Perhaps the most popular and recognizable Nike SB Dunks in existence, Nike’s Dunk Low Pro SB 'Paris' is one of the most visually appealing designs produced by the brand. Approximately 200 pairs of the regular release were made for Nike’s traveling White Dunk Exhibition in 2003, an exhibit that featured several extremely limited SB Dunks created for the tour’s host cities. This pair in ‘Rope/Special Cardinal’ colors (utilizing tan-suede) represents Paris and features canvas overlays containing the artwork of French painter Bernard Buffet.


Born in Paris in 1928, Bernard Buffet was a prolific French expressionist painter who is best remembered as a bold rejector of abstract painting and part of the anti-abstraction group L'homme Témoin, which campaigned for the importance of representational art during a time when abstraction was a key trend throughout the art world. His some 8,000 works cover a plethora of concepts throughout art history including death, sex, politics and pop culture. Mr. Buffet was inducted into the Académie des Beaux-Arts in 1974.


The Paris SB Dunk is one of the most coveted designs by collectors worldwide.


Probablement le modèle le plus populaire et le plus reconnaissable qu’il soit, la Nike Dunk Low Pro SB 'Paris' constitue également l'un des designs les plus attrayants édités par la marque. Environ 200 paires furent commercialisées pour l'exposition itinérante White Dunk de Nike en 2003. Y étaient également présentées plusieurs versions SB Dunk très rares créés spécialement autour du thème des villes accueillant l’exposition itinérante.

Cette paire aux couleurs «Rope/Special Cardinal» (utilisant du daim beige) illustre Paris au moyen d’une superpositions de reproductions de toiles réalisées par le peintre français Bernard Buffet.


Bernard Buffet, né en 1928, inscrit rapidement sa peinture dans le courant expressionniste du début du XXème siècle. Membre de L’Homme Témoin, groupe éphémère de peintres qui refusent l’art abstrait, l’artiste reste fidèle à la peinture figurative tout au long de sa carrière. Son œuvre, parfois entre expressionnisme et Pop Art comme diront certains critiques, aborde de nombreux thèmes tels que la mort, le sexe, la politique et la culture pop. L’artiste reçoit la légion d’honneur en 1971, et est élu à l’Académie des Beaux Art en 1974.


La Paris SB Dunk est l'un des modèles les plus convoités par les collectionneurs du monde entier.
