It was just a few weeks ago that Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci began teasing a new Nike collaboration, and now we're getting an official look at what they've got planned.
After putting in some serious work on the Air Force 1 in 2014, Tisci has just introduced the NikeLab Dunk RT. At its essence, this is the same Dunk DNA sneakerheads have grown to love over the years, but with an unmistakable flair and design eye that can only be attributed to Tisci.
In this preview image, we can see an exaggerated high top Dunk with an oversized white Swoosh and pull tab. There doesn't appear to be any of the colorful details that Tisci brought to the AF1, but that doesn't make these Dunks any less striking.
Although Tisci has been adamant about his love for the Air Force 1, it turns out he's a big fan of the Dunk, too. "The first pair of Dunks I had were white and red. I've been representing the brand for 25 years. I believe in the roots of the company, and always have," Tisci told Vogue.
The Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Dunk RT is equipped with a leather upper and Lunarlon cushioning and will retail for $300. A release date has been set for Thursday, February 11 via NikeLab.
