COVID-19, though innately bad, has brought out the good in many of us around the world. Essential workers from service to healthcare are being treated with an overwhelming and deserved sense of respect, with the latter profession even rewarded for their bravery. Among heavy discounts at major chains and words of encouragement on the street, some local heroes like UNheardof are joining the fight as they’ve teamed up with renowned customizer Mr. Sabotage and restaurant Plesantry to provide those in the field with free meals.
To fund this, the triumvirate have taken to asking sneaker culture for donations. But instead of simple charity, the campaign proffers a bespoke Nike SB Dunk Low as incentive, one that fittingly uses the skate shop’s own collaboration from around five years ago. Lensed through the SBTG stamp of quality, the pair’s constructions take a new lease on life with luxury: the reds and greys a sturdy suede, the lace tips a striking metallic, and the swoosh a likely time-intensive embroidery. The heel, then, tweaks its inspiration’s 1990 world series themes as it displays the American Flag upside-down to signal distress.
