Michael Lau x Nike

Posted on September 29, 2006 Under Fashion

The name Michael Lau may not ring a bell to most of you, but it is a name you should probably know. Lau is a famous Hong Kong artist whose vinyl toys, artwork and past collaborations with Sony and soon Nike have earned him world class respect. Not only credited as a talented artist, but some say Lau is responsible for what street culture is today. All of his work is heavily influenced by American and Asian street culture, which gives him a wide fan base. Nike has finally teamed up with Mr. Lau to release a series of clothing and a pair of Dunk lows made of wood. 105 pairs of these highly anticipated shoes will go on sale at the grand opening of the central Nike Town in Hong Kong at midnight on the 29th. Each pair comes in a wooden box and is accompanied by a little skateboard and wooden figurine. If anyone wants to pick me up a pair or two a hefty reward will be yours! Retail will be $240 for the pack.
