Nike SB, while popular to the masses for its releases with Travis Scott and Ben & Jerry’s, owes credit to the plethora of skate shops and retailers whose collaborations helped establish a star-studded archive. And though not too long since their Dunk High, Berlin’s Civilist is the next up to be re-celebrated — the imprint and its friends providing a small glimpse of what looks to be an understated Dunk Low. A striking departure from the leaks revealed months ago, the tease gives way to the design’s simple approach. With everything hued achromatic — the Swoosh, leather paneling, and the like — there’s little to see save for the “CIVLIST” branded patch along the side as well as the lightly threaded “Nike” embroidery at the heel. For now take a quick peek at what’s upcoming here and sit tight for more images and official release info.
