The shoe marks Tiffany & Co’s first collaboration with Nike. But in 2005, the jeweler’s banner colors were the inspiration for the Diamond Supply Co and Nike SB Dunk lauded by skateboarders and sneakerheads alike. Resale for the shoe starts at $1,850 on StockX.
The collab comes as Tiffany works to shake off its old-fashioned image and attract younger customers. Tiffany has worked on a number of collabs since LVMH acquired the brand in 2021. including partnering with Beyoncé and Jay-Z. Gucci, another brand owned by LVMH, has released several collabs with Nike.
So far, sneaker collectors on Twitter are not as impressed with the upcoming Nike and Tiffany & Co. collaboration. Some are calling the shoe design lazy.
