Lewis Marnell dominated the Melbourne skate scene and was one of Nike SB’s first Australian riders. Lewis passed away from complications with diabetes in January 2013 and five years later, this Nike SB Dunk Mid Pro, a favorite of Marnell’s, celebrates and pays tribute to the skater who set the standard for Nike SB in Australia.
Dressed in a Cappuccino, Wheat and Bronze color scheme. This Nike SB Dunk Mid features a premium upper, in a colorway Lewis made his own, is decorated with his iconic lion graphic on the heel. “Lewis skated Dunks all the time. He made them look so fresh, that we all wanted to own them so we could look the same,” says Shane O’Neill.
In honor of Lewis and what he meant to the skate community and Nike SB family, Nike made a donation to a non-profit foundation for the benefit of diabetes research.
