What We’re Saying: Nike SB has tapped Japanese artist Verdy to deliver a new take on the Dunk Low, dedicated to his Wasted Youth label. Following the reveal of the sneaker at the end of last year, the sportswear brand has shared official images and release info for the anticipated pair.

According to Nike SB, Verdy’s Wasted Youth Dunk Low draws from punk and skate culture, and the desire to rebel against everything. The upper of the sneaker is dressed in patchwork denim, while contrasting red stitching provides pops of color, most notably via a rose graphic applied to the lateral Swoosh. Additional embroidery appears on the heels, where Wasted Youth is featured in white stitching. The heels are also adorned with metallic hardware similar to a D-ring belt, an accessory popularized by punk culture. The Dunks are then made complete with custom-printed insoles.

You can look forward to the Verdy x Nike SB Dunk Low “Wasted Youth” dropping on April 6, that is if you’re not too exhausted from the overwhelming amount of Dunk releases as of late.
