Nike SB Dunk ‘Día de Muertos’ Releases October 21st

clock-circular-outline Posted October 12, 2023

This month, Nike is about to drop a footwear gem that perfectly bridges culture and fashion - the Nike Dunk Low ‘Día de Muertos’.

Nike Dunk Low ‘Día de Muertos’

This exclusive sneaker serves as a beautiful tribute to the Mexican holiday, ‘Día de los Muertos’, offering a design that authentically captures the essence of the beloved tradition.

Rather than opting for the more common sugar skull motifs, Nike's design channels the spirit of this occasion through the vibrant symbolism of marigolds and hummingbirds. Both marigolds and hummingbirds hold a profound significance in the mythology of the ‘Day of the Dead’.

In Aztec beliefs, these creatures served as guides for the spirits of the departed, leading them to the sacred altars called ofrendas, which were dedicated to their memory.

Nike Dunk Low ‘Día de Muertos’

The Dunk Low boasts an array of intricate details, including the two-tone hummingbird elegantly embroidered on the lateral side and textured patterns reminiscent of feathers adorning the golden toe cap, eyestay, and heel overlay.

The colour palette skillfully blends lighter marigold shades with contrasting elements in black and metallic marigold accents. Vibrant pink branding on the tongue tag and heel counter adds an exuberant burst of colour, mirroring the liveliness of the holiday itself.

Prepare to immerse yourself in the spirit of Día de los Muertos with the Nike Dunk Low ‘Día de Muertos’. It’s a sneaker that seamlessly fuses tradition and fashion, and it’s arriving on October 21 exclusively through the SNKRS app. With every step, embrace and celebrate the rich tapestry of Mexican culture.
