Nike's SB division once again uses Chinese imagery as inspiration for their latest drop.
Beijing, already a cultural hub, has been the home of Nike's Action Sports store for over a year. With skateboard culture continuing to show rapid growth in the Far East, we are graced with a uniquely executed Dunk Low Premium representative of that region.
Through the use of materials and textures, all inspired by Beijing's rustic, concrete laden "hutong" neighborhoods and courtyard facades, we see antique-like textured leather applied to the upper. Meanwhile, further cultural influence can be seen on the tongue tab, as a copper lion doorknocker appears and accentuates the red and gold swoosh detail.
This Nike SB Dunk Low Premium launches in-store TOMORROW -- Saturday, September 13th -- when doors open at 11AM EST.
Remaining pairs will be made available for phone/email order as of 12 Noon EST.
