Weartested: Nike SB Ishod Wair Dunk Low Pro

Nike Dunk是有史以来最具标志性的球鞋之一,也是Nike SB刚着手于滑板项目和品牌时推出的第一双并非常成功的鞋款。Dunk对于开创SB品牌来说是一个非常完美的鞋型,因为它有着无限的设计可能性,因此这款鞋都会是SB合作款的首选鞋型。虽然Dunk一直都在SB的项目中,但是随着一些新的像Blazer和Janoski瘦型鞋款的出现,Dunk也渐渐变得没那么受关注了。所以只有让Dunk“瘦”下来,并把它的元素与行业中一名最出色的滑手结合起来才能重塑它的辉煌。随着Nike SB项目的慢慢壮大,队伍中越来越多的滑手值得拥有他们自己的Pro鞋款了。但是,要有一双以你名字命名的鞋是非常难的,只有非常少的一部分人才有这个资格,我们几乎可以肯定Ishod Wair就是其中一个。他在2013获得过Skater of the Year荣耀,在Street League上与其他重量级滑手们同场竞技,依旧会挤出时间拍摄并发布一些令人惊叹的视频片段等等。从他工作的态度上来说,毫无疑问他将会拥有属于他自己的Dunk—-Dunk Low Pro Ishod Wair。

The Nike Dunk is one of the most iconic sneakers ever, and is also Nike SB’s first model launched to create the extremely successful skateboarding program and brand it is today. The Dunk was the perfect model to start the SB brand because it offers endless design possibilities and as a result, the shoe is a go-to choice for most SB collaborations. Although the Dunk has always been in the SB program, the success decreased with the rise of new slimmer models like the Blazer and Janoski. So…it only makes sense to slim down the dunk as well and combine it’s elements with one of the best skaters in the industry to re-introduce the success story. The larger the Nike SB program has grown, the more skaters there are on the team that are noteworthy of deserving their own pro models. However, a Nike shoe with your name on it is so hard to achieve that only the very special team members get the chance. We can pretty much all agree that Ishod Wair deserves to have his name on a shoe. He’s won the 2013 Skater of the Year award, competes in Street League with other heavy hitters, and still makes time to film and release amazing video parts etc. From his work ethic, it’s no wonder that he’d get his own edition the Dunk, the Dunk Low Pro Ishod Wair.




Nike SB Dunk Ishod Wair为正常尺码。


The Nike SB Dunk Ishod Wair fits true to size.



总的来说,Nike SB Dunk IW的耐磨性还是很不错的。有着橡胶保护和无缝线的一体式鞋头的滑板鞋通常在耐磨性方面是比较杰出的,然而Dunk IW一样都没有,只有脚趾区域非常明显的一些重要的缝线把鞋子缝在了一起。因此,在10小时滑板测试后,一些磨损和破洞的迹象也是不可避免的,但是大部分受损的区域依旧能得到充分的保护。用在鞋上的高质量麂皮给我们留下了不错的印象,它弥补了脚趾区域接缝的缺陷。另外值得一提的是swoosh标志的位置也是很讲究的,因为它被放在了更靠近脚跟的区域,这就帮助减少了标志缝线被刷坏并掉落的可能性了。鞋底本身就显示出非常出色的耐磨性,没有任何光滑的地方,从底面图案的深浅来看也不像快要被磨平的样子。


Overall, the durability of the Nike SB Dunk IW is good. Skateshoes with rubber protected or seamless one-piece toe caps, often have exceptional durability. The Dunk IW, however, does not have either; there are some important seams that hold the shoe together that are visible in the toe area. Thus, there are inevitable first signs of wear and holes after skating 10 hours but, the most attacked area is still adequately protected. The suede used in the shoe left us a good impression, being made of high quality, which compensates for the flaw in having seams in the toe area. It’s also important to note that the positioning of the swoosh is good because it is positioned more towards the heel area which helps decrease the probability of the swoosh detaching or falling off once the seams holding it to the shoe have been ripped. The sole itself showed fantastic durability. No slick spots appeared, and judging by the deep thread pattern it’s quite unlikely that some would show up anytime soon.





Nike SB Dunk Ishod Wair非常适合高冲击的滑板,它的缓冲性能非常出色。跟P-Rod 9有点相似,Nike没有用他们专利的Lunarlon技术,而是用了Zoom Air缓冲技术来代替。Nike的研发者改进了Zoom技术并在鞋垫內增加了一些提供缓冲的小单位。这些缓冲元素有效抑制了那些比较失败的着陆,这样的缓冲能力光是从走路或是蹬板的时候就能在鞋里感受得到。整个脚在Ishod新的Dunk里都能感到被很好地保护到,很有安全感。


The Nike SB Dunk Ishod Wair is well-suited for high-impact skating and the cushioning is excellent. Similar to the P-Rod 9, Nike is not using their patented Lunarlon technology, but instead, uses the Zoom Air cushioning technology. The developers at Nike adapted the Zoom technology and added a unit in the sockliner which creates the cushioning. The use of these cushioning elements enables it to dampen harsh landings and bails extremely well. The cushioning capabilities can already be felt from just walking or just pushing in the shoe. The feet feel well protected and safe in Ishod’s new Dunk.




如图所示,这双Nike SB Dunk跟经典的SB Dunk相比显得非常瘦,总的来说,中足、脚趾还有脚跟区域的形状都被剪裁得很瘦了,尤其是脚趾区域,设计得非常紧凑,这就能确保给人一个稳定安全的感觉。整体形状比较平行,两端也都显得比较钝。


As shown in the pictures, the Nike SB Dunk is extremely slimmed down compared to the classic SB Dunk. In general the shape is cut rather slim in the mid foot, toe as well as heel area. The toe area especially, is cut very tight, which helps ensure a safe and secure feeling. The shape is rather parallel, ending in a stump toe area and a blunt tip.







Dunk Ishod Wair的控板感还行,它的抓板性也比较平均,控板感比较好是因为它的鞋底不太厚,所以脚和滑板之间就没有太多的材料。而且脚趾区域和脚跟区域相比也显得更加苗条,这就能给人带来卓越的缓冲能力和一个更加真切的控板感。抓板性被评为比较平均是因为鞋底不够灵活,不足以让鞋子能形成凹面从而产生一种更直接的控板感。

Boardfeel and grip

Boardfeel of the Dunk Ishod Wair is good and grip is average. The boardfeeling is good because the sole is not too thick and thus there is not much material between foot and board. Also the toe are is slimmer compared to the heel area which creates the excellent cushioning and a solid boardfeel. The grip is evaluated as average because the sole does not really develop the necessary flexibility to enable the shoe to mold into the concave creating a direct boardfeel.




说到舒适性,这双Dunk的内衬就是这双鞋的一个亮点,所以,这双鞋无论是舒适性还是稳定性都非常出色。这双Dunk Ishod Wair有一个内部的贴合系统可以确保没有压迫点。苗条的剪裁以及麂皮与人造材料的结合就能以最少材料填充物来提供一个卓越的跟锁和稳定性。像之前提到的那样,这双鞋的稳定性很出色,刚开始的时候,鞋子确实很硬,但是渐渐的到一定程度后就不再那么僵硬,反过来倒会提供更完美的稳定性,就是刚开始的时候会不怎么舒服。

Comfort and stability

The inner lining of the Dunk is a very good feature of the shoe with regards to comfort. As a result, comfort is good and the stability is excellent. The Dunk Ishod Wair has an internal fit system which makes sure there are no pressure points. The slim fit as well as the combination of suede and synthetic material offers the perfect combination of minimal padding with a great heel lock and stability. As mentioned before the stability of the model is excellent. In the beginning the shoe is quite stiff but gradually loses this stiffness to a certain degree – this in return, creates the perfect stability afterwards but can be uncomfortable at first.



Nike SB瘦下来的Ishod Wair Dunk Pro有着杰出的稳定性,由于Zoom Air气垫包也能提供一个非常优秀的缓冲性,同时鞋子的耐磨性也是一大优点,尽管能够适应高冲击的滑板,但是它的控板感,抓板性还有僵硬程度都是有提高的潜质的。


The Nike SB slimmed down Ishod Wair Dunk Pro has outstanding stability and offers superior cushioning due to the Zoom Air bag technology. Another advantage is the durability of the shoe. Despite being very supportive for high-impact skating, the boardfeel, grip and the stiffness of the shoe have potential for improvement.
