In today’s sneaker game, if you aren’t participating in collaborative projects then it can certainly be difficult to garner some recognition. Labels such as Nike SB have mastered this strategy over the years and continue to impress sneakerheads both old and new alike with exciting projects, and the latest to surface onto our radar is this impending Dunk Low team-up with Skate Like a Girl — a nonprofit organization that strives to “create an inclusive community by promoting confidence, leadership, and social justice through skateboarding.”
For the entity’s collaborative offering, it opts to engineer the upper halves with suede panels. Overlays and laces match up as they are both dressed with a wine-like red, while off-white contrasts come through the collars, quarters and toe boxes. Swooshes deviate from their usual leather constructions and instead arrive with pleated textures and rosy red exteriors and the heels have been ornamented with a graphic that depicts two hands that are pulling each other up. Skate Like a Girl’s official logo is found on the tongues with an upside down Swoosh and the insoles have been treated with an array of girl skateboarders in hand-drawn fashion.
No official release date for this pair is known yet, but we’ll likely see these hit the market in the coming months.
