THE HEART OF THE CITY
FRAME’s first collaboration with Nike SB is a story about the most universal reason for our existence – love. At the heart of the city where people of different races, gender, age, and culture coexist, the common element we share is love. Translating to ‘my love’ in Arabic, “Habibi” Dunk Low is a celebration of love for skateboarding, sneakers, and the city where FRAME was founded.
DOUBLE SWOOSH, COLORWAY,
The colorway – black, green, red, and white – is inspired by the colors of the Middle East. Two unlikely materials, leather and corduroy, are patched together as a representation of love. The diamond ripstop on the quarter is reminiscent of the crisscross patterns of traditional fishnets that once filled the harbors.
DOUBLE TONGUE & SHOELACES
The black and white double tongues symbolize the equality and unity between men and women. The black tongue has a pearl imagery to pay homage to the pearl divers, while the removable
white tongue contains a falcon to reflect the falconry heritage.
Inspired by the patterns from shemagh – a red and white checkered scarf traditionally used to protect the face and head from the desert heat and dust – is printed with a vintage aesthetic. The black aglet at the tip of the laces also takes the detail from agal, a black rope-like band placed over the head to hold the head scarf in place.
INSOLE & OUTSOLE
The symmetrical, Arabesque pattern is a tribute to the oldest skate spot in Dubai, the Memorial Fountain. The sand-color gum soles give the imagery of stepping on the desert dune.
