This time around, the Givenchy creative director shifts from the Air Force 1 to another seminal hoops silhouette, the Dunk High. But if you actually thought Tisci was going to play by the rules, you couldn't have been more wrong — these are unlike any Dunk you've seen before.
The Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Dunk Lux High plays with proportions on an extreme level, adjusting the Dunk High's ankle collar to be higher than ever. Meanwhile, there's a chunky Swoosh, oversized eyestay, and upside-down heel tab to accentuate the avant-garde look. As you might expect, these are also quite premium, with details like a quilted leather collar and tongue and a drop-in Lunarlon insole for increased comfort.
"[The Nike Dunk] has been both mainstream and niche, adopted by communities of varying size and influence. But no matter the model, the Dunk has always had a cultural cachet that, as a designer, I’m quite drawn to," Tisci said.
Check out all the angles below and look for the Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Dunk Lux High to drop on February 11 exclusively in North America from NikeLab locations. A retail price of $300 is expected for these.
