When the Nike SB Dunk Low gets a thematic release its always done properly. The latest story that the sneaker is telling is one of Beijing's hutongs or narrow alleys formed by lines of siheyuan, traditional courtyard residences.

In turn the Nike SB Dunk Low "Beijing" is a thorough colorway that plays textured leather against soft suede in a manner that echoes the city's architecture. The point is further driven home by a dragonhead door knocker that graces the tongue of the shoe as red and gold accents pop up to give it a bit more flare.

Word on the 'hutong' is that these will be an asia exclusive which is very fitting and plays even heavier into the theme. All we can say is that there's always eBay.
