Nike Gets "Lost at Sea" With Retro-Inspired SB Dunk High
Crafted in collaboration with Atlas Skateboarding.
The Nike SB Dunk High is the up-and-coming silhouette this season as the sportswear giant brings back the OG silhouette with colorways like “Spartan Green” and “Michigan.” This time around, the brand has teamed up with Atlas Skateboarding for a vintage-inspired pair dubbed “Lost at Sea.”
The design stems from the 1990 Hansa Carrier cargo ship, which lost 21 containers after running into a storm in the Alaska Peninsula on its way from Korea to the United States. Six months after the accident, Nike shoes from five of the lost containers began showing up on Pacific Northwestern beaches.
Bringing the ocean onto our feet, “Lost at Sea” arrives with a cracked leather material on the upper in an off-white shade. A washed light blue color highlights the Swooshes, tongue and outsole, while an aged yellow hue is added for a retro look. The tongue is constructed with leather instead of mesh this time around, with Nike SB branding embroidered in white and red.
