As we enter the new year, Nike is gearing up to present a variety of collaborative kicks to begin 2023. Nike’s skateboarding division is set to team up with creatives around the globe for their take on the classic Dunk model. From its highly-anticipated union with hip-hop duo Run the Jewels to Jarritos‘ tasty rendition of the Dunk Low, Nike is now tapping Californian retailer Pawnshop Skate Co. for its own SB Dunk High that has received official imagery.
The high-top silhouette has been fashioned with an elegant finish, sporting black and brown premium leather uppers and gilded details representing the So-Cal skate scene.
Rich brown tones on the toe boxes and medial Swooshes are subtly delivered, while the latter sees golden perimeter accents that extend from the rears. Black panels are seen across the pair, decorated with Pawnshop Skate Co.’s “Wing & Wheel” emblem embroidered into the ankle flaps and stamped on the dual-branded insoles.
Standard black laces sit atop the tongues, while the top eyelets boast metallic ornamentation, and light brown suede liners add contrast to the design. Finally, leather tongue tags boast gilded branding and feature matching text detailing the shop’s lengthy history in the Covina skate community.
The Pawnshop Skate Co. x Nike SB Dunk High is stacked on white midsoles and black rubber bottoms and will be supplied with special boxing and extra laces.
Take a closer look at the Pawnshop Skate Co. x Nike SB Dunk High in the gallery above, and expect the collaboration to release via Nike and select retailers in the coming months for $125 USD.
