It’s no secret that Sean Malto endured one of the worst injuries ever sustained on a skateboard but, since his recovery, he’s been stacking clips patiently. As his part debuts this week, there’s even bigger news on the horizon…
Coincidentally, Nike SB is celebrating 15-years of their highly popular Dunk and are releasing Sean’s take on the iconic model. Hosting samurai imagery and detail-specific stitching throughout, Malto’s customization of the Dunk went far beyond anyone’s imagination and generated the Dunk Elite.
Debuting on March 2nd, the Nike SB Dunk Elite is not your ordinary team model. Showcasing a durable knit upper with suede overlays will give off a sock-like feel that’s otherwise unknown amongst Dunk enthusiasts far and wide. Even more surprisingly, Sean opted for a thinner forefoot area and maintained the beloved Nike Zoom Air unit in the heel for support purposes.
Essentially, a newly constructed Dunk will be released this week and, given its technological advancements, expectations are high. Malto’s inspired Dunk will be released online and in-store at select skate shops and will retail for $115.
