Nike Seamless Dunk – Unreleased Sample

nike seamless dunk 2006 sample Nike Seamless Dunk   Unreleased Sample

Not that the Nike Dunk needs a revival of any kind, but it has taken a backseat to the Air Force 1 over the last couple of years. Perhaps Nike Sportswear is taking a slower approach with some Anniversary plans like a Dunk-XXX celebration in 2016, but this 2006 sample gives some insight into some cancelled plans of a brand-new Dunk that might’ve changed the way we looked at this classic basketball shoe. Here’s a look an unreleased sample of the Nike Seamless Dunk, built completely without seams (duh) and fortified with a composite material to make up the classic silhouette of the shoe. Those pieces are also independent of one another, and some areas like the outer toe-box and heel have thicker and deeper ridges for added protection in high-wear zones, so were these intended to be a skate shoe? Check out the gallery of this rare Nike Dunk Low below and because you’ll never find these ever in a store, see the available sample pair from bsvendetta on eBay.

Nike Dunk Low GS “Rainbow Dot” Pack

nike dunk low gs rainbow dot pack Nike Dunk Low GS Rainbow Dot Pack

Before patterned prints rose to dominate the sneaker world over the past couple years, Nike Sportswear made fairly extensive use of polka dots on the Dunk family.  This activity peaked from 2008-10 and hasn’t been much of a factor as the animals and florals of the world rose to prominence of late, but today we see two new Nike Dunk Low GS designs with a multicolored dot anchor.  With red, yellow and two shades of blue colored microdots on black or white leather bases, these manage a skillful balance of eye-catching and fundamental, and you can see more after the jump below.

Sneaker News just mentioned that the Nike Dunk Low for kids is one of NSW’s longest running Chinese New Year traditions, and now we see that next year’s iteration has at least two different styles on tap. This second ‘Year of the Snake’ Dunk Low GS features fewer scales than its white/black counterpart, but the mix of silver and gold tones on this one might actually be a bit more eye-catching overall. Stick with Sneaker News to see what else Nike Sportswear will offer in honor of the serpentine celebration and let us know which YOTS Dunks are better after you’ve seen these up-close below.

Nike Dunk Low – Black – Grey – Red

Should we take this as foreshadowing that the most recent Nike Dunk Low previewed here on Sneaker News is about to arrive at Nike Sportswear retailers? This new pair featuring the same materials and blocking pattern suggests the answer is yes as its combination of black and greys with red branding serves as a more aggressive alternative to that cooler design we previewed a couple weeks back. Another subtle twist that proves the classic BTTYS formula still has plenty of tricks up its sleeve, this new Dunk Low just arrived at NSW stores like Finish Line.

Would you even be reading this page were it not for Nike Dunk Low releases just like the ones pictured above? Sneaker News recently completed a week-long look back at some of the classic turn of the century styles that rose to prominence along with the Nike Skateboarding juggernaut, and through this retrospective, gained perspective on just how influential this classic silo has been over the past decade-plus. The latest features a classically styled colorway somewhere between ‘Be True’ and ‘J-Pack’ and rocks the ubiquitous white midsole, which you can see along with more details like the ballistic nylon ankle collar after the jump below.

Classics Revisited: Chris Lundy x Nike Dunk Low “Laser” (2003)

lundy laser dunks Classics Revisited: Chris Lundy x Nike Dunk Low Laser (2003)


When the new lasering technique hit the scene, Mark Smith and Nike did what any young child does with a new toy – they went HAM. Using the funky method to create the designs of the shoe, Mark Smith’s art direction led him to an entirely seamless concept while opting for a completely laser-etched upper to create the frame of the classics Air Force 1 Low (which we all know resulted in one of the greatest Air Force 1 Lows of all-time and one of our first Classics Revisited features ever). Mark present pro surfer and artist Chris Lundy with the opportunity to do the same with the Dunk Low, but instead of working within the constraints of the Dunk Low designs, Lundy took advantage of the smooth upper and went with a completely surf-inspired theme that he’s used in his artwork, with crashing ocean waves being the primary design concept of the shoe. Just 200 pairs of this version released to the public, although a much wider release of a variation (black midsole, gum outsole) did become available with a special edition box. Lasering is now reserved for select Nike Sportswear models and it isn’t as widespread as we’d like it to be, but here’s to hoping this insane breakthrough of the early 2000′s makes a come-back!
