Objects of Desire
Design Bernard Buffet x Nike Dunk Low SB Paris (2002)
Art and sole. Among the rarest and most expensive shoes in the world, the Nike Dunk Low SB Paris sneakers were released in posthumous collaboration with French painter Bernard Buffet. This limited-edition model was specially made for Nike’s ‘White Dunk’ travelling art exhibition in 2002, in which artists were challenged to use shoes as canvases. Adorned with Buffet’s graphic Expressionist artwork, the model – of which only 150-200 were released – is now a collectible work of art in its own right, fetching up to £40,000 at auction. We’ll have to jog on (in other sneakers).
