We missed out on all the raffles, but luckily we secured a pair of the potential 2024 Sneaker of the Year from the safe and reliable platform, SNKRDUNK.

Before we our give our personal thoughts on these sneakers, let’s take a quick look at what makes this Nike SB Dunk special. This limited-release SB Dunk is a collaboration with the renowned graffiti artist Futura and his Futura Laboratories Studios. The official colorway is Bleached Aqua/Geode Teal White. The white mesh uppers are contrasted by printed graffiti panels based on Futura’s 1991 painting titled ‘colorforms.’

One cool feature is that the prints on the left and right pairs are different from each other. Additionally, only the medial side of the left pair has a unique random stitching. Hits of 3M are found on the tongue lace stay and the Nike logo on the heel. The sneakers come with unique teal and light purple two-tone laces, along with an extra pair of light purple laces. Contrasting teal stitching is found on the white cup sole with icy blue soles. Cushioning comes from the air zoom unit and crash pad in the insoles, which are adorned with the Nike SB Dunk Low and Futura signature branding. The same Futura signature is also found on the lateral sides of the heel, while the FL “Futura Laboratories” logo appears on the medial sides of the heel.

What do we think? The execution of this collaboration is well done. It pays homage to one of the greatest modern artists of our time and is unmistakably a Futura collab. Despite its awesome attributes, we don’t consider it the sneaker of the year yet. Maybe Dunks of the year. It will most likely end up in our Top 3 to 5 by the end of 2024.

They run snug due to thick tongue padding, so those with wide feet should go half a size up. Prices seem to be dropping, so if you’re interested, this is the best time to grab a pair at a reasonable price. You can use our SNKRDUNK affiliate link for an extra $20 AUD OFF your first order!
