The doors to the vault continue to crack open ajar a little bit more as Nike officially reveals plans to re-issue the 2001 classic – the Dunk Low co.jp “Plum”. As one of three colorful suede Dunks exclusive to Japan called the “Ugly Duckling” or “Ugly Dunkling” Pack, the Plums were known for its two-toned purple with red accents on the swoosh, laces, logos, and soles. Over time, the suede aged with alarming grace as the regal palette faded to a finish more akin to bordeaux red. Furthermore, the shoes were so beloved that Nike SB actually released them as Highs with fat tongues back in 2011. Revealed through some “vintage” style Japanese shopping catalogs, the Dunk Low co.jp “Plum” is confirmed to drop on February 7th for $110.
This leaves the door wide open for not only the other two of the Ugly Duckling Dunks – the “Veneer” and the “Ceramic” – as well as other Dunk Low Pro, Pro B, and other non-SB gems of that era. What other Dunks would you like to see return to stores in fully restored form?
