Concepts x Nike SB Unveil a The New 'Purple Lobster' Dunk LowRelease: 14 December 2018
Ten years since their first-ever ‘Lobster’ Dunk Low collaboration, Nike SB and sneaker boutique Concepts are set to unleash another sought-after iteration of the classic silhouette. You’ve probably seen the leaks and sneak peeks, but now we’ve got the official pictorial of the purple ‘Lobster’ we’ve been waiting for.
Vibrant ‘Voltage Purple’ and ‘Court Purple’ panelling highlights the 2018 ‘Lobster’, while unique checkerboard lining adds a collaborative touch. There’s a white padded tongue, black midsole and matching purple rubber outsole, which all staying true to the OG SB Dunk construction.
‘In terms of classics, the Dunk is amongst the elites. The OG SB in particular, has a devout following, so we opted for the original tooling,’ explains Deon Point, Concepts’ owner. ‘We even forewent CONCEPTS branding on the padded tongue, staying true to our first collaboration. I think the details separate it from the rest. The metallic swoosh, metallic speckle, picnic lining, and rubber brands, have all become iconic over the years.’
The Concepts x Nike SB ‘Purple Lobster’ Dunk Low releases on December 14 exclusively at Concepts in-store (NYC and Cambridge) and online. A skate-shop release will follow on December 15, with a final SNKRS drop coming through on December 17.
