Nike SB Dunk Dodgers Release Date Details
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been highlighted by Nike across various footwear over the past few years, most notably with a Jackie Robinson Dunk that was released to commemorate his 75th anniversary of breaking the MLB color barrier.
Now on deck are the Nike SB Dunk Dodgers, slated for release Friday at select Los Angeles skate shops, and via SNKRS on Saturday via a lottery process. The launch of the Dodgers Dunk this weekend comes several weeks after select stores received the highly anticipated shoe.
The blue and white design also takes inspiration from Dodger Stadium by incorporating its famous palm trees and welcome sign on the back of the tongues. The front of the tongue and the heel of the shoes have red detailing, in an ode to the color of the Dodgers jersey numbers.
The Dodgers Dunk is part of an MLB-inspired capsule from Nike that also included the New York Mets, Philadelphia Phillies and San Francisco Giants.

Previous Nike releases for the Dodgers were two versions of a Cortez shoe and the Jackie Robinson Day version of the Air Griffey Max 1.
In 2020, Nike became the exclusive supplier of MLB on-field uniforms, including base layers, game-day outerwear and practice apparel. With this came a new initiative of City Connect uniforms for teams, which were unveiled and implemented in waves.
Meanwhile, the SB Dunk comes on the heels of the Dodgers breaking the franchise’s winning record which previously stood at 106, and shared by the 2019 and 2021 teams. The Dodgers became the first team in MLB history with three consecutive complete seasons of at least 106 wins.
They are also the first to improve on the 106 wins from the previous season.
