Famed (and likely mythical) pirate José Gaspar — “Gasparilla” — patrolled the oceans off the coast of Florida two centuries ago, but his legend lives on today; both in the annual festival that bears his name and the latest “Support Your Local” collaboration between Nike Skateboarding and the Skatepark of Tampa.
The SPoT x Nike SB Dunk High Gasparilla features a black leather upper adorned with pirate iconography; cutlasses are embroidered into either toe, and skull-and-crossbones peer off each tongue. The collar then deviates substantially from the neutral upper, as a multicolored effect — loose-knit thread designed to fray with wear — sharply contrasts, a nod to the plumage of pirates’ parrot pals.
The SPoT x Nike SB Dunk High Gasparilla releases February 25, but detailed photos of the shoe come today.
