First released in 2005, the Nike SB Dunk Low “Raygun” was incredibly revered in the Nike SB era and now its returning with two new colorways featuring tie-dye graphics in the Nike SB Dunk Low “Raygun” Tie-Dye and the Nike SB Dunk Low “Raygun” Tie-Dye White. The sneakers were originally inspired by Rosewell Rayguns, a fictional ABA team that was the focus of a Nike ad campaign during the 2002 NBA Playoffs, and notably enough this silhouette was a known favorite from the SB founding father Sandy Bodecker, who passed away in 2018. Bodecker often sported a similar Rayguns hoodie, which ofcourse, lead to this latest release set to honor his memory with this duo of new iterations. On StockX, the Nike Dunk Low “Raygun” Tie-Dye White has amassed an average sale price of $360 USD while trading at a massive 207% over MSRP.
The Nike SB Dunk Low “Raygun” Tie-Dye is arriving in both white “Home” and black “Away” iterations and sticks to the shoe’s original design for the most part. The classic SB silhouette sees a hint of trippy tie-dye graphics added onto the quarter panels, heel tab, heel counter and insole with a “58” patch sitting clean on the inside tongue. Additionally the design’s tie-die prints come through in abstract shapes and bold hits of yellow and orange hues. Finally rounding out the shoe is a black leather forefoot and an embroidered alien graphic that appears on the lateral heel.
