Nike SB x Parra Dunk Low Pro
A quickstrike release that arrives as part of Nike SB’s latest apparel and footwear collection and acts as a creative follow on from not only 2019’s capsule collaboration but from the Dutch designer’s ties to the Federation team kits, the ‘Abstract Art’ Nike SB x Parra Dunk Low Pro is a colourful sneaker that is designed to coordinate with the aforementioned USA, Japan, Brazil and France kits to embody the ideals of an active imagination and all things unapologetically expressive.

Joined by the recently released Nike SB x FTC Dunk Low Pro and two other upcoming Dunk releases that pay homage to skateboarding’s big competition appointment, prolific visionary mastermind Pieter ‘Parra’ Janssen joins forces with Nike SB once more to fuse artistic expression with the skatewear subdivision’s unruly appreciation for performative innovation. Designed to coordinate with, and inspired by, the federation kits for the USA, Japan, Brazil and France that former professional skater Piet Parra designed and released earlier this month, the Nike SB x Parra Dunk Low Pro is an expressive reflection of the same wavy geometric patterns commonly found not only on the kits but across the post-pop artist’s inimitable aesthetic.
Not the first time that by Parra front man and Tired Skateboard’s co-founder has paired with Nike SB, Parra turns his attention to 2019’s capsule collection for further inspiration. With his original Nike SB x Parra Dunk Low Pro met universally with a huge level of excitement thanks to its unruly sense of creative character, there’s no real surprise as to why the collection was also paired with a similarly styled Nike SB x Parra Blazer Low that kept the release’s Amsterdam-based imprint alive, with a selection of coordinating apparel designed to follow suit. Combining Parra’s signature red, white and blue colour palette with intricate embroideries and odes to previous designs such as Parra’s Nike Air Max 1 and Zoom Spiridon offshoots from 2018, by Parra’s aesthetic finds itself well placed within Nike SB’s growing ode to demonstrative design.
Styled with off white nubuck underlays and fabric overlays that pay tribute to the artist’s fragmented illustrative style in the brand’s iconic pastel colourways, the Nike SB x Parra Dunk Low Pro remains loyal to the OG courtside silhouette’s hardwood legacy as it retains its classic circular underfoot tread and its chunky sense of appeal. A crisp white cupsole is complemented by a traditional gum rubber outsole, whilst Nike’s impact absorbent Zoom Air unit provides heightened stability and supportive structure to suit any given terrain or setting. A bold black leather Swoosh is embroidered across both the interior and exterior facing quarters for a striking layer of additional texture, whilst the puffy white laces secure the cushioned tongue in place across the arch of the foot for additional comfort. Perforations across the toe box are in keeping with tradition to supply increased circulatory function, whilst the pattern matched trims across the ‘Nike SB Dunk Low Pro’ tongue tab and seams are mirrored by custom ‘Nike SB x Parra’ insoles that act as a continuation of the fire pink, gym red, royal blue, mocha and white wavy-style fabric design. Across the rear, split profile ‘Nike’ and ‘Parra’ embroidered branding seals both the left and right foot with an alternate ending, whilst the reinforced nubuck brace locks in the design’s performance orientated underpinning.
