UPDATE: Concepts and Nike SB will be celebrating their 10th Anniversary of the “Lobster” Dunk with an upcoming Purple colorway.
Concepts remains authentic to key design features of the original 2008 Red Lobster release. Deon Point explains why: “In terms of classics, the Dunk is amongst the elites. The OG SB in particular, has a devout following, so we opted for the original tooling. We even forewent CONCEPTS branding on the padded tongue, staying true to our first collaboration. I think the details separate it from the rest. The metallic swoosh, metallic speckle, picnic lining, and rubber brands, have all become iconic over the years.”
Following the debut “Red Lobster” release, the “Blue Lobster” followed a year later, along with a friends and family “Yellow Lobster” version.
In 2018, Concepts will be debuting the “Purple Lobster” makeup, followed by a “Green Lobster” as well as an “Orange Lobster” pair that is rumored to be a friends and family exclusive.
The “Purple Lobster” Dunk will release on Friday, December 14th exclusively at Concepts in-store (NYC and Cambridge) and online (11AM EST). A skate-shop only release will go down on Saturday, December 15th, followed by a wider release on December 17th via Nike SNKRS.
