John Rattay launched his own fundraising initiative called "Why So Sad?" to raise awareness about the importance of mental health issues. Now, the pro skater and Nike SB are revisiting the issue to launch this Dunk Low. It has fancy details that are rarely used like this. Check out the official photos here.
The colourway of the Why So Sad? x Nike SB Dunk Low is very strong, but at the centre of the design is the bird of prey, one of John Rattay's signature symbols from his collection of lettering that has appeared on his previous merchandise releases. On the heels, the bird rides a bicycle, and on the insoles he is depicted with a skateboard.
Different shades of blue then adorn the Why So Sad? x Nike SB Dunk Low. Light blue marks the base and a dark blue the suede overlays. There are also additional contrasting red tongue branding and heel tabs, while typical Nike lettering is replaced with question marks and inner tongue labels come with "Why So Sad?" texts. Furthermore, the Swooshes are painted in a similar hue, but over time, the paint wears off to reveal yellow logos.
