Nike SB by no means passes up the chance to create a holiday-inspired Dunk, be it Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, and even 4/20. For this 12 months’s St. Patrick’s Day festivities, the model has whipped up a inexperienced sneaker that includes suede panels, metallic gold Swooshes, and naturally, shamrock particulars.
Positive, the Irish vacation doesn’t arrive till March — however materials shortages and transport delays have Nike working effectively forward of its normal schedule. Already, the model has ready its Valentine’s Day Dunks, riling up sneakerheads effectively forward of the celebrations. With supply chain issues disrupting practically each firm, together with Nike, Supreme, and Yeezy, we could also be seeing an increasing number of merchandise effectively forward of their scheduled launch dates.
Speak about fortunate sneakers — That mentioned, it’s simple to think about what Nike SB’s St. Patrick’s Day Dunk might appear to be — previous designs from the vacation are overwhelmingly inexperienced. And whereas the model has but to disclose official imagery of its St. Patrick’s Day Dunks, leaked pictures from @wavegod_thelegend depict a wholly inexperienced suede sneaker, complemented by matching inexperienced laces, tongues, and sock liners.
This 12 months’s Dunk straight references Nike SB’s St. Patrick’s Day Dunk Excessive from 2013, albeit in low-top kind. Switching out the unique’s easy leather-based panels for suede ones, the up to date sneaker comes wearing the same emerald inexperienced, flashing shiny gold hits on its Swoosh, heels, and tongues to characterize a pot of gold. Within the spirit of the vacation, white four-leaf clovers have been added to the lateral sides of the shoe, whereas a white midsole and gum outsole maintain the remainder of the sneaker pretty minimal.
As uncommon as a four-leaf clover — As of now, launch particulars for the St. Patrick’s Day Dunk Lows have but to be established by Nike SB, though the sneakers’ launch will presumably fall across the March vacation. You’ll should snag a pair to keep away from heightened resale costs — and getting pinched on St. Patrick’s Day, after all. Count on the suede sneakers to be in excessive demand, particularly because the SB pair stands proud from Nike’s normal two-toned choices. As a lot as we could also be sick of the Dunk, this celebratory low-top is one we’ll really feel fortunate to get.
