Nike Dunk Low “Red Mesh” Rebuilt With 90s Branding

Unconventional Swooshes & a patriotic palette mark this grade school release.

Nike Dunk Low “Red Mesh” Rebuilt With 90s Branding

As the Nike Dunk Low has become a “for the family proposition,” easily attainable if you aren’t picky about the colorway, the widening scope of its target audience has opened up space to make more intriguing design choices. Though the upcoming Dunk Low “White/Blue/Red” is releasing in grade school sizing, the makeup of the shoes harkens to an era far before the time of anyone who’ll be rocking them.

In this application, embroidered “Nike” and “1972” tags rest on the forefoot, the logo replaces the brand’s name on the heel tag, and the insoles are clad in throwback fashion. As the icing on the cake, the tongue gets an all-mesh makeover, and the Nike logo printed towards the top of that piece is encased in a bubble. This batch of design quirks taken together embraces the heyday of Eastbay catalogs and maximalist sportswear design that dominated the 1990s, giving all of it a slight update to bring it into 2024.

Color-wise, the navy, red and white that pops in doses around the shoe is no doubt the reason they’ll be talked about in USA-adjacent terms. However, the teal and powder blue shades that dress the suede overlays hold them back from a total tribute. Otherwise, the palette choices here rest in pretty familiar territory, with enough pop and brightness to easily fit into an elementary school closet.

As of writing, there’s no concrete date or price set for the Nike Dunk Low GS “White/Blue/Red.” You can count on these becoming available at retailers and on Nike.com in the next month or so, commanding something in the range of $90 to $110.

For a wider sized SB release, take a look at the Nike Dunk Low “Joker” just recently announced.
