There are few silhouettes in the sneaker landscape right now that can compare to the Dunk when it comes to the pure volume of releases and collaborations, and it goes without question that Nike (NYSE:NKE +1.05%) intends on riding this wave for as long as it can. In the coming months, you can anticipate the brand to unleash a consistent stream of new releases, one being this Nike Dunk High “Desert Camo” colorway that has just surfaced via official imagery.

Its nickname essentially gives it away that the Swoosh opted to go with a militant motif for this latest lifestyle iteration. To adhere to the aesthetic and feel of military garb, the brand fittingly swaps out the traditional smooth leather panels up top and invites in canvas to form the base’s build. Underlays, overlays and tongues are styled with Fall-friendly “Desert Camo” graphics while the laces and Swooshes contrast with solid shades of beige. Underneath, the shoes come crafted with clean white midsole units and milky treading. Solid black Nike branding tops everything off on the tongues and insoles.

Be on the lookout for Nike to release these in the coming weeks.



New York-based artist and designer Nik Bentel has unveiled his latest project, the limited-edition Shipping Box Bag. The forthcoming release follows Bentel’s hit Pasta Bag, which resembles a Barilla pasta box and sold out in less than a minute. Last month, the artist debuted a sequel bag, a take on the packaging from rival pasta company De Cecco.

Fashioned out of vegan leather, the Shipping Box Bag features a four-fold magnetic opening, just like that of a standard cardboard box. A white strap fastened to the bag reads “Fragile: Handle with Care.”

After the Pasta Bag, Bentel says he was inundated with requests to design another bag. Known for his satirical iterations of everyday objects, he attributed the idea to create the Shipping Box Bag to cardboard box deliveries.

“I came up with the idea after recycling a whole bunch of cardboard boxes that had been delivered to my studio,” Bentel told Hypebeast. “Even though they were essentially trash, I wanted to elevate the humble cardboard box into something usable again. My goal as a designer has always been to create something exciting from the mundane.”

The bag is available in two different iterations. One is already printed with UV shipping label stickers, while the other is a plain box that comes with a pack of vinyl stickers so that the buyer can customize their own bag.

Nik Bentel’s Shipping Box Bag launches on July 21 at 10 a.m. ET on the artist’s official website. The exclusive release will include only 100 bags, priced at $199 USD apiece.



James Whitner and his team over at the The Whitaker Group make it a strong point to give every one of their sneaker collaborations their undivided attention to ensure that every component of the rollout from the campaign imagery to the short films to the storytelling is on point. And next up on their agenda is the Social Status x Nike  Air Max Penny 1 “Recess” collection — a two-piece sneaker pack that shines a light on the significance of the lessons that the youth can learn both in the classroom and on the playground.

There are design details galore on the “Black” and “Desert Sand” colorways included in this assemblage — which is in fact the first collaboration ever executed with Penny Hardaway’s signature model. The former iteration is an overt nod to the OG “Orlando” colorway while the latter is a neutral-focused offering that keeps a grayscale motif. Both pairs feature velcro-backed Swooshes to allow you to interchange the extra sports-inspired Swoosh logos that come packed with the kicks. Additionally, the insoles and shoe boxes are ornamented with chalkboard-inspired branding as well as the sentence “A quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” — one of the English language’s most notable pangrams.

Check out an exclusive look at the pack here above and note that Social Status is officially dropping them on July 15 at 11AM EDT for $190 USD each.

 J Balvin. This marks the Prince Of Reggaeton’s second official team-up with Jordan Brand, and much like his first one, he goes all out with adventurous details. The most significant feature of the sneakers is its cloudy patterns which make their way onto the heel overlays as well as the interior linings. Signature logos of the Colombian crooner make their way onto the lower heels as well as the inside of the tongues, and the insoles are printed with “Air Jordan” spell-outs that are written out in Balvin’s font. Furthermore, the uppers have multi-colored exposed stitchings that divvy up the padded panels and the bottoms are upgraded with glow-in-the-dark abilities.

So far there haven't been any details about the release of the sneakers but I can't wait to try to get my hands on them.
