Following his foray on the Air Force 1 that turned heads and created new fans for both the designer and famed silo, Riccardo Tisci is back with the Swoosh on the NikeLab Dunk Lux High.
When it comes to the twist and turns the Dunk has taken in the last three decades, the Givenchy head honcho is very aware. “The Nike Dunk has a fascinating legacy,” Tisci says. “It has been both mainstream and niche, adopted by communities of varying size and influence. But no matter the model, the Dunk has always had a cultural cachet that, as a designer, I’m quite drawn to.”
Aesthetically, Tisci’s take on the Dunk sees a higher cut, big belly Swoosh and a Black/White palette on this introductory take. Functionally, a drop-in Lunarlon insole puts pep in each step while memory foam backing creates comfort and custom fit around the tongue and collar.
