Skate culture and retro 80's basketball have always been kindred spirits. The Riccardo Tisci x NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka is a shoe that slyly combines both cultural elements into a creation that speaks for itself.
The sneaker remains as old school as it can be, it's those design ingredients that make the look all the while interesting. The enlarged Swoosh grabs your attention and propels you to ask "why?" with much curiosity. That is the charm of artistry and design.
Originally debuted during NYFW, this shoe is ridiculous simplicity at its finest. It's proof that design need not go overboard, a few twists here and there and a masterfully executed creation happens.
This shoe featured full-grain leather for durability, the toe perforations are taken out for a more cleaner streamlined look. rolled edges on the upper, RT logo and the Nike swoosh is debossed on the heel.
To sweeten the deal, a Lunarlon insole is thrown into the affair for a more soft and form-fitting ride. Who says designer stuff should be impractical and not fit for daily use.
