2005 was a very good year for the Nike SB Dunk Low. One of the most memorable sneakers from that year was the one featured here created for Argentina’s premier sport club, the Boca Juniors. With such a great color combination, it’s easy to see why Nike’s skate division was drawn in by the club’s Nike Football designed uniforms.

The formula was simple, premium leather was used on the upper, primarily in Varsity Royal. A Lightning Yellow Swoosh and heel were added to complete the look on the top half. Down low the classic Dunk combination of a white midsole with gum outsole was chosen to finish off the sneaker design in true style. For the lace options Nike SB gave the choice for either Varsity Royal or Lightning, with the latter being the more popular choice amongst sneaker enthusiasts lucky enough to own a pair. Although the Boca Juniors have had plenty of gear from Nike throughout the years, these Dunks are the most popular.
