Detailed Looks at the FORTY PERCENT AGAINST RIGHTS x Nike SB Dunk High
Founded by Japanese streetwear legend Tetsu Nishiyama in 1993 — his first fuly-fledged venture — FORTY PERCENT AGAINST RIGHTS has unveiled a collaborative creation with Nike SB on the iconic Dunk High. FPAR’s fundamental principle is based on the idea that any original artwork changed at least 40% no longer has its rights — and that belief is brought into the spotlight in a literal fashion on this upcoming FPAR x Nike SB Dunk High.
The original artwork that is a Triple-black Dunk has been modified — by approximately 40% it seems — featuring a retooling of the tongue and Swoosh that pay homage to the neighboring Jordan Brand. The tongue is ripped straight from the Air Jordan 6, with Nike SB taking place of the original Jumpman on the mini shroud overlay and substituting the protruding “AIR JORDAN” text with “NIKESB” above the tongue’s windows The Swoosh arrives in like-netting to the Air Jordan 5, completing the callouts to the Jumpman brand. Other tweaks include FPAR/Swoosh logos on the heels, “Don’t Follow Me” and “Trust No One” inscribed on the rear of the Swoosh and tongue liner respectively, and a FPAR-banded heel pull. This collab will also be housed in a custom shoebox built with transparent materials.
