As you may have heard, Nike is releasing an SB Dunk Low inspired by Bart Simpson, the Simpson family’s eldest son and mischievous hellraiser. Bart joins father Homer and mother Marge in the family of SB Dunk drops, though it’s clear that Bart has the most direct connection to the shoe due to his own skateboarding obsession. Although none of the Simpson Dunks feature direct references to The Simpsons or the character, it is one of the more fondly remembered sequences in Nike SB history, and with Lisa and Maggie still to receive theirs, the likelihood of this series extending increases.
The design of the shoes adheres to Nike’s strategy of dressing the shoes in the character’s signature ensembles. The upper is coloured in bright yellow, orange, and blue to match the character’s skin tone and attire, while the white Swoosh represents Bart’s socks and soles. The neon green insole pays homage to his mode of transportation.
Although an official release date has not been announced, these are expected to arrive in skateshops and Nike SB accounts in the near future.
