Nike re-introduces the ever-popular Dunk Low sneaker in classy faux crocodile skin and dusted gum bottoms.
For the next couple of releases, Nike will focus on gaining market share for the favored sneaker. One of their first casual releases that also doubles as a dress shoe. While many counted out the classic silhouette, the luxurious details of black leather, gilded branding, faux crocodile skin, and dusted gum bottoms have updated the iconic model from casual to classy. The release is one of many which intend to warm up the famed sneaker that has lost its hype with a younger demographic.
Its initial release was in 1985, a far cry from crocodile skin and gum bottoms if you asked me.
In comfort and class, the leather base is accented by a matte black, overlay by a high gloss of crushed brown with markings to match the famed crocodile leather. Combined, the texture and color of the overlays mimic crocodile loafers, trading in its slip-on for Dunk Low laced-up, low-cut.
Its signature branding tags are redone, to match the black and brown tones that blend in with the rest of the design. Another typical brand found at the heel tab has been removed for a cleaner and superior look. Instead, it has been replaced to spell outdone up in a gilded finish on the lateral heel. A dusted gum sole unit finishes off the sneaker, keeping the design fresh and clean.
The drop will cost $110 on an average Dunk release. Meanwhile, there is no telling what the resale on these would be like once resellers get their hands on them.
