The Nike SB Dunk Low Sashiko is part of a collection that highlights the intricacies of the Japanese style of embroidery for which the shoe is named. Sashiko is a Japanese word translated as "little stabs." Nike enthusiasts can see this stitching clearly all along the upper portion of the silhouette.
The bright white laces of the Nike SB Dunk Low Sashiko stand out against the Mystic Navy/Mystic Navy-Gum Light Brown-Sail colorway of the shoe, and the midsole matches this look to create a nice contrast between the brown outsole and the double tones of the suede upper. The tongue features a lighter denim around the outer edge and a darker version across the body, and the back part of the upper going to the ankle guard also sports the more subdued tone. The front portion of the Nike SB Dunk Low Sashiko features the lighter suede, and the special stitching starts here at the bottom of the toe box and continues to wrap the entire upper in wavy lines. Both Nike and Nike SB branding round out the design with a unique, intentionally incomplete "Swoosh" present on the sides of the shoes.
The Nike SB Dunk Low Sashiko released in August 2020 and retailed for $110.
