Cork seems to be invading all of our favorite Nike shoe models, and that is ok.

Nike has utilized cork materials on their popular models including Lebron's shoe, air max, and this cork colorway of the Nike SB Dunk High.

Last January, we featured a dope Nike SB Dunk High Cork custom by JBF Custom. It has sparked a lot of attention which is probably why Nike decided to create their own version for us SB heads.

Not much has changed really between Nike's creation and the custom. It's still entirely made up of the cork material with black suede paneling but instead of the gum sole, Nike SB has replaced it with a white sole. It also has black nubuck accents on the Swoosh and toe box to tone down the cork materials. Overall, the Nike's version is a very clean one and should be on anyone's radar. But then again, I still think that the custom is much better as the execution and the details were superb (see images below and compare it to the image above to see the difference).

No word on a release date yet, but stay tuned to SkateShoesPH for any upcoming information.
