Valentine’s Day, a time for love, is embraced by Nike SB with a unique twist on their classic Dunk Low. Dubbed the “Valentine’s Day” edition, this sneaker is a nod to the poignant East Asian legend of the red string of fate — a mythical cord believed to connect destined lovers.
The design is subtle yet meaningful, with neutral tones dominating the shoe but with a playful nod to the legend on the insoles, where the unseen red thread connects two hands. This motif is further echoed on the tongue label, where the thread wraps around the Nike Swoosh, adding a layer of depth to the otherwise understated design.
The “Love Found” pack, which includes this special edition, celebrates the bonds of love, as symbolized by the red string of fate. The pack features two colorways, with the “Love Found” version presenting a harmonious blend of Coconut Milk, Light Bone, Phantom, University Red, and Sail. The materials are a luxurious mix of satin, plush suede, and textured tumbled leather, creating a sneaker that’s both visually and tactilely romantic. The red string makes a discreet yet striking appearance, woven into the Nike SB logo on the tongue, and the insoles depict a hand graphic with the red string tied to the pinky finger — a promise of an unbreakable bond with one’s destined partner.
