What We’re Saying: Daniel Kim’s skate brand Stingwater is crossing over into the world of footwear, teaming up with Nike SB to release a collaborative take on the Dunk Low. Following teasers that had previously been circulating online, this week Nike gives us an official look at the co-branded effort, which is scheduled to arrive on May 10.
The Stingwater x Nike SB Dunk Low is a psychedelic affair inspired by mind-altering fungi, which is where the collaboration gets its name, "Magic Mushroom." Predominantly done up in University Red, the sneaker is then detailed with safari print overlays that reference the top of a mushroom, while the inner lining mimics the gill of the fungus.
Known for its playful graphics, Stingwater has applied unconventional branding to the side of the Dunks, just above a jeweled Swoosh. On the heels, you will find "NIKE" branding embroidered in reverse. The phrase "empty your mind" is stitched behind the tongue as a reminder to search for a new perspective, marking the hidden zip pocket that is also implemented on the tongue.
With the Stingwater x Nike SB Dunk Low "Magic Mushroom" releasing on May 10, you can bide your time by browsing the best Nike Dunks for under $200 here.
