Just months after the Nike SB Dunk Lows set, inspired by vintage race cars, another car-themed SB Dunk is expected to arrive soon.
For this pair, the model switches to the Nike DB Sunk High and looks to renowned British car collector Magnus Walker for what counts as an official collaboration. The sneaker uses an off-white color with a mix of materials and an emphasis on bright red and blue – colors that seem to be inspired by Walker’s 1971 Porsche 911 T 277.
The car has become something of a symbol in the automotive community, and Walker has steadfastly admired the feel of a car’s “run-in” after years of owning it. From the teaser image of the sneaker, it looks like Nike SB tried to mimic the wear and tear of the car paint with a variety of material textures, including cracked leather on the toe.
The exact release date for the Magnus Walker and Nike SB Dunk High “Porsche 277” has not been announced at this time, but should be lowered soon.
