In a sneaker match made in heaven, Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci and Nike have teamed up for a second time. After collaborating in 2014 on NikeLab's Air Force 1 boot silhouettes, Tisci is back to lend his footwear-savvy hand to another classic: the Nike Dunk. Tisci's version, coined the Dunk Lux High, features a high, boot-like silhouette and an exaggerated version of Nike's signature swoosh. Tisci, aside from his love for basketball, explained his reasoning for wanting to collaborate with the brand to Vogue.com, saying, "The opportunity makes a big statement. I think it's a dream of any designer's to be in everybody's home." The full-grain leather sneakers will retail for $300 and be available February 11 exclusively in North American on NikeLab. We fully expect sneaker-loving celebs (ahem, Kendall Jenner) and street style stars alike to snap these up.
