Boasting recycled construction for the familiar colorway.

Nike Brings Back The Panda Dunk High, But In Next Nature Form

You know them, you’ve seen them, chances are pretty good that you already have a pair. The “Panda” Dunks have defined this decade, a single pair representative of the inescapable Dunk hype of the past few years. While the High version may not be as frequently seen or released, it boasts the same exact easily-worn configuration, making it a perfect candidate to graft Nike’s Next Nature initiative onto a sought-after pair.

As a quick explainer, shoes bearing the “Next Nature” name all boast at least 20% recycled material by weight, typically coming via retreated rubber in the soles. Those who check into our coverage on a regular basis will know that this is far from the first Dunk to be initiated into the Next Nature program. In fact, it’s arguably the most frequent model to bear that sustainable stamp, with recent pairs like the Dunk Low “Reverse Mocha” and Dunk Low SE “Sea Glass” carrying it forward. More than anything, this Panda High displays Beaverton’s commitment to this ecologically-minded push, placing one of the company’s biggest money makers under its umbrella.

The Nike Dunk High Next Nature “Panda” is expected to drop in the next few months. Though a retail price hasn’t been confirmed, similar releases have commanded $130.

For an already available pair, check out the Nike Dunk Low “Waffle,” just restocked earlier today.
