NikeLab Riccardo Tisci: ’80s Basketball and a Nike classic

In his previous collaborations with the Oregon based sportswear giant, Tisci designed the  NikeLab Air Zoom Legend x RT which came into stores on 8th December – and the Aqua Boot was an instant hit. The latest collaboration presents a new twist on a particular shoe which Riccardo Tisci describes as one of Nike’s stalwarts.  ‘I think it’s one of the most iconic shoes that Nike has ever created”,  the designer explained.  Using inspirations such as  ’80’s basketball, skate culture and all manner of retro sportswear, Tisci designed the new NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT with today’s sportswear collector in mind “I think the Dunk has something that’s very special. It’s grounded in sport as well as in the street style culture,”.

Colour combinations of the NikeLab Riccardo Tisci collaboration, such as deep black and white, or a red swoosh on white base fit the designer’s gothic streetwear aesthetic to perfection. The memory foam cushioning and quilted leather tongue provide ultimate comfort for wearers. To get yourself a pair, start queuing early – the NikeLab Dunk Lux Chukka x RT is available globally from February 23rd and February 10th in America. Welcome back NikeLab Riccardo Tisci.
