Themed sneaker releases are always fun, especially when there is an interesting backstory involved. Skatepark of Tampa aka SPoT has decided to use their upcoming collaboration with Nike as an opportunity to tell the story of a pirate named Joe Gaspar.
The SPoT x Nike SB Dunk High Gasparilla tells the story of the fictitious Spanish pirate over the course of it’s black upper with a few illustrative elements. The most notable of these elements are the skull and crossbones flying above on the tongue and the stitched in pirate swords on the toe box. The otherwise downtempo colorway is perked up by pops of red on the outsole and a multicolored ankle collar that adds a decent amount of vibrancy to the model.
If you’re looking for this Nike SB Dunk High Gasparilla you can find it at SPoT on February 13 which is right around the time of the annual Gasparilla Pirate Festival.
