Gnarhunters' Nike SB Dunk Low Collaboration Has Removable Swooshes

Nike (NYSE:NKE +0.63%) SB tends be praised for its compelling footwear collaborations, especially its projects that involve its highly-coveted SB Dunk. And footwear fans are in for a treat this year as the Swoosh division is plotting a wide range of fresh iterations of the silhouette to deliver, one being Elissa Steamer‘s Gnarhunters x Nike SB Dunk Low colorway that has just appeared on our radar. The two parties were last spotted working together back in 2019 when they released a collaborative Blazer Mid.

From a bird’s eye view, these just might seem like any simple black and white offering, but up close you can view much of their intricate details. Upper halves of the kicks ditch the traditional smooth leathers that the model usually uses and swaps them out for stealthy felt-like textures for the toe boxes, collars and quarters while the overlays are presented with a black nylon fabric. The Swooshes can be detached as they are backed with velcro and the interiors of the shoes are lined with towel-like material. Throats also comes treated with a black exterior and comes locked down by a set of bungee laces. A Gnarhunters banner is positioned on the tongues while the word “Gnar” replaces the usual Nike branding on the heels. Both insoles are adorned with graphic imagery, the right side of which has a snorkel like photo while the left shoe sports a sunscreen-inspired image.

Peep a detailed view at the shoes above and note that these are expected to release in the coming months.

Elsewhere in the world of sneakers, Nike has unveiled an Air Force 1 “Roman Empire” colorway.

HERE'S A DETAILED LOOK AT THE NIKE DUNK LOW IN "PURPLE PULSE" AND "YELLOW STRIKE"

In addition to “Free.99,” Nike is expanding its lineup of Dunk Low sneakers with summer-ready colorways dubbed “Purple Pulse” and “Yellow Strike.” Make sure to add these fruity pairs to your seasonal rotation for a fresh look.

Both arriving in white leather uppers, the sneakers feature tonal overlays on the mudguard, eyestays, heel and Swoosh. “Purple Pulse” is dressed in textured lilac hues with a pastel purple tone serving contrast on the sides. The same theme is spotted on “Yellow Strike,” which dons a citrusy shade all over, alongside a mustard yellow color on the Swoosh. Both shoes are rounded out with Nike’s logo on the tongue tag and footbed with bright hues splashed onto the outsole.

Take a closer look above. Priced at $100 USD each, the Nike Dunk Low “Purple Pulse” and “Yellow Strike” will drop sometime this summer.

WE LOVE TOM SACHS BUT HIS NEW NIKES ARE BLAND AF

Sometimes, simple is best. It's a mentality that's driven Tom Sachs' inimitable design practice for years — Sachs doesn't necessarily create with a reductionist spirit but a lot of his work strips away extraneous elements to get at the core of what makes things interesting.

It's what makes his previous Nike sneaker collaborations so great: Sachs' Mars Yard and Mars Yard 2.0 are masterpieces of stratified design, where each piece and textile is placed in exactly the right place to affect the right result.

As a bonus, they're also beautiful, with a lovely palette drawn from Mars' terrain.

Similar utilitarian ethos informed Sachs' Mars Yard Overshoe. I mean, these weren't shoes designed for mass consumption, they were created as Sachs' studio sneakers.

The fact that these shoes became collectors' items is due to their limited stock and gorgeously simple colorways.

Which brings me to the latest Sachs x Nike footwear design, part of their ongoing Nikecraft project. The "General Purpose Shoe" is perfectly designated; it's a pretty well-rounded, inoffensive sneaker design.

"You can find the sublime in a pile of dirt," Sachs once told Highsnobiety. I heartily agree: loam has a smell, a texture, a — dare I say — personality? Each pile of dirt is distinct and those differences are beauty.

Meanwhile, Sachs' Nikecraft General Purpose Shoe lives up to its name by being Sachs' "blandest offering thus far," as Highsnobiety editor Sam Cole correctly put it.

And, to be fair, there's nothing wrong with a simple sneaker. Some of the most popular shoes of our time — Nike's own Air Force 1, the adidas Superstar, Reebok Club C — are best-loved in their hyper-versatile monochrome iterations.
