We recently wrote about the above Dunk Mid SB which we was being nicknamed the China Transit Dunk, but now we have found more details. This is actually a collaboration between Triumvir, an Orange County based lifestyle company, flystreetwear, a Beijing and Shanghai based skate shop, and Nike SB. Coming freshly off of the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing, many around the world have taken notice to the Chinese culture. This shoe pays tribute to some aspects of this very intriguing and unique country. For those knowledgeable of this area, one can immediately see the Beijing high-rise/ highway gray-toned heel, red and gold accents to represent fortune, prosperity and Chinese flag, and even the white dust mask worn by many inhabitants on the toe and laces of the shoe. The slogan “skate towards Tienanmen square” is embedded in the sockliner, while the sole fuses Fly’s Chinese coin logo and Triumvir’s “3″ logo. Definitely a special shoe for a special culture. Further detailed explanations can be read over on Triumvir.
