This is no ordinary Half Cab. The classic silhouette has been given a vibrant makeover, drawing inspiration from the upcoming World Skateboarding Day and World Music Day (Fête de la Musique) - both of which fall on June 21st. 

The shoe's upper features a bold red, white, and blue color scheme, reflecting the colors of the French flag. But Parra's signature style is evident in the wavy edges, a design element seen in their recent Nike collaborations. Leaked images also reveal a playful bird graphic on the tongue and lateral branding, adding a touch of Parra's whimsical aesthetic.

The celebration extends beyond just the shoe. The special edition box also features abstract Vans typography and squiggly lines, perfectly complementing Parra's artistic flair.

While an official release date has not yet been announced, the clear connection to June 21st suggests this Parra x Vans Half Cab will be dropping soon. Fans should keep an eye on the brands' social media channels for the latest updates.

Plush velvet accents on the tongues and collars pay homage to the opulent interiors of Paris's iconic theaters, where velvet drapes and luxurious seating create an atmosphere of grandeur and sophistication.

The skate shoe's design features thoughtful details that celebrate the magic of cinema. The tongue labels and insoles showcase intricate designs that evoke the silver screen, adding a narrative layer for true fans to discover and appreciate.

The mud-dipped midsole provides an artisanal, handcrafted look, highlighting Nike's meticulous attention to detail. Completing the cinematic design is a semi-translucent outsole, which adds a modern touch while maintaining the classic SB Dunk Low silhouette.

Each pair of the Nike SB Dunk Low "City of Cinema" comes in special packaging, making the unboxing experience an event in itself. Customization is also possible, with an extra set of laces included.
