Editor’s Notes: After months of leaks and teasers, Concepts and Nike have officially announced their highly-anticipated Dunk High collab. The duo is known for its out-of-this-world projects (like the Lobster Dunks) but this collab might just take the cake (or should we say turkey?).
Inspired by the Turducken (which is a chicken stuffed into a boneless duck, stuffed into a boneless turkey), the Concepts x Nike Dunk High “Turdunken” features colors and textures inspired by a duck mallard. It arrives in a turkey oven-themed box alongside chicken and turkey-inspired accessories, such as chicken foot socks and a turkey leg Nerf vortex football.
“We’ve always had a tongue-in-cheek approach to our collaborations, and with Nike SB they really let us lean into that and run with any idea we have,” Concepts’ Deon Point tells Highsnobiety. “Since our first collaboration together, we realized this approach resonated with consumers and so we’ve continued on that same trajectory.”
If that’s not enough to get your mouth watering, Nike SB (and the holiday season) might not be for you. In addition to the sneakers, Concepts is dropping a line of Nike SB apparel that includes a beanie, t-shirt, and flannel jacket.
“My favorite part of the shoe is just the humor in it,” Point adds. “I had so much fun creating this shoe with the team and I hope that can be seen in the final product.”
The Concepts x Nike Dunk High “Turdunken” drops on November 14 at Concepts, as well as on Nike SNKRS on November 11.
