The energy behind Nike and its Nike SB label has exploded lately, thanks to its many ties and shoe collaborations including Concept, HUF, Skate Like a Girl and many more. Adding an extra bold touch, we now have official images for Neckface’s collaborative SB Dunk Low sneakers.
The collaborative sneakers are probably one of the loudest SB Dunk Lows colorways in history, considering the outlandish uppers and designs. The bold and loud aesthetic of collaborative design can be attributed to bold and iconic Los Angeles designer Neckface.
For those unaware, Neckface is a graffiti artist known for dabbling in multiple art forms, including papier-mâché sculpture and video editing. He has become an iconic artist through his long-standing partnership with Nike and Wacko Maria.
The upcoming SB Dunk pair features the creative coverage of his gruesome art – including wicked creatures, nightmare-inspired landscapes, and captivating art – for which he is known and recognized.
The collaborative Dunk Lows are made from black nubuck and suede materials, paired with matching textile tongues and various patches.
Snake patches, creepy skull faces, swords drawn by demonic and bony hands, flames and more are featured on the silhouetted low cut with exposed stitching. Centered around the signature evocative sensibility of Neckface, designs include ghouls, demons, tombstones and more sitting on an all-black topan base.
More details are added with branding “NECK SB” tongues, embroidered mini swooshes on the trainers and custom flame pattern sock liners. The midsoles of the shoes are covered with black tape and multiple lighting patterns. The white midsoles are also branded with “SHOCKERS” lettering on the graphic tape.
Finishing off the design of the shoe, the black rubber outsoles appear in the south. Suggested to debut around the Halloween season, stealth low shoes are perfectly coordinated with spooky seasons. The shoes will be delivered in personalized packaging.
The custom packaging will feature the co-branded details, branding the collaboration and additional patches. According to sneaker page kicksonfire, the shoes are set to release on Nike SNKRS and select skate shops for a retail price of $150 in October 2022. However, the swoosh label has not revealed any official release information. One can check for updates on SNKRS.
