Sneaker Spotlight: Nike SB Dunk Low “Ron Burgundy”

Nike SB Dunk Low “Ron Burgundy”

If nothing else with the Nike SB line, the creativity factor comes to mind when drawing inspiration on different kicks. The Nike SB Dunk Low “Ron Burgundy” is just that, a source of entertaining sneakers that the legend that bares its namesake would be proud.  It was a good choice for Nike SB when drawing its inspiration from Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy in creating this classy color way. Released in mid-2009, the pair can be described as closely resembling the suit of Will Ferrell’s classic character. With the upcoming release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues on the horizon, it’s important to remember what made his character so popular. Ferrell’s classic lines, witty manner, and overall lack of self-awareness make Ron Burgundy an easy choice when designing these kicks.

The Nike SB Dunk Low “Ron Burgundy”, as mentioned earlier, draws its name sake from the classic suit worn by the character. The official colors of this pair are Team Red and Metallic Gold. The Team Red can be seen throughout the suede upper of the pair, which makes up the rear, lateral, lace loops, and toe cap. The color is also seen on the outsole. Metallic Gold is lightly done on the swoosh, parts of the tongue and tongue tag, and speckled throughout the outsole. A white toe and midsole offset the rest of this impressive sneaker. What makes the pair stand apart is the tie like material used on the tongue and heel cap. The design closely resembles a navy colored tie that could probably be found at a thrift store, drawing inspirations of a different era. The pair is a definite popular choice for #sneakerholics looking to show their love of the popular movie while staying classy.
