It’s been said that pictures are the only language to be understood virtually anywhere in the world… the same holds true for a slick pair of sneakers. Nike SB’s latest collaboration with Bay Area skateshop Atlas take this concept to heart with an exploration of our mutual love of photography. From out of darkroom and into the light comes a special limited-release Nike SB Dunk Low focusing both on the frozen magic moments and those beloved devices that capture them.
Taking inspiration from legendary camera bodies that are easily as aesthetically pleasing as the images they create, the Atlas x Nike SB Dunk Low sports a stark, minimal black and Wolf Grey colorway coupled with bright flashes of Challenge Red for flair. Utilizing a bold composition of contrasting smooth split leather overlays and embossed nubuck underlays, the real prize here lies beneath with customized soles both in and out featuring the work of legendary Bay Area lensmen Mark Whiteley and Joe Brook. Extraordinary.
