Parra and Nike have another collaboration on the way. After the success of last year’s Air Max 1, the two legendary partners have teamed up for a bright new take on the Nike SB Dunk Low, launching this Summer.
The Nike SB Dunk has had a second lease on life in recent years, thanks to a resurgence in popularity amongst fashion and sneakerheads. While some of the histories of the Nike Dunk may be lost on more recent heads in the sneaker community, they are well known by one of Nike’s longest running collaborators, Parra. Founded by Pieter Janssen (AKA Piet Parra), a Dutch graphic designer and illustrator, Parra has been applying their unique graphics to apparel since the mid-2000s. Back in 2005, Piet Parra worked with Nike to help design the Nike SB Zoom FC. Now, his story arc comes full circle with the latest from Nike SB & Parra.
The Parra x Nike SB Dunk Low is easily one of the best new Dunk releases of the year, and it’s not even out yet. The shoe is largely constructed from plain white leather, though this is the most basic part of the shoe. The Swoosh on either side features four total layers to it, fading from bright pink to red, then maroon, then finally blue in the back. This same color scheme is found on many of Parra’s recent works, as well as the inside lining of this Nike SB, which appears as an abstract geometric pattern. Nike SB & Parra logos are embroidered on either heel to match, while the Parra cursive script on the tongues complete the look.
