Celebrating San Francisco's Chinatown, this Dunk honors the people, values and culture that helped build one of the largest Chinese communities outside of Asia—and those who continue to make it thrive.
During the California Gold Rush, stories of "Gam Saan" (金山) or "Gold Mountain" attracted immigrants who ultimately carved out a place for themselves to preserve their traditions, laying a foundation for future residents. The Dunk High "Gold Mountain" is inspired by this neighborhood and the city that surrounds it.
The ocean-blue outsole pairs with earthy tones and textures throughout, nodding to the California landscape, while premium leather and luscious suede deliver style built to stand the test of time. Emerging through clouds, a Gold Mountain graphic represents hope, while the tongue and insole are adorned with lotus flowers and characters spelling 舊金山 (Gau Gam Saan, or "Old Gold Mountain"), a blessing of good fortune for every step.
