The Nike Dunk Low ‘Sun Club’ Breaches the Water

Nike have been surprisingly open to manipulating the Swoosh in recent years. No doubt emboldened by Travis Scott’s industry-defining Air Jordan 1 in 2019 (which of course featured the flipped Swoosh), Nike have also completely retooled the iconic logo with Swedish skate savant Oskar Rozenberg, who added a Shark to the uppers of the SB Dunk High.

It’s a business decision that looks to have extended to Nike’s in-house design team, the latest Nike Dunk Low ‘Sun Club’ again taking aesthetic cues from the apex predator. Belonging to a broader series including a Blazer Low, the latest in the collection is composed in a colour palette reminiscent of sandy beaches.

Utilising a shark fin for the Swoosh of the tip (complete with water droplets), the model also features a man lying on a hammock on the inside of the tongue tags. Manufactured with hemp-like underlays, the textured synthetic overlays reflect the aesthetic of the grainy rubber outsoles (made from Grind Rubber). Finally, Nike’s pinwheel logo on the insoles announces the eco-conscious properties of the design.

Unfortunately, we don’t have official release details, but make sure to keep it locked to Sneaker Freaker for updates.
