In 2019, designer Tetsu Nishiyama used his creativity to bring elements from two classic Jumpman models in the Air Jordan 5 and Air Jordan 6 and applied them to the SB Dunk High. Fast forward two years later, and the Japanese designer is readying a brand new footwear offering: the FORTY PERCENT AGAINST RIGHTS x
Rather that use a traditional leather material to make up the base layer, Nishiyama employs a smooth buttery suede material across the upper in a “Medium Grey” hue. From there, the shoes show off a bit of a wild side as the forefoot overlays, Swooshes and heels have been fashioned with snakeskin textures, all of which are dialed to a “Cool Grey” tone. On the exterior, Nike SB and FPAR branding splits between the left and right shoes in the form of jeweled lace dubraes and embroidered text on the heels. Moreover, you’ll find the right shoe’s tongue graced with a Nike SB hit while the left side’s tongue has been flipped inside out.
As of now, these are scheduled to drop overseas via SNKRS on December 20. A stateside release has not been confirmed yet.
