Manufacturers are often the unsung heroes of the footwear world, so Nike SB is shining a light on Ching Luh — one of the world’s largest footwear manufacturing outfits — with its new SB Dunk Low “Vietnam.” Ching Luh and Nike have been partners since 1995, so the “collaborative” sneaker serves as both a celebration of Ching Luh itself and a nod to Vietnam, where most of the two entities’ business takes place.

In tribute to the Vietnamese flag the leather and nubuck upper is dressed in red and white, then accented by a triple-stacked yellow, black and red Swoosh plus a yellow star in place of the right shoe’s standard heel branding. There’s also a large “25” graphic present on each perforation-free toebox, nodding to the quarter-century long working relationship between Ching Luh and Nike.

Commemorative detailing doesn’t stop there, however. Each tongue tag features a special “Nike 25” graphic on the outside, while on the liner the left foot reads “1995-2020” and the right foot serves up a special Ching Luh text hit. Zoom Air-equipped insoles serve up a “Win As A Team” embellishment above yet another “Nike 25” hit. Red midsoles and yellow outsoles round off the look.

A release date for the Nike SB Dunk Low “Vietnam” has yet to be announced, but it’ll likely hit retailers later this holiday season.
