Riccardo Tisci Returns with the NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT - The Drop Date

Riccardo Tisci Returns with the NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT


The NIKELAB DUNK LUX CHUKKA x RT brings highly renowned Italian fashion designer Riccardo Tisci back to the Nike Laboratory to work his magic on the Dunk.

Previously known as an ‘Air Force 1 guy’ and regarded for his work with Givenchy, Riccardo Tisci first collaborated with NikeLab on a collection of footwear that recreated the classic AF1 whilst maintaining its basketball DNA. To follow this, 2016 brought the release of Tisci’s first Dunk collaboration (the NikeLab Dunk Lux High x RT), two training shoes (the Free Train Force Flyknit x RT and the Transform Flyknit x RT) and a Chelsea boot (the Air Zoom Legend x RT). Returning again for another take on the Dunk Lux High x RT, Tisci and NikeLab have created a new mid-top design: the new NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT. The shoe, which comes in both black/white and red/white colorways, is inspired by Tisci’s interest in skate culture and retro ’80s basketball.

Exaggerated proportions continue the aesthetic of the Dunk Lux High, including the big belly Swoosh and enlarged foxing and eyestay. The shoe also retains a full-grain leather upper for durability, drop-in Lunarlon insole for ultra-soft cushioning and memory foam in the quilted leather collar and tongue for a secure and comfortable fit. Additional features include the removal of the toe perforations, deluxe rolled edges on the upper and the RT logo and Nike swoosh debossed on the heel. It’s a shoe that truly befits its creator’s style.

The NIKELAB DUNK LUX CHUKKA x RT is due to drop first on THURSDAY 23 FEBRUARY: click the banner below to check the release page with full stockist details.
