It’s quite an ordinary thing for Nike SB to pay tribute to Hawaii. The home of surfing, which ultimately gave birth to skateboarding, has seen a handful of inspired colorways over the years, most notably on 2004’s “Aloha” collaboration with Kicks Hawaii. As for 2021, we see a more literal approach, with this Nike SB Dunk High “Hawaii” donning floral duds and natural fibers.
First looks at the pair shows printed textile construction reminiscent of 1960s Hawaii shirts in hues of green, sandy yellow, and peach. The patterns are engulfed in the entirety of the upper, enabling the hemp-like textile Checks and tongues to pop. Also, the fabrication is eerily similar to the aforementioned Aloha Dunk Low — perhaps a cheeky nod to the preceding collaboration. Meanwhile, liners, laces, and outsoles also arrive in a washed sand hue, as its midsoles revert to a classic white finish. A bright orange tongue tag, complete the design, perhaps indicating an Orange Label status.
The latest images of the Nike SB Dunk High “Hawaii” provided by @yankeekicks show a tear-away upper with underlays of vibrant orange floral print, and weed-inspired ganja suede overlays — the latter hinting at a possible 4/20 release.
