The Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka Is Introduced

 

Following an initial preview last month, the Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka is now officially introduced, which also proceeds their recent collaboration with the Air Zoom Legend.

The new silhouette, which is rendered in both black/white and red/white colorways, is specifically inspired by Tisci’s interest in the aesthetics of skate culture and retro ‘80s basketball.

“I think the Dunk has something that’s very special. It’s grounded in sport as well as in the street style culture,” says Tisci. “For younger generations it can fit as many different styles tribes as you can imagine. I think it’s one of the most iconic shoes that Nike has ever created.”

Exaggerated proportions from the Dunk Lux High are implemented, including the enlarged Swoosh and as well as the foxing and eyestay. Comprised of full-grain leather for durability, the model also features a removal of the toe perforations, rolled edges on the upper and the RT logo and Nike swoosh debossed on the heel. Finally, a drop-in Lunarlon insole for ultra-soft cushioning and memory foam in the quilted leather collar and tongue finish off the sleek design.

You can purchase a pair beginning February 10th at NikeLab at Bergdorf Goodman, NikeLab 21M, Dover Street Market New York, Kith BK and Concepts NYC first.

A global release at more NikeLab retailers is set for February 23rd.
