When news of a “Doraemon” themed Nike SB Dunk High began circulating, the community got excited. As one of the most iconic manga series history, Doraemon boasts fans all over the world. Over the past 50 years, the series has become something of a staple in Japanese culture. With that in mind, Nike SB began playing with the idea of a special tribute version. Well, after much waiting, the Nike SB Dunk High “Doraemon” is finally dropping later this month.
Nike SB hasn’t held back on the premium nature of this Dunk High. Plush tumbled leather is at the base of the sneaker, with luxe suede overlays adorning the rest. Taking the colour scheme of the main character in the Doraemon, a simple red, white and blue give this shoe its eye-catching look. Splashes of yellow can be seen on the tongue, giving this Dunk a nice touch. Keeping things simple is a white midsole and blue sole unit, bringing this SB Dunk to a close.
Although details are yet to be confirmed, the shoe itself is enough to get us excited. With this being a limited release, you can expect this to be a skate shop exclusive. As for now, we’ve got no exact release date but rumours suggest these will launch towards the end of the month. Check back to the KLEKT Blog where we’ll keep you updated on this story as more breaks. Check out the images below and let us know if you’ll cop these SB Dunks.
