The Nike Dunk Low has seemingly become one of the brand’s most ubiquitous models of the last five years. And while college-inspired color-blocking continues to dominate wish-lists, Peter Moore’s 37-year-old design continues to deliver compelling styles inspired by everything from Japanese festivals to fruit.
Recently, the made-for-basketball silhouette appeared in an avocado-inspired ensemble. Part of a larger collection including pairs inspired by dragon fruit and bananas, the newly-surfaced colorway features a predominantly dark green, textured fabric meant to resemble the American fruit’s most outer layer. Vibrant green peeks out from underneath the Nike Dunk‘s series of overlays, further creating a connection to the avocado. Lateral quarter panels are stamped with a produce market-like “sticker” reading “product of nike beaverton, oregon,” with a similar graphic landing on the sock-liners. The tongue’s underside boasts nutritional facts for the shoes’ muse, while inner lining opts for a faint shade of the avocado’s inner layer. Lastly, a knit farmers’ market-appropriate bag is packaged with the latest take on Moore’s creation.
Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a Nike SNKRS launch as summer gets going.
