Nike SB Dunk Low Street Hawker CV1628-800 Release Date Deals, Price & Similar Sneakers
The “Street Hawker” Nike SB Dunk Low, designed by Guangzhou artist Jason Deng, offers large props for the bonding effect of China’s food culture. Above, a watercolor painting by Deng reveals the design inspiration: six regional dishes from six Chinese cities, along with a slew of other, subtly incorporated nods to Chinese cuisine.
Each Jason Deng Nike SB Dunk Low left and right shoe comes with a different style.
It uses a lighter beige for three flour-based dishes beginning from the left. The toebox in suede mimics the color and texture of Beijing’s green bean soup (Douzhi). Donut (Jiaoquan) patterns are combined with green bean soup on the forefoot. For a typical Xi’an dish, embossed suede on the lateral side displays shredded pita bread pieces: pita bread soaked in mutton soup. The mutton soup is mirrored across the lateral side in water-color patterns. In order to represent chopsticks, the Swoosh is depicted in a wood-grain texture. Water-color fading appears like Shanghai simple noodles, also called Yangchun noodles, on the lateral heel. On the lateral heel appears an embroidered 10-cent copper coin, hinting at Yangchun noodles. The left insole, influenced by traditional Chinese slang, resembles a blue sky, suggesting that people regard food as their heaven. The left midsole’s blue lining mimics the blue-and-white of fine porcelain bowls.
To reflect different heats, from spicy to sweet, the right shoe features hotter colors. From Chengdu hotpots in which dishes are cooked, the metallic color on the right toebox is pulled. Chili-oil treatments pool around the toebox while heating. On the lateral side, Ostrich leather is inspired by the crispy roasted goose skin that is popular in Guangzhou. The Silver Swoosh is similar to the metal hook used to hang a roast goose. In an aquarelle pattern around the eyelits, the flame and Lychee wood used to roast the goose appears. The heel counter can be found with shaved ice and taro balls, a popular Taipei dessert. The insole paints a bench terrace scene, a form of landscaping used to cultivate rice paddies. The collar lining represents the color of dishes made of beef. The outsole is yellow, reflecting cooking oils.
In black and white thread, both shoes come with heel tabs featuring Chinese calligraphy for “food.” In Chinese cuisine, four lace colours are influenced by four basic seasonings: green (shallots), yellow (ginger), white (garlic) and black (black pepper).
