Classics Revisited: Nike Dunk “Ugly Duckling” Pack (2001)

nike dunk ugly duckling pack Classics Revisited: Nike Dunk Ugly Duckling Pack (2001)


In 2001, Nike introduced the new Pro B line of Dunk Lows with slightly fatter laces and new materials on the upper – a clear skateboard-specific line of footwear that preceded the first official line of Nike SB Dunk footwear. In the mid-80′s, thee Dunk, along with the Air Jordan 1, was a rather popular selection as a skate shoe as they both formed a cult hype alongside its original intent of being a sporty basketball shoe. Hence the 2001 Pro B line was somewhat of a throwback to that earlier era, as they featured the aforementioned fatter laces and more durable materials on the upper, and a few versions of the Pro B even came packed with a fatter, padded tongue and more durable ‘grip-tape’ uppers; skateshops across the nation would begin to stock the Pro B Dunks prior to Nike SB becoming an official label, and they’ve have become quite the coveted item among Dunk loyalists and collectors.

This particular set of Dunk Low Pro B releases include a trio of wildly eccentric colorways dubbed the ‘Ugly Duckling’ Pack which include the ‘Plum’, ‘Veneer’, and ‘Ceramic’ colorways. Although these were not an official designated ‘Pack’ of releases, they were grouped together for their eye-catching color-blocking, exclusivity in Japan, and outstanding materials (the suede uppers were purely unmatched and the hit of mesh on the ankle and tongue provided the perfect balance). Hardly ‘Ugly’, but the releases were certainly against the norm of that era – even considering the rebellious history of Dunk colorways. In addition to the three Dunks, another wildly arranged Dunk colorway dubbed the ‘Viotech’ was released in 2002, and is often mistakenly included as one of the Ugly Ducklings. More of this set of Dunks from Classics Revisited below, so take a look and stay tuned for this week’s final Nike Pack feature!

Nike Dunk “Olympic Pack” – Available

June 21st, 2012 by | 9 comments

nike dunk olympic pack available 1 570x379 Nike Dunk Olympic Pack   Available

Nike Sportswear has a six-pack of ‘World Basketball Festival’ sneakers on tap for later this summer, but without the three letters on the tongue of the red Nike Dunk High pictured above, they would have had to look for a different theme.  Those WBF AF1s and Dunks have the same script that appears on the ‘Olympic’ Dunk High in tribute to USA Basketball, and without 1992′s immortal Dream Team, they might have looked a bit more like the red- or black-on-white pairs that, by contrast to the University Red Highs, are as simple and understated as they come.  Click through for more details like the Lows’ corduroy Swoosh and look for the Nike Dunk ‘Olympic’ Pack at select NSW stores like Kith.

The ‘Original 7′ Nike Dunks forever linked Arizona, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, St. Johns, UNLV and Villanova with the expression ‘Be True to Your School’.  No longer just a lesser single from The Beach Boys, ‘Be True’ stood for a certain style of two-toned colorblocking that’s been the Dunk’s default for over a quarter-century.  And when that style collides with NIKEiD, not only can you pick whichever colors you want to use, but you can also define your own ‘school spirit’ with a new blocking pattern of your choice.  The Nike Dunk ‘Be True’ iD features options ranging from classic BTTYS-style varsity colors all the way to glossy metallics and all of them can be personalized with heel detailing.  Check out some samples below and let us know which palette you chose to build your ‘Be True’ Dunk iDs.

nike dunk low what the sekure customs Nike Dunk Low What the Sekure? Customs by Sekure D

Color-swap customs are the hottest trend in sneaker customization today, but this is an art form that reached today’s heights on the wings of unique designs by legendary artists like Nash Money and SBTG.  Australia’s Sekure D could easily etch his own face into that Mt. Rushmore, a guy who’s crafted so many custom Dunks over the years that he could put his own spin on the infamous ‘What the Dunk’ mashup that foreshadowed the recent trend toward hybrid design.  This custom Nike Dunk Low ’What the Sekure?’ combines a huge variety of D’s handiwork into one design whose cohesion is a testament to the artist’s eye for arrangement, and they’ll be available from his e-store starting Monday.

NFL x Nike Dunk High & Low – AFC SOUTH

nfl x nike dunk high low afc south NFL x Nike Dunk High & Low – AFC SOUTH

The first pick in the NFL Draft has been somewhat anticlimactic for the past several years since rules changed to allow the number one pick exclusive pre-draft signing rights.  The days of an Eli-fueled free-for-all are all but gone, and instead we know already that Andrew Luck is set to replace Peyton Manning as the Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback.  Luck enters the league the same year Nike gets exclusive licensing rights to NFL products, and along with the new jerseys everyone’s buzzing about, we’ve seen a ton of Nike x NFL sneakers today, arranged into packs by division.  For the Colts and the rest of the AFC South, it’s the Nike Dunk in both High (Indianapolis and Houston Texans) and Low (Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans), a split unique to the entire eight-division collection.  The Highs are done in a very clean blocking pattern while the lows go for a bit more contrast; is it possible to put aside your rooting interests to decide which ones are the best looking kicks?  Let us know what you feel with regard to both aspects and stick with Sneaker News for the NFC West and South.

dunk low fall 2012 grey red 4 Nike Dunk Low   Grey   Purple   Red

Sneaker News’ recent look at the fall 2012 lineup of Dunk Highs from Nike Sportswear featured three styles across four different pairs, so while the Nike Dunk Low doesn’t have that many on display here today, this pair’s connection to one of the Highs suggests additional lowtops come Q3. The Lows we’re certain are on the way match the SB-like double-layer Swooshed grey and teal Highs and apply the same speckled print to the midsole of a grey-based, purple and red-accented design that comes off like a potential Toronto Raptors alternate jersey. Might you make them one of your go-to looks when they drop at NSW retailers next season? More images await your click below, and be sure to stick with Sneaker News for word on their US availability.
