Nike SB introduces a new iteration of the Dunk Low sneaker model that is inspired by none other than Bart Simpson. The sportswear label has previously dropped a Homer colorway and a Marge colorway back in 2003 and 2007. This time around, the SB Dunk Low sneaker is detailed with Bart's signature colors of Habanero Red, Yellow, White, and Blue Hero throughout the entire silhouette.
It started with a yellow base foundation made from tumbled leather before it is overlaid with red suede details for tonal and textural contrast. It is complete with white leather at the Swoosh branding detail on the lateral side of the shoe. It's rounded out with touches of green by the Air Zoom branded insoles as a nod to his skateboard.
