The Concepts x Nike SB Dunk High 'TurDUNKen' is DeliciousRelease: 14 November 2020
Previously linking up with the Swoosh for legendary designs like the Dunk 'Lobster' and the recent Kyrie 6 ‘Khepri’, Concepts are now remixing undoubtedly the most hyped silhouette in 2020: The Nike SB Dunk.
Taking aesthetic cues from the Mallard duck, the ‘TurDUNKen’ honours the trifecta between food, football and friendship. Conceptually animated by the Nike Dri-FIT chicken foot sock stuffed inside a duck-inspired Dunk, the collaborative sneaker even comes in turkey wrapping paper. Boxed in a wild oven-inspired packaging, the design features all your favourite holiday leftovers (including a family-dinner-themed turkey leg Nerf vortex football).
‘We've definitely never taken ourselves too seriously. We’re well-versed in sport. We come from luxury,’ says Concepts Creative Director, Deon Point. ‘The thing with us that always gets overlooked is our sense of humour. We love to have fun.’
Originally made famous by NFL commentator John Madden, Turducken is made from a de-boned chicken stuffed into a de-boned duck, which is then stuffed into a de-boned turkey.
Has the ‘TurDUNKen’ whet your appetite?
