Concepts x Nike SB Dunk High "Turdunken" release info

Concepts and Nike SB have teamed up once again for another Dunk collaboration. This time the duo have chosen the Dunk High silhouette and a Thanksgiving cultural reference - the turducken - a deboned chicken stuffed inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey. To play on the name, the "Turdunken" draws most of its inspiration and colors from the mallard duck. Concepts has created a turkey over box for the special packaging alongside a family dinner theme and Nerf football. An apparel collection will also release. Concepts will drop the collection and exclusive packaging on November 14 before a wider SNKRS app release for the sneakers on November 21. Retail for the special box is $249 and $120 for the regular version.

Lay Zhang x Converse Chuck 70 release info

Chinese singer Zhang Yixing, known better as Lay Zhang, has joined forces with Converse once again. Last year, the artist debuted a Chuck 70 with a side pouch that symbolized the sandbags tied to his feet during training. He also collaborated on a Chuck 70 with glow-in-the-dark soles that paid homage to his days of dancing and training in a dark studio. For his latest Chuck 70, the artist has chosen a canvas white upper and adorned it with an intricate blue pattern typically found in Chinese pottery along the tongue and heel panel. A bandana in the same pattern wraps around the sneaker and is meant to symbolize a union between the East and West. These arrive on November 13.
