We apologize in advance to all those who can no longer see the Nike Dunk, even in paint, but there are some versions of the Peter Moore classic that are definitely worth checking out, and which we therefore owe it to ourselves to pay attention to. present as it should be on New Jordan 2020. This is the case with this new collaboration from Parra. True to form, the Dutch artist has once again revisited the Dunk in a colorful imprint that should be released in the coming weeks in an ultra-limited edition. It is more precisely a Nike SB Dunk Low Pro, which means that the pair will be suitable for skateboarding. It remains to be seen whether you will be crazy enough to walk the skateparks with such soft feet, which we are absolutely not convinced given that it will be reserved for the brand’s “ Friends & Family ” at the Swoosh, and therefore almost impossible to obtain. But that’s another story. While waiting for its release, already eagerly awaited by a privileged few, here is everything you need to know about the latest masterclass by Piet Parra.
A new colorful Parra x Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Friends & Family’
For those who have never heard of Parra, remember that he is one of the essential figures of contemporary pop culture. Author of paintings with shapes and especially colors that have become iconic, the Amsterdam native has already collaborated on several occasions with Nike in the past, notably on a superb Air Max 1 released in 2018.
Parra is therefore not at its first attempt with the American equipment manufacturer. He even worked on the Dunk two years ago. Personally, we have a small preference for this second iteration which is much more colorful than the first, despite its upper with a traditional white leather base. As you can imagine, the added value of this 2021 vintage lies in the suede overlays which give the pair some pep while forming a particularly effective “mismatch” design. Even the color of the laces differs from foot to foot, and it has to be said that it is very well done by Parra. There are welcome notes of pink, red, orange and blue. The side Swoosh, shortened for the occasion, is revealed in a black finish. Branding is personalized using the artist’s logo in white lettering found both on the heel of the left foot and in place of the mini-swoosh on the front of the right foot. Before concluding, let us specify that this Nike SB Dunk Low Pro will likely be released at the same time as a second color.
