Dubai’s Frame Skate will also be teaming up with Nike Skateboarding to release their very own SB Dunk Low.
Dressed in a Chile Red, White, Lucky Green, and Black color scheme inspired by the colors of the Middle East. This Nike SB Dunk Low Two unlikely materials on the Swoosh, leather and corduroy, are patched together as a representation of love. The diamond ripstop on the quarter is reminiscent of the crisscross patterns of traditional fishnets that once filled the harbors.
The Black and White double tongues symbolize the equality and unity between men and women. The Black tongue has a pearl imagery to pay homage to the pearl divers, while the removable white tongue contains a falcon to reflect the falconry heritage.
Inspired by the patterns from shemagh – a Red and White checkered scarf traditionally used to protect the face and head from the desert heat and dust – is printed with a vintage aesthetic. The Black aglet at the tip of the laces also takes the detail from agal, a Black rope-like band placed over the head to hold the head scarf in place.
