San Fransisco-based skate shop FTC and Nike‘s Nike SB sub-division have a collaborative relationship that stretches back almost a decade, and they’ve joined forces for a new take on the SB Dunk Low. Part of Nike SB’s expansive Tokyo Olympic Games SB Dunk collection, FTC’s latest is inspired by Tokyo’s famous bath houses and boasts plenty of lush, relaxing detailing.

Toeboxes, quarters and collars take on a bright blue suede, while mudguards, eyestays and heels equip a white leather with a tile-like texture for a nod to the tile floors found at many a bathhouse. Swooshes are done up in bright metallic silver, and blue FTC hits replace the standard Nike branding on the yellow heel tabs. The collar lining is made of a terry cloth-like material and is done up in yellow to match the heel tabs.

Tongue tags are highly detailed as well, with each inner half showing Japanese kanji and the front supplying a co-branded SB/FTC graphic. Each tongue is made of blue mesh that’s rimmed with yellow trim, and insoles take on a graphic that shows Mt. Fuji at sunrise and sunset. Down below, white midsoles work with icy blue outsoles to finalize the look. This marks FTC’s fourth Nike SB collaboration, following SB FC Classics and SB Blazers in 2017 plus a SB Dunk Low “Finally” in 2013.

The FTC x Nike SB Dunk Low will release later in July via the Nike webstore and SB stockists like The Berrics Canteen, but an exact date of arrival has yet to be announced. MSRP is set at $100 USD.
