NIKE DUNK – LIBERTY
July 17, 2013
Here’s a pair for the girlygirls! In this day and age of new shit coming at you every two seconds, the Liberty Dunk has some serious history behind it. Set in a famous Tudor building in the heart of London’s West End, Liberty is an old-school department store that prides itself on scouring the globe for goods that excite their clientele. During a field-trip to the historic store, Nike designers took inspiration from the store’s signature all-over prints and decided to use them on a series of Dunks, delivering this quilt-ish floral model as well as the upscale cherry bombers. Available now in good Nike stockists.
About the Nike Dunk
In 1985, culture and sport crossed genres with an intensity never before witnessed and a new age of self-expression was born. Representing this movement was the Nike Dunk. It turned teams into tribes, individuals into movements, and the definition of a basketball shoe on its head. 22 years later, what was born on the hardwoods now lives among a global neighbourhood. The Dunk is a basketball shoe, a skate shoe, a vintage shoe, a piece of history, and a work of art. But above all the Dunk is a reminder of what happens when you’re true.
Since 1875, Liberty in London has been synonymous with luxury and great design. Arthur Liberty’s intuitive vision and pioneering spirit led him to travel the world looking for individual pieces to inspire and excite his discerning clientele.
