The Salmon is an extremely persistent creature, traveling hundreds of miles upstream and leaping over obstacles, all while being bashed by constant rushing water. The migratory process of a salmon relates to the primal instinct of skateboarding. Replace the streams with streets and the spawning grounds with skate spots and it all begins to look very similar.
Michigan skate shop, Premier has teamed up with Nike SB to pay homage to the uphill battle of both worlds. Above, is an on foot look via SneakerShouts at the limited edition Nike SB Dunk Low "Fish Ladder". The sneaker features reflective speckled scales on the Nike Swoosh and heel and a fatty marbling meat pattern on the toe box, both details represent the Fish Ladder's physical texture, a beloved salmon from the local Grand Rapids area.
The Premier Skate x Nike SB Dunk Low "Fish Ladder" released last week alongside a Nike SB Janoski Max at Premier Skate. Tomorrow (November 21st), the Fish Ladder collection will hit global retailers like Tactics and Nike.com
