The Nike Dunk Low “Athletic Department” Comes With Aged Midsoles and Laces

Celebrating its 50th anniversary throughout 2022 with a slew of “Just Do It” themed propositions, The Swoosh is set to continue paying homage to its gargantuan influence and old-school roots throughout the new year with the Nike “Athletic Company” collection. After coordinating vintage palettes across the Beaverton brand’s most widely-adorned silhouettes, the Nike Dunk Low is returning for a sequel after employing a “Gorge Green” forerunner.

Exploring a monochrome aesthetic infused with OG interpolations, light grey suede overlays meet a crisp white canvas base layer for the beginnings of a premium dipped effort. Pairing egg nog tinted laces with the midsole’s matching aged ensemble, a solid grey coat envelops the tread in a clad fashion in tandem with the cast of its heel panel and accented tongue tab Swooshes completing the recurring theme. Outfitting the midfoot Swooshes in a heavily cracked finish, the latter in tandem with the pair’s sock liner, heel tab and lace tips proffer a boisterously vibrant red arrangement while a Bulldog motif and Athletic Company branding come affixed to the bright white insoles, completing the silhouette’s 80s harkened composition.

While no release date information has been shared just yet, in the meantime enjoy a first look at the upcoming Nike Dunk Low “Athletic Company” below.
