A handful of the Dunk Lows that Nike and its Nike SB division have been unveiling this year are ones that make reference to a past colorway. For example, we’ve seen the model channel a duo of ACG Terra colorways as well as mimic the Air Jordan 1 High “Celtics” iteration. And now the Nike SB Dunk Low is harking back to the early days of the Air Max 90 and replicating its “Laser Blue” palette.
Not only does the Swoosh’s skate family hit the bullseye when it come to the hues, but it also translates the constructions to a tee. The silhouette — which usually is formed with leather toe boxes and collars — trades them out for a mesh material to match its muse and forms its mid-foot with pure white leather. A neutral gray tone outfits the suede Swooshes and the rear overlay is drenched in black to translate the look of the AM 90‘s mudguard. More titular hits can be found on the tongue branding and heel overlays. The lower parts of the shoe are built with white midsoles and treading is completely dripped in “Laser Blue.”
