Magnus Walker’s 1971 Porsche 911 T “277” Inspired this Nike SB Dunk High 

Magnus Walker‘s iconic Porsche collection is considered legendary among petrol heads, and now one of his most significant is serving as an inspiration to the new SB Dunk High from Nike‘s skate-focused Nike SB label. The car in spot is Walker’s 1971 Porsche 911 T “277,” a customized creation that’s convincingly his most famous piece of automotive work and is replicated in painstaking detail on this high-top SB Dunk.

From the single photo that is available, we know that the upper is constructed of aged sail leather quarters and mudguards plus smooth leather heels and “flaps” with vibrant red piping. There’s also two different textile tones used those being the sail on the collar and red on toebox. Swooshes, laces and tongue tags are designed in sky blue to imitate another color from Walker’s vehicle. To emphasize on the car’s branding , a familiar red “277” hit on the heel plus race-ready graphics on the lateral quarter and midsole is crafted. Rough-hewn collars, carefully-placed metal eyelets and a two-tone outsole finish the look.

This just being a first look at the Magnus Walker-inspired Nike SB Dunk High, no release details or pricing information has been announced. Considering that Nike SB has already released two Porsche-themed takes on the SB Dunk Low in 2021 — the “Gulf” and the “Pink Pig” —it’s not absurd to assume the release of this high-top style this summer or fall.
