Back in 2003, we saw the first collab between graffiti artist Futura and Nike SB. Twenty-one years later, excitement is growing for this well-known New York artist‘s next work.
In the initial months of 2023, glimpses of the Futura x Nike SB Dunk Low surfaced. As we embark on a new year, fresh images have emerged, offering a more intimate insight into the design. When we look more closely, we see that all of the shoe’s overlays feature abstract designs that resemble galaxies.
Known by most as Futura, Leonard Hilton McGurr is a well-known graffiti artist from the 1970s who worked mostly on New York City’s streets. Futura’s abstract style distinguished him from other artists of the time, allowing his art to remain relevant and exciting today.
The Futura x Nike SB Dunk boasts a vividly striking colour scheme, not likely to missed in a crowd! Crafted from breathable mesh, the upper blends blue and pink overlays for a marbled, watercolour resembling aesthetic. This distinctive element relates directly to Futura’s dynamic design, seamlessly injecting his stamp into the skate-centred iteration. Featuring the creative’s personal signature within the tongue and heel, an icy blue translucent outsole completes the one-of-a-kind flair.
