Editor’s Notes: Celebrating 10 years of collaborations with Nike SB, Boston-based retailer Concepts has reached back to its very first Nike SB collab with the Concepts x Nike SB Dunk “Purple Lobster.” The project pays homage to Concepts’ Nike SB Dunk “Red Lobster,” which dropped in 2008 and was followed a year later by the equally sought-after “Blue Lobster.”
Speaking about the design, Concepts creative director Deon Point says, “What Nike SB did in the beginning still resonates with our current consumer. We felt compelled to pay homage to a defining moment for our brand. Mixing the color palettes of the red and blue versions seemed like an appropriate way to do that without tarnishing the legacy of the original versions.
“In terms of classics, the Dunk is amongst the elites. The OG SB, in particular, has a devout following, so we opted for the original tooling. We even forwent Concepts branding on the padded tongue, staying true to our first collaboration. I think the details separate it from the rest. The metallic Swoosh, metallic speckle, picnic lining, and rubber bands have all become iconic over the years.”
