Get ready to lose your minds, fellow sneaker enthusiasts, because Nike is about to drop a Dunk Low that will transport us straight back to the golden age of kicks. Brace yourselves for a modern twist on these iconic sneakers that resurrects a legendary detail: cracked leather on the ankle collar.
Thanks to the sneaker guru @masterchefian, leaked images have been making the rounds on Twitter, giving us an exclusive sneak peek at this highly anticipated release. And let me tell you, these kicks look like they’ve been plucked right out of a vintage thrift store. With their yellowed soles, worn-in leather uppers, and that oh-so-authentic deteriorating material on the ankle, it’s hard to believe they’re fresh off the production line. And while the navy/yellow colorway may bring back memories of Michigan, this pair’s color-blocking breaks away from the original Be True version of the ’80s, adding an even more intriguing twist to the mix.
But hold on tight, sneaker enthusiasts, because this is just the beginning. Nike has big plans to bless us with more of this vintage treatment. They’re gearing up to apply it to several other colorways of the Dunk Low in the near future, whether it’s in 2023 or early 2024. So keep your eyes peeled and stay on your toes for updates, because adding this aged authenticity to your sneaker collection is an absolute must.
Now, I know you’re dying to know where you can cop these gems once they hit the market. Well, fear not, because our reliable source @kicksfinder on Twitter will be delivering live tweets during the release date. So make sure you’re following them to stay in the loop, my fellow sneakerheads!
And last but certainly not least, a massive shoutout to the incredible folks at Sneaker News for bestowing upon us these images. You guys absolutely rock!
