The latest release from Nike SB's ongoing Orange Label series has a distinctly collegiate feel to it, coming in a Royal Blue and White "Kentucky" colourway. Inspiration for this palette is taken from the 1985 Nike "Be True To Your School" Dunk collection, created after Nike made a deal with universities including Kentucky, Iowa, Georgetown, Michigan, Syracuse, St. John's and UNLV to have the original Dunk High their team's official basketball shoe. Colouring the classic Dunk High in the colours of each college, becoming some of the best known and most influencial colourways of all time.
This new Orange Label collection consists of three iconic SB silhouettes, including the Nike SB Dunk High Pro Orange Label ISO "Kentucky" in Varsity Royal Blue/White, Nike SB Orange Label Blazer Mid in White/ Varsity Royal Blue and the Nike SB Orange Label Blazer Low Pro GT in White/ Varsity Royal Blue. As you would imagine the Dunk High has attracted a lot of heat in this iconic colourway, constructed with a White tumbled leather with contrasting Royal Blue overlays, rubber outsole and Swoosh. And then signed off with the Nike Orange Label logo on the embroidered tongue label, lace aglets and Zoom Air insoles.
But it's not just about the Dunk, elsewhere the Nike SB Zoom Blazer Mid "Kentucky" comes with a White all leather upper, White vulcanized rubber outsole and Varsity Royal Blue Swoosh on the side and heel panels. Again finished with the Nike Orange Label logo embroidered tongue branding, Zoom Air insoles and lace aglets. All of this also applies to the Nike SB Orange Label Blazer Low Pro GT shoes, except they have a leather and canvas construction, with the upper material switching from tumbled leather to canvas at the Swoosh. All three of these shoes are looking really plush, and if you're looking for something classic that'll go with anything, then the Orange Label "Kentucky" pack is for you. And as part of the Nike SB Orange Label series, this release is a limited exclusive to skate shops like Bored.
In addition to the "Kentucky" shoe pack, there's also a range of accompanying apparel, including the Nike SB Orange Label Varsity Storm-Fit DNA Jacket in Deep Royal Blue and Light Curry, with it's woodgrain watermark patterning and quilted lining. There's also the heavyweight Nike SB Orange Label Hoodie ISO Dark Russet/Dark Russet, finished with a left cuff embroidered Nike SB logo and an Orange Label tab on the side seam. Finishing off with the Nike SB Orange Label Dunk High T-Shirt, which celebrates the 20th anniversary of Nike SB with a nice little illustation of their iconic SB Dunk on the front of a Nike heritage tee, coming in Dark Sulphur and Deep Royal Blue. Move quick if you like these, as they probably won't be about for long.
