Nike celebrated the role durable materials have played in their innovative heritage with the Nike Dunk Low SP City Market. References to Nike’s Blue Ribbon Studio, a collaborative design studio where employees can get creative with new materials and express themselves through experimentation, are prevalent throughout the design.
The Nike Dunk Low SP City Market is composed of a variety of up-cycled materials. Each panel is constructed of a different canvas material, similar to the variety of bags one would see when passing by local vendors at a street market. The tongue contains a small, zippered compartment that is big enough to store a folded, reusable shopping bag – or anything worth keeping in a small bag. Following the market theme, the tongue label resembles the nutrition labels found on food packaging. Other details include a “Thank You For Caring” print on the insole, rope laces, and a white and beige sole.
The Nike Dunk Low SP City Market released in March of 2021 and retailed for $110.
