Nike SB is having a creative renaissance of sorts; the full-on themed sneaker is back of late. If you need evidence, look no further than the Rukus x Nike SB Dunk Low “Crawfish.” Reminiscent of the glory days when the “Lobster” Dunks dropped, the Baton Rouge skate shop is paying homage to their signature sea critter of choice.
Taking on a red, yellow, and grey color scheme, the “Crawfish” features speckled suede paneling, grey leather on the toe box, a newspaper motif on the mid panel (signifying how the dish is typically served), along with yellow detailing on the sockliner, and the heel tab is embroidered to represent corn. The kicks also come in a uniquely branded box, rather than the typical SB box.
The Rukus x Nike SB Dunk Low “Crawfish” will be served up exclusively through Rukus on August 16.
