The silhouette chosen for this collection is the Nike Dunk Low, crafted with a luxurious suede material in a striking blend of black and red shades. The design of Kaneda’s well-known jacket has inspired the embroidered pill featured on the classic Nike Swoosh.
This release is especially notable as it is a collaboration between three highly influential players in the streetwear industry: Nike, Katsuhiro Otomo, and Hiroshi Fujiwara’s Fragment Design.
These sneakers reflect Otomo’s admiration for American pop culture and boast a vintage aesthetic, harkening back to iconic Nike models such as the Nike Hyper, Nike Lahar, and Nike Travis Scott Low. Overall, the sneakers possess a clean and sophisticated appearance, with Otomo’s signature printed elegantly on the heel label.
The Nike Dunk Low is an excellent choice for individuals who appreciate a relaxed and fashionable appearance that can be dressed up or down.
The Katsuhiro Otomo x Nike Dunk Low “Kaneda’s Bike” collection is slated for release on December 12 and is anticipated to be a crowd favorite. We recommend marking your calendars and securing your pair before they sell out!
