NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka X Riccardo Tisci
Before last year, Riccardo Tisci had been known as an “Air Force 1 guy,” first collaborating with NikeLab on a collection of footwear that re-imagined the classic shoe through its roots in basketball culture.
2016 brought the release of Tisci’s first Dunk collaboration, the NikeLab Dunk Lux High x RT.
But for 2017 RT and NikeLab have created a mid, the new NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT.
The shoe comes in both black/white and red/white colour ways, and is specifically inspired by Tisci’s interest in the aesthetics of skate culture and retro 80’s basketball. The shoe 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.
We’re definitely fans! We love how simple this collection is, and we definitely prefer the mid opposed to the former High release.
The NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT will be available globally starting February 23 at NikeLab retailers and on nike.com/nikelab
