While this is yet another all-red sneaker from Nike, it manages to avoid the whole "Red October" thing by using a set of materials that sets it apart from that wave. Instead of donning stuff that would earn Yeezy comparisons, this Nike SB Dunk is all velvet.

How practical is wearing a pair of velvet sneakers as the winter approaches? Who cares—those who buy stuff like SB Dunks on the regular generally aren't too worried about practicality with their footwear choices anyway.

There is no sneaker release date info available for this Nike SB Dunk High, but the arrival of official nike.com product imagery suggests its launch is coming in the next month or so.
