INSIDE THE VAULT

SB ORANGE BOX
Throughout the early 2000s, Nike SB was establishing its presence in the world of skateboarding. It began with simple footwear styles done up by Nike SB team riders and would eventually bubble into historic collaborations with skateshops across the nation.

For current Nike SB team rider Eric Koston, some of the earliest releases are some of his favorites.

In Nike SB earliest days, Supreme New York cooked up their first-ever collaboration with Nike in the form of the Dunk Low Pro SB. Taking inspiration from the Air Jordan III, the design came to life in two colorways; Black/Black-Cement Grey and White/Black-Cement Grey.

“You can’t go wrong with the Jordan Cement colorway. Always been a Jordan fan, Jordan 3 White/Cement has been one of my favorites.” Said Nike SB team rider Eric Koston, who picked the design as one of his all-time favorite Nike SB Dunks.

Also released early on was a simple Dunk Low Pro SB in White and Orion Blue done up by team rider at the time, Richard Mulder. “I used to trade product in skateshops to get a hold of SB’s. This was such a clean and good colorway. It reminded me of the Los Angeles team colors that I have been a fan of” said Koston as he reminisced on the design.

Also really appreciated by Koston is Gino Ianucci’s second take on the Dunk Low Pro SB. “It was pretty much a tonal shoe but the material he chose made it so sick. And because of Gino of course!" said Koston.

Beloved by Koston and many more, some of the earliest Dunk SB styles would go on to pave the way for a Nike SB footwear collection that is still growing over a decade later.
