Anybody who has made their rounds in the blogging world have more likely then not come across multiple looks of the upcoming Nike Dunk High created in association with the upcoming sophomore motion-picture from LAIKA, Coraline. LAIKA is headed by none other then Phil Knight, Nike’s well-known chairman. In a project set-up by the next generation of creative talents, W+K12 (sponsored by creative agency Wieden + Kennedy), Nike’s iconic Dunk was re-produced in a DIY aesthetic relating to the animated movie Coraline. The shoe’s upper includes a number of interesting additions and props as well as special packaging. Directed by Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) and based on a story by Neil Gaiman, the movie’s premise involves a young girl who inadvertently stumbles into an alternate albeit it better universe with a number of twists. Given the track record of all the parties involved, this latest film should not disappoint. As mentioned, Coraline hits theaters February 6th with a chance to win 1 of a 1000 pairs following the credits.
Big shout-out to Rob Heppler and the WK12 crew for the hook-up!
