Riccardo Tisci’s always been an “Air Force 1 guy.” His collaboration with NikeLab started long ago but now extends to a Dunk collaboration, NikeLab Dunk Lux High, Free Train Force Flyknit, Transform Flyknit and Air Zoom Legend.
Now he’s designed a new take on the Dunk Lux High x RT – the Dunk Lux Chukka – with Bella Hadid to model. The unisex sneaker is available in black/white and a red/white colorway inspired by skate culture and retro ’80s basketball.
Exaggerated proportions including the big belly Swoosh complement a leather upper and drop-in Lunarlon insole. Rolled edges on the upper and the RT logo and Nike Swoosh debossed on the rear complete. Tisci said:
“I think the Dunk has something that’s very special. It’s grounded in sport as well as in the street style culture. For younger generations it can fit as many different styles tribes as you can imagine. I think it’s one of the most iconic shoes that Nike has ever created.”The NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT will be available starting February 10 at NikeLab and at Bergdorf Goodman, NikeLab 21M, Dover Street Market New York, Kith BK and Concepts NYC. Global release starts on February 23 online and at NikeLab retailers.
