Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Premium 'Pink Pig'
With its blushed-pink livery and its motorcar inspired muse, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Premium ‘Pink Pig’ arrives as the latest 2021 Nike Dunk to grace the now grail-like silhouette. Remaining loyal to its courtside heritage yet styled with a petrol-fuelled twist, these sow-like sneakers set about channelling the design’s OG ‘Truffle Hunter of Zuffenhausen’ ode to tarmac.
Although meat-minded in its atomic-pink aesthetic, the Nike SB Dunk Low Pro Premium ‘Pink Pig’ hails creative influence from automotive designer Anatole Lapine’s iconic Porsche 917/20 coupé colour that debuted at the ‘world's oldest active sports car race’, Le Mans 24 Hours in 1971. Decorated with cross-sectional butcher-style primal cut references and a noted pig-themed colouring, the porky ‘Pink Pig’ or ‘Big Bertha’ was the fastest car to qualify untested during the pre-race qualification. Mirrored by the extended-skirt Porsche 935/78, also known as ‘Moby Dick’, and remastered via the Porsche 911 RSR for the 2018 Le Mans stint, the legendary Sports Car manufacturer’s penchant for authentic animal-like aesthetics is something that still captures attention even to this day. For those familiar with its swine-spun namesake, these pretty-in-pink Nike Dunks host striking resemblance to the 2012 Nike SB x Concepts ‘When Pigs Fly’ Dunk Hi sneakers, styled with light-pink uppers and a flying pig lace lock and a silver Swoosh, whilst the Boston-based powerhouse’s more recent Nike SB Dunk High Pro 'Turdunken' Shoes from late 2020 continues to honour this healthy obsession with animal-like traits.
Loyal to its moniker and its rare colouring, the Nike SB Dunk Low ‘Pink Pig’ casts a transcendent aesthetic that doesn’t fall far from its Porsche 917/20 origin. Keeping to the race-car’s primal-cut undertone, reinforced overlays are crafted from the same velvety-pink sanded pig leather as its coarse-touch quarter-panels and uppers, whilst the two-tone crisp-white midsole and bold-black circular tread outsoles pay homage to the car’s seasoned tires and beaming headlights. Styled in a few shades darker than its ‘When Pigs Fly’ comparative, these low-top skate shoes feature Nike SB’s iconic toe-box perforations for improved circulatory comfort, whilst the tonal bartack stitchings across the mid-panel and 7-eyelet securities bring added depth to this meaty design. The classic swoop-back Swooshes fuse neatly across the ‘Nike’ embroidered ankle collars to complement the suede-like construction, whilst the puffy and interchangeable laces secure the Og padded Nike SB Dunk Low Pro branded tongue in place across the natural arch of the foot. Atomic-pink interior linings offer a cushioned and non-abrasive wear, whilst Nike’s legendary Zoom Air unit both stabilises and sustains this porker-affiliated release.
With a rumoured Nike SB Dunk Low Gulf, as inspired by the Porsche 917 Gulf Oil livery from 1970, set to drop later this year, the ever-expanding inventory for the Nike SB Dunk is one that never fails to disappoint. Having already welcomed the cuisine-concentrated Nike SB Dunk Low Pro ‘Street Hawker’ and the noble colour blocked Nike SB Dunk ‘Court Purple’ in just January of 2021 alone, the rest of the year already looks as promising as the silhouettes own long-reigning 36 year, cross-cultural legacy.
