Magnus Walker, Nike SB’s Unlikely Collaborator, Explains His Sneakers

The pair of sneakers clanging around in the washing machine is not going to come out any cleaner. The shoes, which have already been doused with coffee and motor oil, are not in there to be rinsed, to be made new again. Quite the opposite, in fact. They are pressed together in a laundry bag, locked in a centrifugal embrace with spare nuts and bolts that beat into their leather and wear them down while the cycle winds. The abrasion is the point.

Car Collector Magnus Walker Gets a Nike SB Dunk Collab

Just a few months removed from a set of Nike SB Dunk Lows inspired by vintage race cars, another automobile-themed SB Dunk is expected to arrive soon. For this pair, the model switches to the Nike DB Sunk High and calls in well-known British car collector Magnus Walker for what is said to be an official collaboration. The sneaker uses an off-white based in a mix of materials and is accented with bright red and blue, colors which are seemingly inspired by Walker’s 1971 Porsche 911 T 277.

Nike SB Turns Magnus Walker’s 1971 Porsche 911 T “277” Into A Dunk High

Nike SB further delves into the unexpected, teaming up with “Urban Outlaw” Magnus Walker on a very special, luxury sportscar inspired Dunk High. Revealed via insiders earlier today, the pair adapts Walker’s Porsche 911 T “277” to an uncanny level of detail. The coloring of the body itself is mimicked quite well, with both the suede and canvas exteriors clad in a neutral white shade. Along the toe — similar to the hood of the car itself — a pop of red clashes with the aforementioned but complements the piping of the ankle flaps, the trim along the counter, and 3/4ths of the outsole. Elsewhere, the paint job’s light blues influence the Swoosh, laces, and tongue label, while the titular “277” prints in bold atop the heel.

THE SPIRIT OF AMG: THE SILBER-SAU With Magnus Walker

There are cars out there that defy the odds. Cars that, according to many, shouldn’t be capable of what they’ve achieved and yet despite that, they did. Such creations deserve a place in the annals of automotive history not just because of what they were capable of, but also because of what they represent. All of you who are familiar with Magnus Walker would know that he is all about Porsches. That’s not the case, however, as the Porsche enthusiast and collector branched out into the wider spectrum of rare, obscure, and exotic cars - like this Silber-Sau.

Watch Magnus Walker Put This Homage to the Famed Mercedes ‘Red Pig’ Racer to the Test

When someone says, “performance car,” most people don’t automatically think Mercedes-Benz sedan. But the fact is, Stuttgart’s Silver Star has some monsters in its closet, chief among them, the 300 SEL 6.3 and, later, the 450 SEL 6.9. The original 300 SEL 6.3, built between 1968 and 1972, stuffed a 6.3-liter V-8 engine from the 600 SEL limousine—the preferred vehicle of popes, pop stars and dictators—into a “normal” sedan, known by Mercedes insiders as the W109, and of which a total of 6,526 examples were made.

Street Racing Through LA With Magnus Walker, The World’s Most Notorious Porsche Collector

“Yesterday I drove a $4 million Bugatti Chiron Pur Sport, which was really impressive,” says Magnus Walker, “but it’s a car that is way out of my league.”. From looking at his Instagram, you wouldn’t believe any car is out of Magnus Walker’s league. One day he’s cruising around in a six-figure Ferrari in Los Angeles, another he’s testing the chops of the new Ford Bronco in the middle of nowhere. You see, Walker has become one of the most recognizable Porsche collectors and customizers in the world — known as much for his signature “Outlaw” builds as his signature dreadlocks and Gandalf beard — and with that repute comes the opportunity to drive all manner of rarefied automobiles, if not own them. Despite that access, there’s still plenty left on his vehicular bucket list, and that’s where Daniel Malikyar comes in.
