Nike SB Dunk Low Phillies

Coming out the gates swinging, the Nike SB Dunk Low Phillies made its debut in early June of 2022. The sneaker pays homage to the famous Philadelphia baseball team. This was an instant crowd pleaser, whether you are a Phillies fan or not. This SB Dunk Low features the bold blue, red, and white colorway throughout. Smooth leather is featured on the base while the overlays are a rich suede. To complete the Philly-theme, you will find a Philly cheesesteak and Liberty Bell motif on the inner tongues of each sneaker. 

Most Expensive Sneaker This Week

Nike Dunk Low SP Chocolate

The Nike Dunk Low SP Chocolate is an honorably unique sneaker from Richard Mulder and the talented LA-based designers at Chocolate Skateboarders. The shoe’s art direction pays homage to Keenan Milton— the late legendary Chocolate Skateboarder who passed away in 2001. The sneaker last sold for a whopping $3550. A high price for a priceless sneaker.
