Chase Shiel x The Kickz Stand is Paying Homage to Stüssy SB Dunk
words by angelyn
Making custom sneakers has been Chase Shiel’s pride and joy for over ten years. Chase’s custom sneakers often collaborate with creatives all over the world, and this time, Chase is paying homage to the highly sought after Stüssy SB Dunk with The Kickz Stand. Initially released in 2005, the shoes are designed to resemble the vanilla, chocolate and strawberry colour palette of Neapolitan ice cream. A pair of the Stüssy x Nike SB Dunks from 2005 sold for $10,000 on StockX.
The duo took this colour palette and introduced it to Nike’s Air max silhouette and crafted the sneaker from nubuck sourced directly from Japan. The swoosh is covered with pebble grain print, and the upper consists of suede in Chocolate with leather insoles for comfort. Just like how ice-cream sundaes are candied with cherries on top, the heels of the sneaker is embroidered with a cherry.
Get your hands on this limited-edition custom on the 28th of June at Chase Shiel’s website. Sizes run from 6 – 15 with half sizes available.
