Sneaker Spotlight: Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Bonsai”

Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Bonsai”

The third pair of sneakers in a series of Hemp inspired footwear, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Bonsai” brought the truest sense of color combination with subject matter. Hemp is a more common phrase for Cannabis. It holds multiple uses which stems from different products such as seeds, oils, and cloth material. The material that hemp provides is a durable fabric, which can be used for clothes and kicks. Hemp holds its origins from over 2000 years ago, proving to be a viable option as a source of fabric that has stood the test of time. It comes as no surprise when hemp was chosen as the next material utilized in the classic line of Nike SB Dunks. The Nike SB Dunk Low Pro “Bonsai” released in August 2004 as part of a pack that included both a Cascade Blue and Red Mahogany color released in prior months. This particular pair was the most limited of the three. Rumored to only 420 or 444 pairs available, they became the most sought after pair of the pack.

Another memorable release in Nike SB’s long standing line of Dunks, the “Bonsai” pair saw popular demand with the use of Hemp throughout the sneaker. The official colors of the pair are Jersey Gold and Bonsai. The Bonsai green color is mostly seen on the swoosh, heel, and outsole. The swoosh and heel are both done up in the same colored suede. Bonsai is also seen on the tongue tag and lining. Jersey Gold is the color given to the hemp material seen throughout the entire upper of the sneaker.  Touches of gold make up the stitching on the tongue tag and “NIKE” on the heel, while the pair is brought together with a gum midsole.  #sneakerholics and hemp enthusiasts can truly appreciate Nike’s rendition of this durable material and its use as a viable fabric for footwear.
