Renowned NYC street artist Futura has a new collaboration with Nike SB dropping this year.
Futura and the Swoosh have a long legacy of iconic collabs together, dating back to 2003 with the release of the first Futura x Nike SB Dunk Low. Other notable projects between the two include the ultra-rare 2004 FLOM SB Dunk High and the Off-White x Futura x Nike Dunk Low, which was first revealed by Virgil Abloh in 2019 and only made available to the public in 2023 via a Sotheby’s eight-pair auction. Thankfully this next collaboration will have a bit of a wider release, emphasis on the “a bit.”
The 2024 Futura x Nike SB Dunk Low was stealthily revealed as part of Futura’s Breaking Out art exhibition at UB Art Galleries in Buffalo, NY. It actually took a few days from when the shoes were first put on display for photos of them to start circulating online.
The shoe features a white mesh base with the artist’s abstract work printed on the canvas overlays. This is paired with a dark teal Swoosh on the side panels and reflective 3m silver heel panels. Other notable features on the upper are Futura’s signature on the lateral heel, “FL” (Futura Laboratories) branding on the medial heel, co-branding on the tongue tags in Futura’s signature font, and two-toned laces that switch colors mid-length. Underfoot is a white midsole with blue stitching and an icy blue translucent outsole with Futura’s signature in the center underneath the standard Nike branding.
The Futura x Nike SB Dunk Low is expected to drop sometime this summer. These are rumored to be more limited than other Nike SB Dunk Low collabs, so don’t expect them to be an easy cop. Grab an early look below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
