Air Jordan Aesthetics Jump Out the Gym on FPAR x Nike SB Dunk Collab

Originally owed to Michael Jordan and Tinker Hatfield but recently relevant because of Travis Scott, the Air Jordan 6 is red-hot right now. Unexpected but on time is the very dope Forty Percent Against Rights x Nike SB Dunk High.

Though the OG Air Jordan 1 is certainly adjacent to the OG Dunk built for basketball, this hybrid high top takes the tongue from the AJ6 and stamps it with Nike SB branding both on the pull tab and lace cover. Like Travis’ collab, co-branding appears on the lace lock.

While AJ6 inspiration is obvious, an #AJ5 hashtag requires a slightly deeper look. Living up to its notation, this pair sports a ventilated mesh aesthetic on the Swoosh, playing off the sidewall of Mike’s 1990 favorite.

We’ve seen plenty of “J Pack” Dunks that pull style cues from classic Jordans graphically, but this is a whole new level in regards to tooling.

Created by Tetsu Nishiyama of WTAPS fame, the FPAR Dunks are dropping sooner than expected considering this first look.

According to Hypebeast, pre-order for the FPAR Nike SB Dunk High will take place at a special ISETAN MEN pop-up shop beginning on Wednesday, October 23rd in Tokyo. The sneaker is then expected to see a wider release on Friday, October 25. Select shops such as Unheardof have already received their pairs.

Keep it locked to Nice Kicks for more details and contact your local SB account for availability. For a complete history of Nike SB Dunks, click here.
