Producers of 1-of-1 tees and boards, Carpet Company has effectively brought their DIY energy to the panels of the beloved silhouette. Light blues tint the overlays — toe cap, swoosh, eye stay, etc. — each further marked with a zoomed-in, mostly obscured print.
Working on a low-top profile equipped with fully padded inner walls and chunky foam-filled tongue that meets the needs of skaters, the VX1000 comes dressed in stealthy hues of black, grey, and white that wrap around the panels from heel to toe.
Before its sole ever touched a skate deck, the Dunk made its mark on the hardwood as a basketball shoe—but the style was eventually adopted by skateboarders for its durability and responsive boardfeel.
Artist Jason Deng created watercolor paintings representing 6 different regional dishes from 6 Chinese cities and combined them alongside a whole mess of other hidden nods to Chinese food to make a Dunk that brings the sweet, the sour and everything else.
“Turdunken” is a cheeky remix that nods to Turducken, a Thanksgiving staple dish often associated with former NFL commentator John Madden, and of course the retro basketball silhouette which is involved in this release.
atmos has effectively defined a great deal of sneaker culture, begetting multiple references as a result. The Japanese imprint is adored by Nike as the brand has honoured their usage of Elephant print as they translate this iconic colourway to the language of the SB Dunk Low.
