Instant Skateboards x Nike SB Dunk Low
Release Date: September 19th, 2020
Style Code: CZ5128-400
Though a long time since the start of their 25th Anniversary, Instant Skateboards has only now put the finishing touches on their Nike SB Dunk Low collaboration, a silhouette that has been teased for months now via insiders.
Inspired by the common metro bus in Shibuya, the upper – which dons a three-toned arrangement – leads with a bright blue on the mid-panel, eye stay, and ankle flap, while the accents both forward and behind contrast in neutral grey and black. The latter is more widespread relatively, however, as it not only dyes the profile swoosh but also the heel tab along with the forefoot and lace unit; its contrast embellishments, whose placement sits along the various stitching and “NIKE” branding, is far more pronounced in its yellow shading, its usage a complement to only part of the four-colored tongue tab. More interestingly, the skate shop has added an extra support to the tip of the toe box, its lifted piece a benefit to those planning on skating these. Finally, the embroidered mascot of a pup is also inspired by the canine illustration seen on the side of the transport system.
