Nike’s notorious “ugly duckling,” the Dunk Mid, is making a fierce comeback. Originally designed in 1985 by Peter Moore, this basketball sneaker has faced its fair share of naysayers. However, recent releases have proven its ability to turn skeptics into true believers.
With temperatures dropping worldwide, Nike introduces a new colorway for the mid-top Nike Dunk: “Dark Stucco/Neutral Olive/Light Bone.” This release aligns with Nike, Inc.’s autumn collection, drawing inspiration from military-style garments that have garnered significant attention. The sneaker boasts darker-colored panels on the forefoot, tongue, and heel, allowing lighter olive undertones to shine through in select areas. The profile swooshes and branding elements on the upper take on a “colorless” finish, which continues onto the midsole. The semi-translucent “Dark Stucco” outsole, reminiscent of the Air Jordan 1, completes the understated yet stylish offering.
Prepare yourself for an official launch on nike.com before the year ends. The Dunk Mid will retail for $115 USD, giving sneaker enthusiasts the chance to add this revived classic to their collection.
In other news, mark your calendars for the release of the Air Jordan 12 “Cherry” on October 28th, available for the whole family.
