Over the last 37 years, the Nike Dunk Low has gone from basketball staple to streetwear icon. Recently, a pair covered in graffiti-reminiscent details emerged, suggesting the Swoosh is nodding to the design’s importance as the latter.
Canvas-like panels appear all across the latest take on Peter Moore’s beloved design. Initial images of the sneakers depict unrefined edges to each overlay, perhaps as a nod to the grittiness often associated with graffiti art. Profile swooshes, laces and outsoles on the upcoming Nike Dunk opt for a pitch-“Black” makeup, while the most former two components’ surroundings indulge in an abstract mix of purple, pink and greyscale tones. The blotchy pattern covers the tongue as well, while traditional “NIKE” branding on the sock-liner is accompanied by a “spray-painted” counterpart that hints at the shoes’ colorway inspiration.
Official Nike SNKRS release details haven’t been disclosed by the brand yet, but that’s likely to change as summer inches closer. In the meantime, enjoy an early look at the pair ahead, courtesy of Instagram user @sandbox_ds.
Elsewhere under the NIKE, Inc. umbrella, the Air Jordan 1 Hi ’85 “Georgetown” is expected to launch stateside on April 2nd.
