Chicago-based retail shop Notre is set to release their collab with Nike on Saturday, January 23rd as the two teamed up to create a fresh new dunk for sneaker fans that looks like an absolute banger.
The Nike x Notre Dunk gets its inspiration from co-founder Michael Jaworowski, paying homage to his days working at a skate shop in Michigan and culminating to style in the Windy City. The midnight navy and sky grey colorway is based on work shirt-inspired patches dedicated to the blue collar lifestyle of Chicago and the Midwest, featuring high-quality suede and triple-stitch detailing. With the shaggy suede creating a natural finish, color variances gives each pair a unique color. To round out the design, is “Notre” on the tongue right below the Nike branding on the left shoe.
Per the Nike press release:
To make it happen, Jaworowski, Villanueva, co-owners Charlie and AJ Nordstrom and the rest of the Notre team have applied an ingrained diligence to a decidedly high-fashion, high-design platform. It is true to their unique ethos, a celebration of collaboration, curiosity, durability and work ethic. The store, for all involved, is a shared labor of love held by a belief that there are many valuable ways of doing things beyond one’s own.
