Original Story (03/31/21): A new “Wheat and Purple” colorway of the Nike SB Dunk Low has been unveiled.
The shoe features a mixed-material construction, with dark purple leather as a base, wheat suede overlays, and Light Fusion Red suede Swooshes. Sockliners come in wheat with pink Nike SB branding, while accents on the heel, laces, and tongue tag match the red shade on the Swoosh. The upper sits atop a white midsole and dark purple outsole. Some are calling these “Reverse Papa Bear” Lows due to the color scheme being similar to the Dunk High in the ’06 3 Bears pack.
The Nike SB Dunk Low “Wheat and Purple” will see an early release on SNKRS Korea on April 3rd (dropping alongside the ACG-inspired “Celadon” colorway), with a larger release expected to hit stateside in May. Check out official images below.
