Nike Skateboarding is adroit at incorporating themes into their shoes, utilizing colors and graphics that subtly evoke a muse without hitting too on-the-nose. And then there’s the Nike SB Dunk High Picnic; subtlety be damned.
The colorful new style starts out with a slight nod to the signature summer meal, boasting a red plaid upper. Sure, it looks like a picnic tablecloth, but most red plaid does; that doesn’t necessarily mean anything.
But then, unequivocally underscoring the theme, black ants — the bane of any picnic — are stitched in marching order from heel to toe. Remember that part about now hitting too on-the-nose? Forget that.
Just about as summery a style as you can get, the Nike SB Dunk High Picnic is now hitting select retailers nationwide.
