Nike SB's "City of Cinema" Dunk Low sshoe undoubtedly had folks talking in May when early samples of the sneaker landed on the internet. Now, as fresh versions of the "City of Cinema" sneaker surfaced ahead of the Holiday '24 drop, we see the Dunks have received some major updates.

First up, the much-discussed "stain" is now a thing of the past. The crisis averted, much to the relief of many fans.

The Nike SB "City of Cinema" Dunks no longer feature that brown "stain" on the midsole, which caused many Nike fans to raise a swift, crisp uproar (people said the Dunks looked like someone had taken a step in a number two).

Additionally, the latest Nike SB Dunk showcases a striking change with a new all-black Swoosh, a departure from the previous ombré-tinged design. At the same time, the midsole got a fresh coat of aged white paint, replacing the old yellow take from before.

The "City of Cinema" Dunks still wears its luxurious construction of crushed velvety touches and crackled textures, pulling inspiration from Paris' famous theaters.

ICYMI: Nike SB's "City of Cinema" Dunks are another Swoosh ode to Paris, city of lights. And city of cinema, apparently.

Yes, after celebrating the city's signature style and famous romantic atmosphere with previous Dunks, the latest velvety creation honors Paris' cinematic venues.

You can see this realized in the humble glitz of the shoe, reflecting the understated old-world elegance of Parisian movie theaters.

The first SB Dunk samples of this sneaker had a lot more vintage charm, in my humble opinion, but the latest is still a beauty, nonetheless.

Hold the stain, please.
