Medicom Toy have a long history of teaming up with Nike, and to celebrate Black Friday this year, the pair are back at it again. This time they’re working a slimmed down SB Dunk, also known as the SB Dunk Elite. Read on to get the latest and view the pair before release.
Medicom Toy are extremely well known for their “Bearbrick” collectibles/toys. They’re hugely popular in the streetwear world and are collected by many. The two brands first came together in 2002, and created the original Medicom Toy SB Dunk. However this year they’re back and better than ever, releasing a slimmed down version of the SB Dunk, known as the Dunk Elite. It features the same black denim look that the original featured, so will bring back many a warm memory for the more OG of us out there. For those of us who weren’t around when the original dropped, it’s the chance to take a sneaker history lesson, and own a piece of future history.
The Dunk Elite itself is a great silhouette, it’s essentially a slimmed down, lightweight version of the original. It was created by Nike SB with modern skaters in mind, the original is a legendary silhouette, however it is very dated at present, so an update was more than necessary. A Zoom sole is included for shock absorbance and a comfortable ride underfoot, and Medicom Toy branding can be found on the tongue of the sneakers.
If you’re liking the look of this legendary collaboration, the good news is you’ll be able to get your hands on them from Black Friday, November the 24th. They are indeed a limited release, so move fast if you’re set on getting your hands on a pair. Expect them to drop on Nike’s website, however we’re not sure where else yet.
