Polaroid and Nike have come together to unveil their collaborative iteration of the Nike SB Dunk Low, which is set to arrive imminently.
Being a strangely fitting collaboration, Polaroid’s version of the Nike SB Dunk Low takes the now-infamous silhouette and gives it a very classic makeover, playing on the company’s multicoloured camera glare emblem. Taking to the streets of Barcelona for this campaign, photographer Sarah Muerle and Nike SB skateboarder Brian Anderson- the first openly gay skateboarder- unveiled how they navigate their own identity within skateboarding. Photographing their skating journey through Barcelona, the two underlined how skateboarding and the act of capturing it are inherently intertwined, as well as underlining its freeing nature.
Keeping the design simple, the shoe itself boasts a predominantly black upper, tongue, and set of laces, whilst utilising Polaroid’s traditional colour palette and emblem by stacking blue, yellow, and red Nike ticks on top of one another. A white midsole rises up towards the heel of the shoe, adding that extra protection when skating, with the fattened Nike SB tongue keeping its ever-present spot.
The Polaroid x Nike SB Dunk Low is set to release on April 5th via the SNKRS app.
