Although the Nike Dunk continues being a hot commodity, the sneaker design is 37 years old. To celebrate the model’s current moment in the limelight, the Swoosh has prepped an “Arctic Orange” makeover of the high-top’s original 1985 trim.
Previously used by UNDERCOVER, the Dunk High ’85 silhouette pales in popularity when compared to the low-top version of the late Peter Moore’s decades old design. Yet, the true-to-the-original proposition delivers a touch of heritage and quality that now-standard pairs don’t, specifically in regards to collar cushioning and sole unit shape. Unlike the debut Nike Dunk, however, the newly-surfaced pair features fabric overlays across the forefoot, midfoot and heel, delivering summer-ready style. Furthermore, the non-leather material is clad in an eye-catching “Arctic Orange” that also lands on the outsole underfoot. Lastly, midsoles boast a slightly-yellow finish for an “aged” look that harkens back to the sneaker’s mid-80s launch.
No firm Nike SNKRS release details have been disclosed by the brand, but that’s likely to change in the coming weeks.
