According to the Chinese zodiacal calendar, 2022 is set to be the “Years of the Tiger.” To celebrate, the Swoosh has prepped a kids’ Nike Dunk Low covered in details nodding to the striped cat.
Effectively, the upcoming pair is split in two section, with the forefoot indulging in a light grey that contrasts the predominantly-black arrangement that appears from mid-foot to spine. Both sections, however, feature high-quality suede material, with profile swooshes, overlays along the tongue and panels near the top of the tongue donning an intricate knit pattern. Golden tiger stripes are embroidered throughout the heel, with “NIKE” text at the Nike Dunk‘s spine opting for the same tone. Logos on the tongue label and sock-liner join the satin-covered collar in introducing a copper-reminiscent hue into the mix. Lastly, a semi-translucent, vibrant orange takes over the outsole, revealing black blotches that further nod to the tiger.
