Following up on the successful launch of ?uestlove’s early 2011 collaboration, Nike Sportswear issued a bunch of additional Dunk High ACs. Patterned after the VNTG Blazer, the Autoclaved Dunk High switched soles and Swooshes to look more like the original Beaverton court kicks than the ‘Be True’ college basketballer we’ve come to know and love. It looks like the only other NSW classic that has surpassed the Dunk in terms of enduring relevance and sheer volume of colorways was also slated to receive a similar treatment, though you’ll notice that this ‘Blazer’ Nike Air Force 1 Low keeps its iconic Pivot Point cupsole on this belly-Swooshed grey suede sample. Let us know if you’ll cop these (assuming these aren’t shots from the cutting room floor) and stick with Sneaker News for release dates along with more rarities and unreleased gems.

@SnpdoI'm pretty sure Razon is right. The pivot point is the circular pattern on the sole. When the dunks were outfitted with the AC soles, they got the zig zag pattern that you find on bottoms of blazers.
@Snpdo word up lol
@Snpdo LMAO I would love to know too
