Everything started in 2002 when Nike SB and Supreme partnered up to make the first-ever skate-specific Dunks. Ever since that first pair, Nike has been cranking out endless new colorways and collaborations for their SB Dunks. Some of the top SB dunk collabs include Staple x Nike SB Dunk “Pigeon”, Off-White x Nike Dunk Low, Stussy x Nike Nike SB Dunk Low “Cherry”, and Travis Scott x Nike SB Dunk Low “Cactus Jack”. The list just goes on and on. Today, with so many colorways for the SB Dunks, we are going to focus on the brightest and most colorful SB Dunk colorways to match your loudest outfits.
This pair of canvas high-tops come in Urban Orange/White/Bamboo.
If you are looking for lots of color and mismatch patterns, then the Thomas Campbell What The Dunk is right up your alley. This High-Top Dunk has multiple designs stitched together on each shoe, possibly making this one of the most colorful and mismatched pair of SB Dunks on the market.
CAUTION! Wet Floor! This was the inspiration for this pair of Dunks. The “Wet Floor” colorway came to life after a Nike campus custodian talked Nike SB into letting him design a Custodian Pack. The colorway is made up of Tour Yellow/Black/White with some Red showing up on the heel tab and heel stitching.
The Dunk SB Mid Premium Peacock, also known as the “Crew Peacock”, comes in Teal suede with a Gold and Black floral swirl design. The liner is red, and there is a Teal Velcro strap with SB Embroidered on the end of the strap.
Modeled after the infamous villain from He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. The colorway consists of Baltic Blue/Varsity Purple/Black.
Baltic Blue is seen on the toe shell, quarter, heel tab and tongue tag. Varsity Purple is seen on the Swoosh, liner, and sole. The upper toe box, side panel, tongue, laces, and sole are black.
Another incredibly unique colorway is the Picnic. The entire shoe is covered in a red and white plaid canvas that resembles a picnic blanket.
There are also embroidered ants crawling around in a single file line. On the side panels, there is an all-white terrycloth Swoosh. The tongue and midsoles are also white.
Marge Simpson is a name that quite possibly everybody on earth has heard of before. The Simpsons have been on television since 1989, and are they are currently on their 31st season with a whopping 639 episodes.
Nike knows what is popular, so they made a pair of High top SBs inspired by the Simpsons mother, Marge. The colorway is Zest yellow, Radiant Green, and Blue because of the color of Marge’s skin, hair, and dress.
Another High-Top SB modeled after a popular cartoon character is the “Quagmire”, inspired by Glen Quagmire from Family Guy. This time the kicks are designed to resemble Quagmire’s blue pants and red shirt with yellow flowers.
The shirt pattern is red suede with yellow stitched flowers and is seen on the side panel. The rest of the shoe is blue, and the midsole is white with a yellow stripe.
This colorway is similar to the Wet Floor colorway because it is made up of two types of leather in Tour Yellow. The overlay trim is all Tour Yellow crackled leather, and the rest is smooth leather in the same color. The Swoosh is Chrome with a hint of teal peeking out. There is also teal branding on the heel tab.
Concepts and Nike teamed up to make Concepts Nike SB Grail Collection. The collection has a Nike SB Dunk Low, Nike SB Dunk High, and a Nike SB Stefan Janoski Max. All of the kicks in this collection are colorful and unique, but today we will highlight the “Mosaic” Dunk Low.
The shoes upper is made from a flashy color-changing iridescent material. They also sport a golden skull lace lock and a translucent outsole. One shoe has a blue tongue, and the other has a red tongue giving a fresh mismatch look to the pair.
Skate or Die was the pioneer of skateboarding videogames that came out back in 1998. In 2008 they paired up with Nike to make a Dunk Low SB.
This pair is modeled off of the game’s cover and includes Blue/Neon Yellow/Orange/Black. The backside suede has cool retro designs on it that looks sort of like the carpeting in old school arcades.
