To call Daniel Dumile elusive is an understatement. And somehow, the UK born, New York City-raised MC of many monikers – the most familiar being MF DOOM – managed to get on Nike's radar in the mid-2000s. DOOM would be immortalized on the aptly coined Nike Dunk SB High "MF DOOM."
Released in 2007, after an epic eight year run of album releases that included solo triumphs (Operation: Doomsday (1999), Mm.. Food (2004)), lauded instrumental projects (Special Blends 1+2 (2004)), and a collaborative masterpiece (Madvillainy with producer Madlib (2004)), the kicks are as intricately woven together as DOOM's eccentric rhyme pattern and flow. Designed by Frenel Morris, the upper features a combination of black nubuck, grey leather, grey nubuck and grey ostrich. 3M Piping lines the upper while a metallic silver tongue featuring DOOM's patented Doctor Doom-inspired mask appears on the tab. Red laces, DOOM branding on the ankle of the shoe, and clear soles encompassing artwork from the rhymeslinger's faux-comic storyline show that Morris and Nike took extra care with these.
