The Nike SB Dunk High Momofuku is a collab that came about when Nike SB and New York-based chef David Chang put their ideas together to create a special version of the SB Dunk High inspired by Momofuku’s aprons. Releasing next week, let’s get a closer look.

For those of you who may not know, Momofuku is a culinary brand established by chef David Chang in 2004 with the opening of Momofuku Noodle Bar. The Momofuku aprons are usually made out of dark denim fabric, which is very similar to the material used on the uppers of the SB Dunks you see above. This collab came about as a result of the long-standing relationship between members of the skate community, the Nike SB team and the Momofuku restaurants. Chang fell in love with Nike in 1987. According to the chef, the moment he saw the first visible Air: “Was one of the coolest things I’d ever seen.” Ever since then, he’s been loyal to the Swoosh and was more than ecstatic to collaborate with Nike SB on this project.

Notable features on the shoe include the numbers “163” and “207” on the sock liners which represent the addresses of David’s Fuku and Ssäm Bar restaurants in NYC, respectively. The Momofuku logo (peach) appears on the shoe’s heel to help give the shoe even more of a intimate collaborative feel. Dual branding on the tongue, Tonal Black and Navy denim uppers. tonal laces, a White midsole and gum outsole complete the look.

The Nike SB Dunk High Momofuku will be releasing on June 22nd at Fuku (163 First Avenue, New York, NY 10003) starting at 10AM, and on June 23rd at select Nike retailers and Nike.com. Retail price is set at $110.
