The flamingo is considered as the bird of leisure thanks to its water-wading and association with Florida and it will now be known for inspiring a slick Nike style. The Nike SB Dunk High Flamingo takes the chilled-out feel of the waterfowl and uses it to craft a very cool, new colorway.

Th most noticeable aspect of the sneaker is its dusty pink, cracked leather upper made to feel like the feathers that are found on the animal. This is balanced against healthy doses of teal on the outsole and lining while a yellow-and-pink tongue tag drive home the tropical theme. The white midsole and laces come across as subtle but are actually very important in countering the texture and tone of the sneaker and not making it overpowering.

These are available now at select Nike retailers if you’re interested, which makes them considerably easier to catch than an actual live flamingo.
