Insane Dunk Mash-Up By The Basement And Nike
Nike have collaborated with London-based collective The Basement to reinterpret the Dunk – by youths, for youths.
Designed by 18-year-old member Daniel Pacitti, the end result is a simple colourway with a complex construction. An insane mash-up of nine materials, the sneaker reflects the diversity within the group of young creatives. 'When designing the shoe, we made each panel a different material to represent the diversity within our community. When they come together, they form something more beautiful and more powerful,' Pacitti states.
The full breakdown is as follows:
- 14OZ canvas
- Mesh lining
- Double twill canvas
- Heavyweight denim
- Flat leather
- Tumbled leather
- 3M reflective
