Camo Green: A High-Profile Low Top
Nike has one objective in 2017, and that is to maintain its number one spot in the sneaker world. The Dunk Low SB Pro is a low top sneaker that is high profile with its sleek, smooth look. Camo Green takes the classic silhouette to a new, edgier level.
Nike proves that its sneakers don’t have to be high tops to make a big impression, and with Camo Green, Nike makes a major statement. While the Nike Launch page for the sneaker touts the camo pattern as “classic,” it’s actually what makes this low top an unconventional, high-fashion sneaker. It’s certainly the boldest take on the Dunk Low SB Pro since its initial release over 10 years ago.
Down to Earth Tones
Camo Green might be the ultimate edgy kick-off to the new year, but part of the splendor of the sneaker is its neutrality. Earth tones extend the fashion shelf life of almost any piece of clothing, and the same is true for Camo Green as a sneaker. Of course the purpose of camo is to blend in, but not on the street in this case.
Camo Green aims to be a highly-anticipated “neutral universal” in any wardrobe or season. It aligns itself with the celebrated neutrals of Winter 2016 with olive undertones as its base color. It also stays on track with Pantone’s Spring 2017 Colors, whose hues include two camo-inspired greens. So whether you’re back to basics in your wardrobe, or want to experiment with earth tones, Camo Green is a sure bet this week.
Performance or Fashion?
One thing remains true with the military fashion trend: you can’t tire out fatigues. Whether it’s on the battlefield or in the concrete jungle, the camo color scheme is one of the most iconic American looks of the 20th and 21st centuries. It’s no covert mission, and certainly no surprise, that Nike is the ultimate agent of fashion. So that begs the question, is the Camo Green Dunk Low SB Pro a performance, or a fashion sneaker?
It’s safe to say that the Camo Green Dunk Low SB Pro is a little bit of both. We’ve covered the fashion, but what about the performance aspects of it?
The Nike SB line was originally created for skateboarding in the early 2000’s, but its design elements go beyond a single sport. The sole of the Dunk Low SB Pro rocks a pivot circle located at the ball of the foot.
It might sound like, and even look like, a very basic feature, but it’s quite the opposite. In the sneaker market, very few major brands have soles featuring similar technology. Even fewer can execute it as well as Nike does. Nike even balances its gliding pivot point with backseat traction toward the heel. That’s the kind of balance that puts the wearer in the driver’s seat, and why Nike’s customer-first attitude continues to be a true credit to its brand.
