Ishod Wair is undeniably one of the gnarliest skateboarders on the planet. He stacked an insane amount of footage this year, and this is just the HD stuff. Ishod Wair and Real Skateboards dropped a little treat around Christmas, unfortunately I didn’t see this edit until now. Better late than never though.
In 2013, Ishod Wair was named Thrasher Skater of the Year. In 2015 he made his first appearance at a Super Crown, finishing second. Ishod Wair has many sponsors including Real Skateboards, Nike SB, Thunder, Spitfire, Fourstar Clothing, Monster, Stance Socks and Bones Swiss.
We can pretty much all agree that Ishod Wair deserves to have his name on a shoe. He’s won Skater of the Year, put out a series of super-good parts, etc. So it follows that he’d get his own edition the Dunk, the Dunk Low Pro IW. Is it the Ishod Wair pro model? The Skatepark of Tampa says yes; NikeBlog says no.
The shoe itself is a slimmed-down version of the classic Dunk, with a thinner collar and tongue, making it lighter and more flexible. It comes in black/light graphite/white and deep royal/white/gym red colorways. According to Sneakers Magazine—which also calls it an Ishod Wair pro model—it drops on December 31. Black Sheep, a shop in Charlotte, N.C., it is in stock now at Defy Boardshop.
