PARRA'S NEW DUNK LOW PRO IS WORTHY OF A GOLD MEDAL
team kits for the inaugural skateboarding events, he has also whipped up a coinciding Dunk Low.
The Dunk Low Pro "Abstract Art," as the colorway is being called, was first teased months back. Since then, we've come across multiple sets of images, including on-foot pics courtesy of sneaker insider @yankeekicks. Now, with the 2020 Olympics just days away, Nike has shared official photos of the pair, along with a July 31 release date.
Parra's forthcoming Dunk Low features a bold print with wavy geometrics and swirling color, largely mimicking the scheme showcased in many of the recent works on his Instagram page. The design also coordinates with the aforementioned uniforms for Nike SB's Olympic skate team. The colorful pattern is showcased on the mudguard, eyestays, heel, heel tab, and tongue trim, surrounded by an off-white nubuck base. Swoosh branding is present on the side of the shoe and at the toe, while Parra's logo is applied to the heel.
Parra's 2021 Dunk Low will serve as a followup to his 2019 collab on the silhouette. He also previously worked on the Air Max 1 and Air Zoom Spiridon. Look for the new pair to arrive roughly one week after the opening ceremony for the Tokyo Olympics.

Official Images of the Nike SB Dunk High "Hawaii"
Nike (NYSE:NKE -1.11%) ‘s merry band of misfits at Nike SB have been known to spark up a yearly SB Dunk tribute to the 4/20 “holiday,” and this year’s style is a potent SB Dunk High “Hawaii.” Also known as the “Maui Wowie,” the Hawaii offers a high-color tribute to tropical vacations and favored pastimes alike with a tear-away upper and other special detailing.
Unlike the on-foot photos seen earlier in the month, Nike’s official product images of the “Hawaii” belie its true nature, showing only an upper covered fully in blue and peach floral print. Though this Hawaiian shirt-inspired veneer is certainly befitting of the shoe’s moniker, what’s not revealed is the bottom layer that the “Maui Wowie” nickname comes from. This layer offers both orange floral print and hairy green suede reminiscent of other 4/20 releases like the now-legendary SB Dunk High “Skunk.”
The only nod to this nickname in the official images appears on the insole, which features a custom print centered around a inebriated skull. Even Nike’s official product description dances around the hidden detail, saying the top layer “tears away over time, revealing surprises that further contribute to the shoe’s loud motif.” Elsewhere, hemp tongues and Swooshes work with orange tags, light-toned midsoles and cream laces to complete the look.
Expect the Nike SB Dunk High “Hawaii/Maui Wowie” to release via Nike SNKRS and SB stockists like The Berrics Canteen on April 23. The MSRP is set at $120 USD.
