UPDATE (9/19/2023): Born x Raised took to Instagram to announce that their highly anticipated Nike SB Dunk collaboration will release on September 28.
UPDATE (6/6/2023): According to a Nike statement issued to Complex, the release of the Born x Raised Nike SB Dunk Low has been postponed. This news comes after the tragic news that Born X Raised Founder Chris “Spanto” Printup died in a car accident.
Spanto’s Born x Raised brand has been celebrating Los Angeles since 2013. After footwear collaborations with Reebok, Vans, Converse, and more, the Venice-born brand is adding its twist to the Nike SB Dunk Low.
The sneaker is constructed with a white leather base, mesh tongues, and blue nubuck overlays. The message ”One Block at a Time” appears embroidered on the tip and the “Born SB” branded tongue tag. “In Loving Memory” is heat pressed into the shoelaces, which are finished off with Born x Raised branded tips. The heel includes “On The Turf” 3D text on the midsole that also appears printed on the sneaker’s inner tongue tags.
The most dynamic details on the sneaker are the unique perforations on the toebox and top eyelets and the holographic swoosh and heel tag, which has “Born SB” on one and normal Nike SB branding on the other. The look is completed by a white midsole and semi-transparent blue outsole.
The draw for the Born x Raised x Nike SB Dunk Low opens on July 21st at 10 a.m. on the Nike SNKRS app. They will also be available to purchase at select skate shops for $130.
