Nike Dunk has enlisted quite a bit of help from skate shops as well as boutiques and they’re soon to add Slam Jam to the list of upcoming Fall collaborators. Established as their signature, an upside-down Swoosh marks the heel, reflecting the subversive ideas that the retailer often considers their comfort zone. But elsewhere, the design is kept relatively simple as a nod to the silhouette’s unchanging roots in sneaker history.
Said to be a natural fit for the imprint’s ethos, owner Luca Benini has opted to deliver the silhouette in both a tonal grey and black/white colorway, each imbued with the very same motifs. Translucent soles add a subtle but quite distinct interpretation, marked above at the mid-panel and toe box with a series of ornamental perforations.
Moreover, the profile check is replaced with a synthetic mold that extends passed the ankle flap in glossy, hard shell finish.
Grab a detailed look at both pairs here and expect the Light Grey to release October 3rd exclusively at Slam Jam while the Black follows on a wider scale across retailers worldwide.
