Originally reported a few days back, Nike SB recently made an official announcement that 2011 would welcome the evolution of the brand’s beloved Dunk silhouette. Re-worked as a better performing, lightweight shoe, the Dunk’s new look may not be completely apparent with imagery, but seeing how much SB has emphasized the performance wheel as of late, this release should definitely be one of interest heading into the new year.

This shoe feels so light that you could be mistaken for thinking there’s something missing, but it looks like all things superfluous have been amputated, while the sole unit gets the most dramatic tweaks. A Phylon sole is an established Nike method of trimming crucial grams from a runner, but it does the job here too. As well as being cored, to add an extra level of detailing and free up more weight, the tread on the outsole is completely altered too. Pressure points have been eliminated, but the most immediate alteration to the Dunk Pro is the level of flex it offers—you can bend it in half and it pops back to its original silhouette. Just as the new Paul Rodriguez models have the hot-knife style grooves in the vein of Free technology, this shoe operates with the same level of freedom.
