Soulland x Nike
With Nike Dunk celebrating its 15th anniversary, Soulland completes a year of special releases with the last dunks of 2017. The Danes take on the shoe model is a bit unconventional, deconstructed versions with playful approaches to fabric and details. After last year's collab, FRI.day part 0.2 is close to the heart of every skateboarder in Nordic countries where low temperatures, rugged weather and absence of light makes it impossible to skate outside several months a year. In addition to Soulland’s own version of the Dunk Low Pro and Dunk High Pro, the capsule also features a version of the destroyer jacket as well as 7 pieces of apparel. Apparel starts at €40, footwear at €120.
Launched at colette last Friday, now available at Soulland stores and soulland.euSoulland
