Known for its thought-provoking motifs, FORTY PERCENT AGAINST RIGHTS is the first brand helmed by WTAPS head Tetsu Nishiyama, and it’s now brought a bold new style to the Nike SB Dunk High, one that’s inspired by the Air Jordan 5 and Air Jordan 6.


Dressed entirely in stark black leather, this high-top Nike SB Dunk mostly retains its standard shape, but also adds bold new accents; for starters, the tongue is all Air Jordan 6, complete with a lace smock on the throat and signature cut-out detailing towards its peak. Slight alterations are provided by exposed foam on the top and a “Trust No One” text hit printed on the inside. Also of note is that there’s no Air Jordan branding to be had, as it’s replaced by Nike SB hits in both of its standard resting places on the throat and tongue. The lace toggle presents a hybrid Swoosh/FPAR embellishment, and there’s also a heel tab/rubberized heel piece complete with more FPAR graphics.


Where the tongue draws from the AJ6, the quarter panel looks to the AJ5, dressing the first half of its Swoosh in the plastic netting that’s the signature piece of Michael Jordan‘s fifth shoe. Meanwhile, the latter half switches back to leather and adds a debossed “Don’t Follow Me” stamp. A black midsole and outsole complete the look. That’s not all that’s special here though, as the shoes also come packaged in a corrugated plastic box.

Apart from presenting a unique look, these Dunks are a clever nod to one of FPAR’s predominant principles — namely that any piece of original artwork that’s changed at least 40% no longer has its rights. A tentative release date of October 25 has been announced, but stay tuned for more details.

In the meantime, get a closer look at Travis Scott‘s Air Jordan 6 “Cactus Jack.”
