"Hawaii" Mike // Follow
After more than a year of "these are happening" and "these aren't going to be made," can't believe Nigel Sylvester's S.O.M.P. Dunk High is finally here! When you're as driven and passionate about what you do and work hard to achieve your goals, the payoff is so sweet. Nigel has done nothing but amaze me since I've been managing him and this is a pretty big feat being that he's the first BMX athlete to have a signature Nike sneaker release. He designed the shoe with my partner DJ Clark Kent when we were using the "Black Out" color palette like his 2nd signature G-Shock release. The upper consists of Euphoria Nubuck which has only been offered through the Bespoke AF 1 program. Safari print on the collar and eyestay which is a testament to NYC, the "Concrete Jungle." The outsole is gum cause the streets of NY are covered in it plus gum is best traction for Standing On My Pedals (S.O.M.P.).
Can't express how proud I am of this kid, toast the gods! The shoe releases tomorrow, 3/8, at select SB accounts and Nigel will be doing a in-store at Dave's Wear House at 123 Baxter St. NYC at 12 Noon. Come thorough and celebrate with the team.
