Nike SB’s Orange Label has steadily become a touchstone in the brand’s sneaker collection. Not simply a lineup of chic garb and skateboard-ready shoes like the SB Dunk Low, it’s also a testament to Nike’s commitment to the skateboarding community. The brand has continued to release new and exciting colourways through this label, which are only available for purchase at local skate stores. This year, they released the “Court Purple” and “Wolf Grey” colourways, both of which received positive reception from sneaker enthusiasts. Now, to pique your curiosity for the new year, we bring you a sneak peek at the upcoming SB Dunk Low “Red Suede” sneakers.
In this new version of the beloved SB Dunk Low, a playful dance of leather and suede entwines in a captivating colour scheme comprising of “White”, “University Red”, “Gum Light Brown”, “Gym Red”, and a dash of “Safety Orange”.
This striking pair boasts a white leather finish tastefully displayed on the toe box, quarter panel and collar, contrasting harmoniously with the bold red suede of the mudguard, eye stays, and heel. The iconic Swoosh logo comes to life in the same vibrant red suede, standing out amid the pristine white leather backdrop. The aesthetics are further enhanced by white mesh, which wraps the padded tongue and lining, and a deep red insole that echoes the bold colour scheme.

But it’s not all style; there’s a story to tell, too. An inviting hint of orange on the tongue tag bearing the Nike SB logo offers a nod to the brand’s Orange Label. This identification drives home the point that this vibrant pair is an addition to an ongoing exclusive collection available only at skate shops. Turn the tag, and the poignant ‘Support your locals’ message lends further credence to the campaign advocating for supporting local skate shops. It reminds consumers to prioritize their local skate shops and the community they represent.
Finally, a white midsole and gum rubber outsole contrasts brilliantly against one another. The look is crowned with thick white rope lace sets that add a clean finish to the overall aesthetic. Overall, the shoe’s design is visually striking, showcasing a perfect balance between style and functionality while simultaneously hitting home the importance of supporting local businesses. By choosing to purchase from local skate shops, consumers get a pair of stylish and functional shoes while contributing to the growth and sustainability of their community.
