A decade after the group first hooked up with Nike – and several years too many since every Tom, Dick and Harry picked up a (probably) unofficial tee from Primark – this week sees the resurrection of De La Soul x Nike SB.
Like the Dunk Lo that preceded it, the new Dunk Hi silhouette looks to the cover of the trio’s debut album ‘3 Feet High And Rising’ for its bright aesthetic, combining elements of the flowers and the band’s portraits with a clean white (leather) canvas.
Only a limited number of trainers have been produced, with the official European release this Friday (6th) at Carnaby Street’s Nike SB store. Available from 10 a.m., those early enough to guarantee themselves a pair will also receive a copy of Trugoy, Posdnuos and Maseo’s debut on 12” vinyl.
We suggest you get working on those ‘sorry I’m late…’ excuses.
