One of the most talented skaters in the world, Japan’s Yuto Horigome claimed gold in the inaugural Olympic men’s street event at the 2020 Summer Olympics. First getting on the deck at age six in Tokyo, Yuto made waves in 2018 by becoming the first skateboarder from Japan to win a gold medal at the X Games.
In 2023, Yuto looks to be teaming up with Nike for his first ever SB Dunk Low. While the inspiration behind the colourway is yet to be revealed, the model features a neutral palette with grey suede overlays. Complemented by smooth leather and mesh, the collaboration is given some depth with brown accenting the collars and outsoles. The colab is also replete with unique motifs, including embroidery on the lateral ankles, and special graphic insoles.
The release will also come housed in special packaging and feature an extra pair of laces.
No official release details have yet surfaced, but make sure to keep it locked to Sneaker Freaker for updates.
