Although skateboarding legend Keith Hufnagel is no longer with us, the legacy he created continues to live on.
HUF is celebrating 20 years and is more popular than ever, especially in Japan, and according to sources, a fourth HUF x Nike SB collab is on the way in the form of the Nike SB Dunk Low. Most iconically known for their collaborative Nike SB Dunk High and SB Air Trainer 1, HUF is working with Nike SB for another coveted collection.
HUF x Nike SB Dunk Low “San Francisco”
Paying homage to Keith’s adopted city of SF, the sneaker features a white pebbled leather upper with black pebbled leather overlays throughout. The Swoosh is seen in grey, as well as the heel tab with the heel of the sneaker featuring the SF skyline, similarly seen in the HUF x Nike Air Max 1 sample with “KEITH FOREVER” stitched on the heel tab in the SF Giants-style font. HUF branding is seen on the toebox with a Sail midsole and black outsole finishing off the sneaker.
HUF x Nike SB Dunk Low “New York”
Tapping into Keith’s home city of NYC, the sneaker features a navy pebbled leather base with white pebbled leather overlays. HUF branding is seen on the toebox with the NYC skyline stitched on the heel. The midsole is seen in Sail with a navy outsole finishing off the sneaker.
HUF x Nike SB Dunk Low F&F
The sneaker takes after two of HUF’s previous collabs with Nike, the Air Max 1 and the SB Dunk High. The grey and green colorway takes after the AM 1, with the tie-dye quarter panel taking after the SB Dunk High. HUF branding is seen on the toebox with the skyline on the heel and a grey midsole and anthracite outsole finish off the sneaker.
Inspired by HUF’s staple cities, the HUF x Nike SB Dunk Low “San Francisco” colorway, HUF x Nike SB Dunk Low “New York” colorway, and the HUF x Nike SB Dunk Low F&F round out the collection. The signature tie-dye print will make its way on the Dunk’s main panel along with HUF branding and other details. Underneath the leather quarter panels feature a canvas tie dye print in their respective colorways, taking after the collaborative Nike SB Dunk High from 2004.
The HUF x Nike SB Dunk Low is expected to drop sometime this year via Nike SB skate shops and possibly SNKRS. Stay tuned to Nice Kicks and our Sneaker Release Dates page as we learn more. Keith Forever.
