for cross shapes, and the heels are enhanced with holographic heel panels and remixed â€œBorn SBâ€ branding. â€œOne Block at a Timeâ€ is a signature motto for Born x Raised, and the imprint elects to highlight this on the tongues and toe tips. Itâ€™s likely that these are dedicated to a loved one of the brand given that the laces have been adorned with the words â€œIn Loving Memoryâ€. Additionally, the heels have been styled with a 3D block that spells out â€œOn the Turf.â€
