UPDATE: Thought to be destined to never leave the land of gold, SB fans rejoice, as today we can announce that the Nike SB Dunk Low 'Beijing' will be making its way worldwide. Commencing September 13, look to secure yourself a pair from Nike.com and select Nike SB stockists.
Chinese Swoosh lovers dig on the Dunk, it's a known fact – and this ain't the first time the market has scored its own special release. This 'Beijing' Dunk Low doesn't appear to be celebrating any particular holiday or milestone, just the great city of Peking and its renowned 'hutong' alleyways. Textured leather and suede is cleverly employed here to simulate the concrete of the hutongs while red and gold Swooshes and accents bring back that Chinese flag flavour we're all so familiar with. Holler at your Nike SB stockist now to see if you can nab these, but only if you live in China unfortunately. Photos via Hypebeast.
