Nike SB Recruits Parra, Gundam, FTC and Quartersnacks for Dunk Collaborations

Following on from its announcement of Parra-designed uniforms for skateboarding teams at the Tokyo Olympics, Nike SB has now confirmed a series of new collaborations. Focused around two iterations of the SB Dunk silhouette, the label has once again worked with Dutch artist Piet Parra, as well as Gundam, FTC and Quartersnacks.

The Parra x Nike SB Dunk Low was first seen earlier this year, and is designed to coordinate with the federation uniforms worn by the USA, Japan, Brazil and France. The sneaker features an eye-catching geometric pattern across its upper, which is complemented by hits of clean white and a black Swoosh on the sidewall.

The second SB Dunk collaboration sees Nike partner with Gundam on the Dunk High. The two colorways — “White/Amarillo” and “Thunder Blue/Metallic Gold — first emerged last month and are inspired by the Unicorn Gundam and feature interchangeable Swoosh decals as a nod to customizable toy models and stickers on a skateboard.

Additionally, Nike SB has also teamed up with FTC for a dunk inspired by the tradition of Japan’s public bathhouses, with crystal blue suede and white leather sitting alongside a clear sole and bright enamel detailing. Quartersnacks, meanwhile, has looked to junk food for its collaboration, which is inspired by a fluffy cake covered with icing, and finished with a zebra stripe pattern.

Take a look through the collaborations in the gallery above, and expect Nike SB’s work with Parra, Gundam, FTC and Quartersnacks to release in the near future.
