Nigel Sylvester has been repping Nike’s 6.0 line for quite a while now. At long last, the BMX pro got called up from the B team to get his own Dunk. The Nigel Sylvester x Nike SB Dunk High ‘S.O.M.P.’ (Standing On My Pedals) goes light on the details but they’re still dope.
In all honesty, a Raiders color scheme can do no wrong. The majority of the upper’s made up of Euphoria nubuck, i.e. the expensive stuff they use on Bespoke AF1s. Throw a gum bottom and the shoe is good money. The top panel by the ankle sports Safari print, as do the eyelets for just a bit of contrast to break up what typically would be defined as a simple shoe. Still, there are times when an understated shoe is just what’s needed in the closet and Nigel’s Dunk does it.
