The synergy between Nike‘s Nike SB and Nike Sportswear sub-labels has produced many a memorable release in years past, and the latest shoe that brings both branches together is an SB Dunk High dubbed the “Reverse Goldenrod.” An apt follow-up to the Dunk High “Varsity Maize” from December 2020 — a shoe originally known as the “Goldenrod” — this high-top SB Dunk is equal parts skate and street, with design roots reaching all the way back to 1985’s “Be True to Your School” Dunk pack.

Uppers are made of a resilient nubuck and offer a two-tone look. “Goldenrod,” a bold yellow tone, arrives on the toeboxes, quarters and collars while also taking up residence on the puffy mesh tongue. Contrast is provided by a stark black on the mudguards, eyestays, midfoot Swooshes and heels. Besides the Swooshes, branding is handled by a black and yellow SB tag on the tongue. Both the collar and tongue are trimmed in black, and white midsoles work with black outsoles to complete the look. It’s worth noting that in years past Nike SB has skate-ified many of the colorways from the above-mentioned BTTYS collection, so the “Reverse Goldenrod” fits into the line effortlessly.

Early reports indicate that the Nike SB Dunk High “Reverse Goldenrod” will release in Asia come July 3, then hit the US later in the month. Its MSRP will likely be set at $120 USD.
