Nike SB x Ishod Wair x Magnus Walker Dunk High
Partnering with Los Angeles’ auto enthusiast Magnus Walker and renowned team rider Ishod Wair, Nike SB introduce yet another petrol poised release into their growing Dunk rosta; this time in the form of the Nike SB x Ishod Wair x Magnus Walker Dunk High 911. Following on from the 24 Hours of Le Mans inspired ‘Pink Pig’ Dunk Low Pro Premium and the 917/20 coupé referencing ‘Gulf’ Dunk Low Pro from earlier this year, Porsche portrayals remain a focal point for the pioneering skatewear brand, with both Walker and Wair offering their own creative take on the iconic Porsche 911 design.
A like-for-like replete of Sheffield-born Magnus Walker’s 1971 Porsche 911 T 277 that he purchased in 1999 from the Pomona Swap Meet, this full throttled release is one that captures the fashion designer, style icon and automobile devotee’s passion for playful preservation. With the ignition of his passion fuelled by his time spent enjoying the offerings of the Earls Court Motor Show in London with his father, California resident Walker soon fell in love with the iconic 911, it’s tonal striped decals and its rugged yet streamlined appeal. Owner of one of the world’s most astonishing collections of Porsches, all housed within his own two-story 26,000 sqft warehouse in L.A. and known for his alt-scene Serious clothing brand, Walker remains a force to be reckoned with when it comes to addressing multifaceted talent. Boosted by Canadian filmmaker Tamir Moscovici’s ‘Urban Outlaw’ short film that premiered in 2012, down to earth Walker has remained a mainstay of race car culture ever since, with collaborations with MOMO Steering Wheels and collectible die-cast connoisseurs Hot Wheels honouring his self proclaimed outlawry persona and his love for vintage Porsche products.
Joining forces with fellow petrol head and West Coast skater Ishod Wair, the Nike SB Dunk High not only pays tribute to trackside heritage, but to the profile’s iconic courtside lineage that has since rocketed the silhouette’s stature amongst the ever adapting and evolving skate scene. Lining up nicely alongside other signature designs such as Wair’s pioneering Nike SB Bruin from 2019, the first Nike SB rider design for the brand’s #supportyourlocalskateshop Orange Label collection, and his Philadelphia 76ers inspired Dunk Low, the T 277 inspired Dunk High 911 finds itself running for joint first alongside the aforementioned Ford GT40 referencing ‘Gulf’ Dunk Low and its ‘Pink Pig’ sibling.
Dubbed designer-come-car-enthusiast Walker’s most identifiable and characteristic creation to date, the famous white, red, and blue '71 T acts as a transference from pedal feel to boardfeel to form an integral part of Nike SB’s ‘cars for your feet’ analogy. Paying tribute to the ‘flat foot’ motorcar’s rusted paintwork and sunkissed detail, this Nike SB Dunk High is styled with resilient stone washed canvas across the toe box, whilst supple cracked leather accents and brushed back suede combine to create a textured appeal that references the car’s garage-worked feel. A Zoom Air unit across the heel is loyal to the design’s OG courtside ties, whilst the red, white and blue rubber outsole features a classic cupsole stitch for exceptional durability. With the colourings styled with a subtle matte finish to honour the 911 T 277’s age-old finish, these conceptual high tops also feature perforated side walls and pastel blue Swooshes that are inspired by the P-Car’s classic nose and tail bumpers. Three sets of interchangeable laces are all detailed with the Urban Outlaw decal on the aglets, whilst the contrasting tartan fabric lining beneath the canvas ‘Nike SB x Ishod x Magnus’ tongue and around the deconstructed, foam edge collar is a complement to classic Porsche seat designs. Printed ‘Nike SB’ scuffed sole branding is rehashed in the traditional Porsche font as an ode to traditional undercarriage detailing, whilst red stamped ‘277’ branding across each exterior facing lateral panel references the car’s iconic door stamps and is mirrored by printed ‘Urban Outlaw’ logos across the lateral side panels and by custom ‘Nike SB x Walker x Wair’ insoles in tonal shades of white and blue. Signed off with embroidered Union Jack intricacies across the canvas heel brace and the tongue’s inner flag label as a subtle reference to Walker’s UK ties and his childhood spent exploring numerous London Motor Shows.
