12. Nike Dunk Low “Aloha” (Kicks Hawaii)
YEAR OF RELEASE: 2004
• "The Kicks/Hi Dunk was part of the Jesse Leyva early days (same w/the Wu-Tang and Pharrell Dunks), part of a shop series designed to build up the Nike brand amongst the cool kids. The Hawaiian-based retailer, and homie Ian Ginoza included design cues that were, as you can see, Hawaiian-inspired. In addition to having “ALOHA” on the heel, and “HAWAII” on the tounge, the middle of the upper features a Hawaiian-styled weave made out of bamboo called “Lauhala.”
