Nike SB Dunk High "Strawberry Cough"
Designed in collaboration with artist Todd Bratrud, this Nike SB Dunk High "Strawberry Cough" is inspired by the look of a strawberry featuring a predominantly red leather upper that's paired with a green hairy suede heel counter. Adding to the look is a strawberry cough logo on the heel along with a translucent tooling.
Aluminum' Nike Dunk High Drops Next Week
Nike Dunk releases don’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon as the brand has another collegiate-styled colorway coming soon.
The next pair to hit shelves is the women’s exclusive “Aluminum” Dunk High makeup dropping next week. The shoe wears the traditional two-tone color blocking with white leather serving as the base of the upper while light blue hues dress the overlay panels, including on the Swooshes. The “Nike Air” tongue tag and sock liner also appear in blue before a simple white midsole and sold-colored outsole complete the look below.
Priced at $110, the “Aluminum” Nike Dunk High will be released in women’s sizing on Sept. 30 via SNKRS and at select Nike Sportswear retailers.

Nike SB's Dunk Low Gets Readied With Red, Blue and Yellow Color-Blocking
Nike (NYSE:NKE +0.11%) and its Nike SB division are set to deliver a smorgasbord of footwear iterations throughout the Spring and Summer seasons, some of which are collaborative with imprints such as Stingwater and Parra while others fall under the GR category. In relation to the latter, the next to surface is a brand new SB Dunk Low with red, blue and yellow color-blocking.
It’s not confirmed yet if this particular pair has any association with soccer teams, but judging by the looks of the way its hues are blended together, it elicits memories of FC Barcelona‘s home kits. Save for the mesh tongues and laces, the entire base layer is formulated with buttery suede paneling. They also mismatch between each foot, the left side of which pronounces burgundy on the toe boxes and tongues while the right side flips these in reverse. The common element between the two sides is the yellow hits that tap onto the Swooshes and Nike branding atop the tongues and heels. Down below, the midsoles are absent of any coloring, and comes placed above a gum-colored outsole.
No official release date has been announced just yet, but expect Nike and select skate shops to likely drop these in the coming months.

Nike Dunk Low is Revealed With a "Reverse Argon" Color Scheme
Nike (NYSE:NKE +0.11%) realizes that out of all of the silhouettes that are currently in its catalog, the Dunk is what is attracting consumers both old and new alike to the brand most right now. And because of this, it’s going to continue riding the wave and push out a great deal of new colorways to the market, one being this blue and white Nike Dunk Low colorway.
For those who have knowledge about Dunks in the early 2000s, you’ll remember that the Swoosh team executed a co.jp release of the “Argon” Lows. This newest iteration essentially utilizes near-identical hues of that throwback colorway but in reversed fashion. An oceanic blue topples over the overlays and interior lining, while a brighter shade of blue makes its way to the quarter panels, tongues, collars and perforated toe boxes. Hits of white also get their playing time as they pop up on the Swooshes, laces, heel branding and backdrops of the tongue banners. Below, the midsoles are treated with white and come mated with an outsole that matches up with the aforementioned overlays.
No release info has been announced by Nike just yet, but you can likely expect these to drop in the coming months for $100 USD.

Ranking the Best Patta x Nike Collaborations
If the Amsterdam-based streetwear brand Patta has one defining quality, it’s restraint. Even in 2009, undoubtedly the label’s peak thanks to a number of now-legendary collaborations with Nike (NYSE:NKE +0.25%) , it was firmly a brand for those in the know. It traded on subtlety and steered away from the brash graphics of its American counterparts, making it the educated choice for streetwear connoisseurs — and the same can be said for the brand today.
Patta’s understated nature has played into its success among the IYKYK crowd, and that spirit has carried through today: in the decade since their release, the brand’s 2009 Nike Air Max 1s have undoubtedly acquired grail status. But despite the brand’s laid-back ethos, it has swung big with its collabs. As a result, over the years, Patta was sure to experience a few misses, but for every questionable release came a string of hits for the Dutch imprint, and more often than not the releases went on to earn cult acclaim.
Not every release is going to become an icon such as the “Cherrywood” or “Chlorophyll” AM1s. But as we approach the launch of Patta’s latest offering, the Nike Air Max 1 “Monarch,” it’s safe to expect that the brand is onto another hit. In honor of this release and Patta’s rich collaborative history with Nike, HYPEBEAST’s Editors have ranked their favorite collaborations over the years. We bet you can already guess the winner.
HERE'S YOUR FIRST LOOK AT TRAVIS SCOTT X NIKE'S AIR MAX 1 "CAVE STONE"
Following closer looks of the “Wheat” and “Baroque Brown” iterations, early images of Travis Scott x Nike‘s Air Max 1 in “Cave Stone” have been revealed by sneaker insider @jfgrails.
Unlike the first two pairs’ earthy and dark hues, the third variation boasts cooler shades throughout. The overlays are dressed in powder blue, while the mesh underlays and Swooshes sport a light gray tone. Elsewhere, the heels and mudguards come in charcoal gray. Rounding off the silhouette are the black midsoles and treading, as well as the checkered banners on the heels and near the lacing system.
Travis Scott x Nike’s Air Max 1 “Cave Stone” has yet to receive an official price point and release date. However, reports state that the kicks might drop this holiday season.
