First Look at the Born x Raised Nike SB Dunk Low

Made in collaboration with the Los Angeles-based label.

If you thought hype surrounding Nike's SB line was dwindling, you'd be very wrong. After getting up close and personal with the Fly Streetwear and Jarritos collaborations, we're now taking our very first look at the Born x Raised Nike SB Dunk Low. A release that has been on our radar for quite some time, it's genuinely so much more than we could have ever imagined.

Made in partnership with the Los Angeles-based label, this Dunk works on top of a premium white tumbled leather base and is overlaid by blue suede panels throughout. The classic perforations across the toebox have been dropped in favor of a cross motif, and this extends to the topmost eyelets. BxR's slogan "One Block at a Time" hits the tongue in pink, while the laces are printed with "In Memory Of." Shifting your focus down below, the Zoom Air midsoles have been reworked with with a 3D block that spells out "On the Turf" around the back, and to finish if all off, the heel badge and Swoosh have both been finished with a lenticular effect that's as unique as it gets.

Not much else is known about the Born x Raised Nike SB Dunk Low at this moment in time, but it's set to drop sometime in 2023. Expected to be a pretty tough cop, make sure you keep it locked at Ox Street's dedicated SB Dunk page for a guaranteed pair, and in related news, there's something fishy going on with the Nike Dunk Low "Rainbow Trout."
