Initially teased in October 2020, the Nike SB Dunk Low “Gulf” has recently emerged in official images ahead of its Orange Label-exclusive release on Saturday, February 27th.
Inspired by a Porsche 917 race car from 1970, the forthcoming pair boasts an eye-catching “Blue Chill/Safety Orange” color palette. The former tone takes over the upper’s suede paneling and puffy mesh tongue, while the latter is almost exclusively isolated to the Air Jordan 1-reminiscent outsole. Traditional branding indulges in a black or black and white arrangement that nods to detailing on the decades-old automobile, but they’re overshadowed by the “58” stitched onto the tongue label and lateral heel, a playful copy of the numbers found on race-ready vehicles. Previous propositions under the Nike SB brand have donned the two-digit number, but none have fully committed to such a theme.
Enjoy official images of the “Gulf”-inspired option here below, and find pairs available at Nike SB accounts in Japan soon; EU/UK will receive them closer to mid-March.
