Paying tribute to the intersection of culture, self-expression and ungoverned creativity, the Nike SB Polaroid Dunk is a performative and undoubtedly unique skate shoe. Having collaborated with brands such as Puma and outdoor enthusiasts Teva, Polaroid has remained a mainstay of contemporary culture since their original establishment in 1937 by Edwin H. Land. Relaunched in 2017 as part of the Impossible Project, Polaroid’s illustrious legacy is one firmly centred at the core of both modern and nostalgic photography and film culture thanks to their visionary mindset and their appreciation for evolutionary camera design. Arriving as their first ever collaboration, this camera themed Dunk Low Pro draws similarity to recent releases including the Sony DCR-VX1000 ‘Digital Handycam’ inspired VX1000 Dunk Low Pro from the brand’s Orange Label collection and 2015’s ‘Wolf Grey’ Nike SB x Atlas Dunk Low Premium from a titled ‘35mm’ pack inspired by skate photographers Mark White and Joe Brooks’ personal collection of monochrome snapshots.
Styled with black nubuck uppers with contrasting white lateral quarters, detailed with embossed Polaroid frames and a subtle ode to over-exposed lighting, the Nike SB x Polaroid Dunk Low Pro is a colourful silhouette influenced by the narrative of one of the most iconic photography and film brand’s to date. A bright white and full length cupsole stitch is complemented by a rubber outsole with a classic circular tread, whilst a bright red underfoot pivot circle pays reference to the shutter button on cameras such as the Polaroid Now and Polaroid Go. Perforations across the forefoot lead to an embroidered multicoloured spectrum at the base of the recessed six eyelet lacing system, whilst interchangeable puffy laces secure the padded ‘Nike SB Dunk Low Pro’ tongue in place. Nike’s usual sidewall Swooshes are replaced with triple stacked blue, yellow and red semi-transparent variants inspired by Polaroid’s iconic logo, whilst further Polaroid branding appears across each lace aglet and the mix match, rainbow stripe ‘Nike SB x Polaroid’ insoles. Finished with black collar linings and with ‘Nike’ and ‘Polaroid’ embroidered branding sewn across each ankle.
Exploring what skateboarding means to them, female photographer and Nike SB skater Sarah Muerle is joined by fellow teammate Brian Anderson in both an accompanying edit and a supporting ‘Polaroid Workshop’ film. Celebrating the unique symbiosis between photography and skateboarding by capturing the world through a different lens to the norm, both skaters address how their identities play a role in evolving skate culture and how the art of both photography and skate is continually broadening perspectives.
