Nike SB is blending skateboarding and basketball once again, remixing a classic Jordan Brand style on the new SB Dunk High Pro “Space Jam.” With a color scheme and materials inspired by the original Air Jordan 11 “Space Jam,” this high-cut Nike Dunk is at once fresh and familiar.
The upper presents a plentiful helping of glossy black patent leather with black ballistic mesh also appearing on the throat and quarter. A white and blue tongue label adds just a touch of accenting color. Meanwhile, the heel tabs provide the design’s most clever detail by flipping the Air Jordan 11’s signature heel hit into an SB logo. Even the laces get in on the homage, swapping out the Dunk’s normal flat style for a thin rope lace, similar to what you’d see on an AJ11. Down below, a white midsole with Zoom Air cushioning in the heel and an icy blue translucent outsole complete the look.
This isn’t the first time that the “Space Jam” colorway has been used for inspiration on an SB Dunk: the SB Dunk Low Pro received a similar makeover back in 2011, and the Air Jordan 11 “Bred” — which is releasing again this holiday season — served as inspiration for an SB Dunk High Pro in 2018.
The Nike SB Dunk High Pro “Space Jam” will release on November 27 at retailers like BSTN. The MSRP is set at $110 USD.
