In 2002, Nike introduced us to Nike Skateboarding, also known as Nike SB. They brought us the Nike SB Dunk Low with a padded tongue and collar and 'Zoom Air' soles. At first, the model was quite underrated, but now the sneaker seems to be making a comeback. We have listed ten pairs of the best Nike SB Dunk sneakers here that are currently available for resell prices at StockX. Read on, and maybe treat yourself to your favourite pair!
1. Nike SB Dunk High Carpet Company | CV1677-100
Where to start when talking about the Carpet Company x Nike SB Dunk High? In every design by Carpet Company you see the love for design of the brothers Ayman and Osama Abdeldayem. So also in this collaboration with Nike Skateboarding. The sneaker has many special features. You do not have to worry when your shoe wears out. Under the beautiful top layer, there is a yellow layer that looks stylish and vintage. In addition, the texts on the heels are bent under another thin layer. One of the heels says 'Brought To You By The Habibis At Carpet Company'. Super comical and unique.
The sneaker dropped in March 2021 and all you need to know about it is a quote from one of the designers:
"The Carpet Dunk is probably one of the most complex Dunks to come out in a long time (…) There's a lot going on. There's two layers of graphics, there's screen material, there's a whole bunch of stuff."

Other notable features include Yangchun noodles, chopsticks and 10-cent copper coins. In addition, the four laces are inspired by four flavourings in Chinese cuisine: green (shallot), yellow (ginger), white (garlic) and black (pepper).
The left and right shoe have both been given their own style. The right shoe is the most colourful of the pair. From rainbow colours processed in a paint-like manner to a copper-coloured toebox. The contrast is great with the left shoe, as it has a more neutral base.
