Independent sneaker chain Social Status joins the recent series of Nike Dunk collaborations with its own upcoming collaboration.
Recently leaked footage of @ US_11 on Twitter reveal that there are two Social Status x Nike Dunk styles in the works. While the inspiration behind the set is currently unconfirmed, store owner James Whitner added to the speculation by saying on Instagram that free lunch is the central theme of the project. Various materials are used on the uppers of the shoe including velor, suede and leather.
It should be noted that the pictures show the preschool version of the shoes, as men’s pairs have yet to surface.
There are currently no release details available for this food-inspired Social Status x Nike Dunk collaboration, but keep it locked to Sole Collector for new developments as they become available.
