Nike SB has forged a remarkable partnership with the iconic LA streetwear label, Born X Raised, to unveil a sensational Dunk Low that pays homage to the brand's unique identity and values. As we delve into the essence of Born X Raised and take a good look over this extraordinary shoe, it becomes evident that this Nike SB creation is destined to be a classic.
Founded in 2013 by Chris "Spanto" Printup, a Venice native renowned for his dedication to celebrating the vibrant culture, Born X Raised has emerged as a cultural force to be reckoned with. Spanto's vision led him to team up with 2Tone, a Venice-based video producer with a graffiti background, and together, they embarked on a mission to craft a brand that pays homage to their Venice roots while shining a spotlight on pressing social issues.
In an era when these subjects grip cities not only across the US but worldwide, Born X Raised has garnered widespread recognition from a diverse and appreciative audience. Today, they are synonymous with the rich tapestry of LA culture and have earned coveted collaborations with iconic names such as Taco Bell, LA Lakers, Stüssy, Levis, Carhartt WIP, and the NFL, to name just a few.
Bringing us to the newest, and hottest collab. The Nike SB x Born x Raised Dunk Low Pro shoe takes inspiration from the time-honoured Japanese craftsmanship of sashiko, this trainer features an intriguing pattern of perforations adorning the toebox, forming a captivating cross-shaped motif that seamlessly extends toward the lacing system.
The White full-grain leather upper is elegantly enveloped in royal blue suede overlays, while the iconic Nike Swoosh along the sidewall boasts a mesmerizing holographic finish, creating a dynamic play of colours as you shift your perspective. Emblazoned proudly on the tongue and front, you'll find the embroidered mantra of the Los Angeles-based streetwear label, 'One block at a time,' along with their unmistakable logo tastefully stitched onto the lateral heel.
