Cactus Plant Flea Market Shines Light on the Nike Dunk

November 11, 2020 - If there is a connective thread in Cactus Plant Flea Market's ongoing footwear collaborations, it is in finding ways to celebrate a human, optimistic viewpoint. Air and sunshine remain themes, with variations of CPFM's unique DIY styling articulating the vibe each time. With the Nike Dunk, CPFM toys with literal interplay among air, sunshine and shoe through a dynamic light refraction created with Swarovski® crystals.

The effect is maximized by an exaggerated topography for the crystals. There is an oversized Swoosh, borrowed from the prior CPFM Nike Blazer, extra padding to the tongue and detachable double lace flaps. All the angles of the crystals help the shoe become something like a disco ball.

In covering the upper, an imperfect hand-feel application of the crystals is true to both CPFM's aesthetic and Swarovski's technical acumen. Applied to the classic basketball silhouette, the merger of the two practices gives the Dunk a whole new shine.

The Nike x Cactus Plant Flea Market Dunk Low with Swarovski® crystals releases November 18, along with the Nike x Cactus Plant Flea Market just do it. Hooded Pullover with Swarovski® crystals, exclusively at cactusplantfleamarket.com.
