For the most part, the Nike Dunk hasn’t changed much since it was first introduced in 1985. Aside from the insertion of a padded tongue and a Zoom Air-sole unit in the heel that Nike SB gave it in 2002 when the skateboarding division was first formed, most of the changes have been minor. With the 10th Anniversary of Nike SB approaching, the brand set out to give the shoe a makeover and improve on its already impeccable lineage. In 2011, a new Dunk Pro SB will be introduced with new technical features, such as a new tread pattern for improved traction, relocated seams for a better fit, a phylon midsole for impact protection and a corded outsole which is lighter and just as durable as your standard outsole.
Watch for the newly developed Nike Dunk Pro SB to hit retailers in January 2011 and check out the “Autopsy of the Nike Dunk Pro SB” after the jump.
