Independent sneaker chain Social Status is adding to the recent slew of Nike Dunk collaborations with its own collab coming soon.
Newly leaked images from @US_11 on Twitter reveal that there are two Social Status x Nike Dunk styles in the works. While the inspiration behind the set is currently unconfirmed, the store’s owner James Whitner added to the speculation by saying on Instagram that free lunch is the central theme for the project. Various materials are used on the shoe’s uppers including velvet, suede, and leather.
It’s worth noting that the images show the pre-school version of the shoes as the men’s pairs have yet to surface.
There are currently no release details available for this food-inspired Social Status x Nike Dunk collab but keep it locked to Sole Collector for new developments as they become available.
