Fresh Drops: Nike SB x NBA
Just in time for the start of the new NBA season, Nike SB is showing us that skaters and ballers have way more in common than we think.
Nike SB can trace its origins back to 1997 when Nike’s Basketball division flooded the market with the Dunk sneaker, it’s premium basketball shoe. When these shoes became overstocks in retail store and found their way to clearance sale bins, skateboarders were quick to realize they could buy the discounted shoes and cut them up to make the perfect skate shoes. Thus, the Dunk Low was born in 2002.
Today the SB brand endorses the biggest names in skateboarding like Stefan Janoski and Nyjah Houston.
Included in the Nike SB x NBA capsule are some classic sportswear items, like a super clean satin bomber jacket and hoodies that both incorporate NBA’s signature white silhouette dribbling logo. There are also some footwear options included as well, with the Bruin, Blazer and ever-loved Dunk arriving in a triple play of cool colorways.
