Nike and CNCPTS collaborations on ‘Lobster’ SB Dunks remain some of the most popular and iconic Nike Dunks the brand has ever created. They have been made in Red, Yellow, Blue, Green and Purple variations, all of which are coveted by sneaker collectors worldwide. The concept itself for this particular pair was inspired by the traditional New England lobster dinner experience.
Creator Rob Heppler recalled in an interview for Sneaker News:
I was looking at the Nike SB webpage and only two shoes jumped out at me. Then I thought about Nick Diamond’s Tiffany Dunk and that Gucci one. They both had that weird luxury thing. So then I’m like, “F*ck. What does Boston have?” When someone’s visiting, they always want to have lobster. Lobster is the only thing on the menu that says “market price,” or considered to be very expensive.
The Red Lobster was the original Lobster style Dunk designed in collaboration with the pioneering Boston-based streetwear company Concepts (CNCPTS), one of the first stores in the country to carry the Dunk SB line. The sneakers feature tonal reds with speckled shell-like overlay, leather Swoosh, and bib-inspired interior lining.
This set of two samples is particularly rare, as the left shoe is a prototype/sample made before the production run and has notably different colors and features than the production-run Red Lobster.
Nike與CNCPTS聯乘推出「Lobster」SB Dunk，榮登Nike Dunk系列最受歡迎及最具代表性的款式之一。「Lobster」SB Dunk有紅、黃、藍、綠、紫色，全部廣受世界各地的球鞋藏家青睞。設計本身的概念來源，則是美國新英格蘭地區的龍蝦大餐。
設計師Rob Heppler在Sneaker News網站上的一篇採訪中憶述：
「瀏覽Nike SB網頁時，只有兩雙球鞋吸引住我的目光。然後我想起Nick Diamond的Tiffany Dunk和那款Gucci Dunk，兩者都有一種古怪的奢華感。於是我想：『糟糕，波士頓有什麼？』來波士頓的人總想吃龍蝦。龍蝦是餐單上唯一寫著『時價』的食物，給人一種非常昂貴的印象。」
「Red Lobster」是最先誕生的「Lobster」Dunk，由Nike與Concepts（即CNCPTS）聯手設計。Concepts是波士頓的元老級街頭服飾品牌，也是美國首批出售SB Dunk系列的商戶。「Red Lobster」鞋身的紅色深淺交錯，物料表面有小孔，質感彷似貝殼，兩側飾有皮革製的單鉤標誌，內襯花紋的靈感來自吃龍蝦時用的格仔圍兜。
本次上拍的一雙「Red Lobster」尤為罕見，其中左腳是一隻在量產前製作的原型/樣品鞋，顏色和細節與量產的「Red Lobster」均有明顯差異
