Nike SB and New York-based chef David Chang will launch a special edition Nike SB Dunk High Momofuku. The shoe, which is dressed in a Dark Denim reminiscent of Momofuku’s aprons, is the result of a long-standing relationship between members of the skate community, the Nike SB team and the Momofuku restaurants.
Chang fell in love with Nike in ’87. According to the chef, the first visible Air: “Was one of the coolest things I’d ever seen.” He has since remained loyal to the brand through the years and is excited to partner with Nike SB.
The numbers “163” and “207” mark the sock liners, noting the addresses of David’s Fuku and Ssäm Bar restaurants in NYC, respectively. The Momofuku logo, a peach, appears on the shoe’s heel. This too is a rarity, as this marks the first time that Chang has collaborated with any partner on branded merchandise. “I don’t want to throw our logo on, like, a T-shirt,” he notes. “This one feels like it counts.”
