California-based skate brand, StrangeLove Skateboards’ latest collab with Nike aims to bring a little extra love to your Valentine’s Day this year. Named Nike SB Dunk Low, these kicks were designed and inspired by StrangeLove owner Sean Cliver’s lifelong passion for skateboarding. 

The pair utilizes crushed velvet on the white base layer, pink suede on the overlays, and a red swoosh and tongue tag. Both Nike and StrangeLove put love into the heel with a co-branded skull-heart in red and blue.

The nostalgic packaging is an ode to the elementary school days, back when we’d hand craft Valentine’s Day cards for each of our classmates. With every purchase, you will get not only the shoes, but a special card and customized shoebox. The corporate version of a romantic touch, I guess. 

The shoe will be available for purchase as soon as February 1st on the SkateLove site, with a wider release scheduled for February 7th at select Nike SB stores. The Nike SB Dunk Low could be the final touch to your Valentine’s look.

So what do you think, are you in Iove with this drop?
