Concepts and Nike SB have reunited for a SB Dunk High Pro “Duck.” After a decade-plus relationship with Nike‘s skate-centric sub-label, Concepts has mastered the art of collaborative execution and storytelling — and this time around, it’s looking to the mallard duck for SB Dunk inspiration.

Following up 2018’s duo of wildly popular SB Dunk Lows — the “Purple Lobster” and “Green Lobster” — the “Duck” is more suited for the lake than the deep seas. Each and every piece of a mallard duck’s colorful coat is on full display here: light green, brown and navy suedes both furry and flat represent the body, shimmering green tongues and blue Swooshes nod to the aquatic bird’s head and wing ornamentation and soft orange outsoles are a tact acknowledgement of the mallard’s webbed feet.

Tongue tags are done up in yellow, cheekily reworded to say “Nike Duck Pro” on the outer half and hit with Concepts branding on the inner half. Collar lining is covered in a sportsman-approved vintage white and black duck print, reminiscent of retro wallpapers. Although this has yet to be confirmed by Concepts or Nike SB, the “Duck” may well be a homage to Robert McCloskey’s Make Way for Ducklings, the official children’s book of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

A release date for the Concepts x Nike SB Dunk High Pro “Duck” has yet to be announced, but a fall/winter arrival is likely.
