Sneaker Spotlight: Nike SB Dunk Low “Sandalwood”

Nike SB Dunk Low “Sandalwood”

We take a look back at a version of the Nike SB Dunk Low that is perfect to battle the elements of Winter. Here we see the “Sandalwood” build nicknamed for one of the colors used, a trend many SB’s followed back then. During the release of these Dunks they not sought after for their rugged, dirty looks, but many found them to be the perfect pair to be skated in.

Following a similar overall look as the “Carhartt” Dunk Low SB’s, the Sandalwood’s were made with a canvas upper. A sight not often seen on skate sneakers even to this day. The canvas was actually a “veggie” canvas, known for its waterproof capabilities further showing that these were made to be skated in regardless of the weather. With these being readily available for fans, over time they were bleached and experimented on to change their appearance for a custom look. Although not often seen nowadays we have a feeling if a similar build but different colorway released today they would be a popular especially during this season.
