Riccardo Tisci’s second Nike sneaker collaboration is almost here, and we’ve got the best look yet courtesy of Nike and Sneaker News.
This time around, the Givenchy creative director shifts from the Air Force 1 to another seminal hoops silhouette, the Dunk High. But if you actually thought Tisci was going to play by the rules, you couldn’t have been more wrong — these are unlike any Dunk you’ve seen before.
The Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Dunk Lux High plays with proportions on an extreme level, adjusting the Dunk High’s ankle collar to be higher than ever. Meanwhile, there’s a chunky Swoosh, oversized eyestay, and upside-down heel tab to accentuate the avant-garde look. As you might expect, these are also quite premium, with details like a quilted leather collar and tongue and a drop-in Lunarlon insole for increased comfort.
“[The Nike Dunk] has been both mainstream and niche, adopted by communities of varying size and influence. But no matter the model, the Dunk has always had a cultural cachet that, as a designer, I’m quite drawn to,” Tisci said.
Check out all the angles below and look for the Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Dunk Lux High to drop on February 11 exclusively in North America from NikeLab locations. A retail price of $300 is expected for these.
