As hinted at by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci last week, the designer will collaborate once again with Nike Lab on a shoe, this working off of the Lux version of the popular Dunk High silhouette. The Nike x RT shoe will include a exaggerated swoosh and collar. Retailing at $300, the shoe features a leather upper and Lunarlon sole and will launch on February 11th, exclusively in North America NikeLab retailers and on nike.com/nikelab. No doubt, there will be multiple colorways, similar to Tisci’s Air Force 1 collaboration with Nike.
“The Nike Dunk has a fascinating legacy. It 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,” said Tisci, who says he first wore a version of the shoe as a basketball player in his youth,
