Nike SB x Di'orr Greenwood Collection

Nike SB x Di'orr Greenwood Collection

The highly anticipated Nike SB x Di'orr Greenwood collection is arriving at Drift House on Saturday, June 1st. This collaboration features two standout pieces: the Dunk High and the Blazer Mid along with apparel to compliment the kicks. Each shoe is a testament to Di'orr Greenwood's deep connection to her Navajo heritage and passion for skateboarding.

Nike SB Dunk High Decon

The Nike SB Dunk High "Navajo Arts" is a visual and cultural masterpiece. Greenwood's design pays homage to her Diné (Navajo) roots through a rich tapestry of traditional motifs and patterns. The shoe's upper features a blend of rugged orange and deep blue, reminiscent of the Southwestern desert landscape. The intricate embroidery and beading on the heel and tongue are inspired by Navajo textile art, showcasing Greenwood's dedication to preserving and celebrating her culture through modern design. The four colors of the Dunk High represent the four mountains that surround the Dinétah, or Navajo homeland, and stones that are associated with them.

Key Details:

  • Colorway: Turquoise Blue/Black-Rugged Orange
  • Materials: Premium suede and leather with embroidered and beaded accents
  • Special Features: Custom insoles featuring traditional Navajo patterns, highlighting the fusion of heritage and contemporary skate culture
  • MSRP: $145

The Dunk High "Navajo Arts" not only stands out for its visual appeal but also for its craftsmanship. Each pair is meticulously crafted to ensure durability and comfort, enhancing each skate session.

Nike SB Blazer Mid

The Blazer Mid in this collection is another tribute to Greenwood's Navajo heritage. This design takes a more subtle approach, with muted gray monotones and minimalist detailing that reflect the natural beauty of the Navajo reservation. The shoe features leather uppers, providing a textured feel that contrasts beautifully with the smooth leather Swoosh. The outsole is detailed with Navajo patterning similar to the enclosing of the lace pattern. The grayscale color design is inspired by "The Long Walk of the Diné", when the Navajo people were marched away from their land by the United States military.

The Blazer Mid design draws from the Moccasins Di’Orr skates regularly. The shoe also features a unique leather lace cover with stitched details and flower emblem.

Key Details:

  • Colorway: Anthracite/Dark Smoke Grey
  • Materials: Suede/leather uppers
  • Special Features: Subtle Navajo-inspired patterns on the heel tab and tongue, emphasizing the shoe's cultural significance

MSRP: $110
