Official Images Of Matthew Zaremba and the Nike Dunk Low Collab

Matthew Zaremba has always had a knack for creative expression. He has amassed a considerable following for his unique artworks, most of which entail powerful graphics and messages that visually articulate various topics from politics to human emotions.

But he’s also a veteran of the streetwear industry as he’s spent a majority of his career operating as the marketing director for Karmaloop —

one of the pioneers of streetwear e-commerce — as well as Bodega where he is constantly cooking up new ways of storytelling through product and shining a light on communities and the newer generation of creatives.

Prior to all of his experiences working in the space, Zaremba was just a kid who grew up in Boston with obsessions over skateboarding, graffiti art, and hip hop.

And gravitating towards all of these cultures eventually manifested into developing an affinity for sneakers, more specifically silhouettes that provided function first and style second.

He’s got an expansive array of sneakers in his repertoire, but when it comes to selecting a sneaker that’s made the most profound impact on his life, it all boils down to one shoe — the Nike Dunk Low.

As a loyal Swoosh head, the Dunk has always resonated with him for its functionality, undeniable cultural impact and its cyclical nature.

, and that’s why he elected to spotlight the model for this latest Sole Mates installment.
