Official Pics: FTC x Nike SB Dunk Low is Inspired by Japanese Bathhouses
Joining the likes of the Bandai x Dunk High 'Gundam', the FTC x Nike SB Dunk Low collaboration has been officially revealed as part of a celebratory collection for the Tokyo Olympics. Hailing from San Francisco, skate stalwarts FTC look to Japanese bathhouses as the inspiration for this project, dressing the ever-popular SB silhouette in a summer-ready aesthetic accented by 'Speed Yellow' and 'Lagoon Blue' hues.
Following leaked on-foot imagery, we've had a wait a while for official shots, but they don't disappoint. Manufactured with blue suede uppers, this SB Dunk is rendered in white leather overlays that are given textural depth by grid-like patterns, which mimic the brick layering seen at Japanese baths. A metallic Swoosh is emblazoned on the side panel, the Swoosh extending out to meet the sunny borders on the sockliners and tongues. FTC branding appears on the heels and co-branded tongues, which have kanji on the rear. Down below, an icy blue outsole completes the collaboration.,
Having fostered a strong history with Nike SB, FTC are responsible for one of the best Dunk Lows we've seen: the FTC x Nike SB Dunk Low 'Finally' from 2013, which was created to mark the 20th anniversary of the legendary skate tape of the same name.
Look for the FTC x Nike SB Dunk Low to release soon. Confirmation can't be too far away now.
