Nike SB heads back to its roots of skateboarding with the release of the “Orange Label.” Part of Nike‘s “#supportyourlocalskateshop” initiative, the Swoosh took five of its classic silhouettes and crafted them purely for skating. Focusing less on flashy patterns/colors, and more on the quality of the materials, the collection sees all five models — the SB Dunk Mid, SB Dunk Low, SB Blazer, SB Bruin, and SB Gato — with completely black uppers, white branding and midsoles, and a gum-rubber outsole.
As this collection was intended for the skate community, it will only be dropping at skateshops in the States. The collection is defined by the Nike SB logo in an orange box, with the white text slightly rotated. Look for Nike SB’s “Orange Label” to drop March 1 at nike.com and at skateshops across the United Sates. For a complete list of all the shops that will carry the label, visit the homepage here.
