Last week, images of the long-awaited Concepts x Nike SB Dunk Low “Orange Lobster” surfaced on social media, and now, the Boston-bred boutique has revealed the release details for its sneaker project.
The Concepts x Nike SB Dunk Low “Orange Lobster” will launch exclusively at Cncpts.com and at Concepts retail locations at 11 a.m. ET this Friday. The sneakers will only be available for drawing pick ups in-store while the online drop will be available at a first come, first serve basis.
In addition to the sneakers, Concepts is dropping a 130-piece apparel and accessories collection coinciding with its latest Nike SB Dunk collab. According to the boutique, the apparel pieces will add “a surrealist twist to the series, bridging the gap between art, fashion, luxury and unconventional creativity,” with the colors on the pieces paying homage to Spanish surrealist Salvador Dali.
What We Originally Reported on Nov. 16, 2022
Concepts’ much anticipated Nike SB Dunk Low “Orange Lobster” could finally be hitting retail soon.
The Concepts x Nike SB Dunk Low “Orange Lobster” dons a two-tone orange color scheme on the upper, with a darker shade of orange and a special speckled effect covering the overlay panels. The sneaker also features contrasting white accents on the tongue, shoelaces, and on the underlay of the signature Swoosh branding on the sides. The lobster theme continues with a bib-inspired print on the sock liner while black rubber bands are attached to the toe box resembling lobster claws. Breaking up the mostly orange look is a black midsole and an orange outsole.
The first Concepts x Nike SB Dunk Low “Lobster” colorway dropped in 2008 with a red-based pair that resembles the crustacean. Since the initial drop, the duo have launched a handful of collaborations and numerous “Lobster” makeups, most recently with the “Green Lobster” release in 2018. A “White Lobster” colorway of the project has also surfaced on social media last month, but the release details of the shoe weren’t revealed.
Despite an early look from @zSneakerheadz, launch details of the Concepts x Nike SB Dunk Low “Orange Lobster” have not yet been announced by either of the parties involved in the project.
In related Nike news, the brand has announced the launch of .Swoosh, which is its newest metaverse marketplace platform.
