Official Images of the Civilist x Nike SB Dunk Low
Thanks to the likes of Travis Scott and Ben & Jerry’s, the popularity of the Nike Dunk is booming as it was in the mid-00s, it now only seems right that the OG skate shops get their time to shine. And right on cue, Berlin’s Civilist steps into the spotlight with a jaw-dropping heat-n-reveal “Heatmap” Nike SB Dunk Low
No stranger to a Nike SB collaboration, the Berlin-based board shop is back with a vastly different approach to their ultra-premium effort on the High in 2013. Though, this does arrive in a similar palette of black and white, premium quilted leathers and other premium materials are swapped out for a simple black base, white midsole and black rubber outsole. The inclusion of a small branded tag just below the Swoosh is a testament to the pair’s simplicity. That is until you step out into the sunlight — and BANG — a heatmap print is then revealed.

The colorful, all-over graphic hides beneath the heat-away black upper for one awe-inspiring effect. But it’s nothing new; the finish has been done by customizers for the best part of three of four years, but this marks the first official release from Nike that inclusive the heat-wearing finish.
