Sean Malto’s Rendition Of A Dunk Revolutionizes The Iconic Shoe

It’s no secret that Sean Malto endured one of the worst injuries ever sustained on a skateboard but, since his recovery, he’s been stacking clips patiently. As his part debuts this week, there’s even bigger news on the horizon…

Coincidentally, Nike SB is celebrating 15-years of their highly popular Dunk and are releasing Sean’s take on the iconic model. Hosting samurai imagery and detail-specific stitching throughout, Malto’s customization of the Dunk went far beyond anyone’s imagination and generated the Dunk Elite.

Debuting on March 2nd, the Nike SB Dunk Elite is not your ordinary team model. Showcasing a durable knit upper with suede overlays will give off a sock-like feel that’s otherwise unknown amongst Dunk enthusiasts far and wide. Even more surprisingly, Sean opted for a thinner forefoot area and maintained the beloved Nike Zoom Air unit in the heel for support purposes.

Essentially, a newly constructed Dunk will be released this week and, given its technological advancements, expectations are high. Malto’s inspired Dunk will be released online and in-store at select skate shops and will retail for $115.

    Wouldn’t it be safe to say, that Sean had really NO input on the shoe beyond the colorway and deco stitching…?

    Beyond that, it’s still the dunk low elite that’s going to be released in several other colorways, and not attributed to Sean in any way shape or form.

      It probably did have at least rider feedback from Malto, but you’re probably right.
      That’s kind of how it goes though, otherwise most of the sb team would be just in janoskis.

    It would be cool if the suede was rubberized to some extant. I like the shoe, good colors, clear sole looks absolutely dope especially with that rounded sole at the toe, and I bet the cush is extreme. But way way too expenisve. Yikes
