2. Nike SB Dunk Low “Orange and Emerald Rise”
If bright colours and fuzzy suede are your delight, then the Nike SB Dunk Low “Orange and Emerald Rise” is the perfect sneaker to add to your collection. This groovy sneaker features a vibrant Orange and Emerald Rise coloured upper, which throws back to the psychedelic vibes of the 70s. A Lemon Chiffon outsole then adds a pop of contrast to the shoe’s overall aesthetic, while the fuzzy suede material adds a touch of texture that brings a unique and retro feel to the design. For those who have patiently been waiting for this vibrant sneaker to arrive, Nike will be releasing these fuzzy SB Dunk Lows via SNKRS and select retailers on August 25th.
3. Nike Dunk Low “Oil Green”
Peter Moore’s iconic design gets a refreshing fall update with the “Oil Green” colourway. The low-top silhouette features its customary full leather construction dressed in a white, light bone, oil green, and cargo khaki colour scheme. This sneaker hasn’t even hit the shelves yet, but it’s already generating much buzz among sneaker enthusiasts. The combination of the clean white base and the earthy tones give this Dunk Low a unique and versatile look worthy of becoming a staple in any sneaker rotation. Don’t sleep on these when they are finally released via the Nike online store on August 29th.
4. Nike SB Dunk Low x Yuto “Wolf Grey”
Another highly coveted Dunk Low drop has to be this upcoming collaboration with Japanese skater Yuto Horigome. Inside and out, this SB Dunk Low pays homage to the Olympic gold medalist’s formative skating years, drawing inspiration from Ōjima Komatsugawa Park in Tokyo, Japan, where the skater honed his skills. The premium suede and leather upper features washed hues that evoke the colours of Yuto’s youth, just like the marble benches and the vibrant cherry blossoms that illuminate Komatsugawa’s paths. The sneaker also boasts cherry blossom renderings on the insoles and embroidered feather artwork created by Japanese artist Verdy on the heel and tongue. As if that wasn’t enough to get us all excited, the Yuto Horigome Dunk Low also comes packaged in a custom box and offers three tonal lace options. This drop is a must-have for any sneakerhead or fan of Yuto Horigome’s skateboarding prowess when it releases on August 29th.
5. Nike Dunk Low Retro Premium “Light Orewood Brown”
The retro Dunk Low takes on sophisticated neutrals with its “Light Orewood Brown” colourway.

This stunning combination not only elevates the shoe’s overall aesthetic but also ensures long-lasting wear for any sneaker enthusiast.
