The Nike Dunk Low, a sneaker legend with almost four decades of history, is embarking on a nostalgic journey down memory lane. Recently, at the highly-anticipated SNKRS Showcase, Nike revealed their captivating plans for 2024: the triumphant return of three cherished iterations of Peter Moore’s iconic masterpiece – the renowned “Ultraman,” the captivating “Reverse Curry,” and the enigmatic “Silver Surfer.” If that doesn’t get your sneaker senses tingling, hold on tight because Nike seems to be teasing the resurrection of the elusive 2003 “Dirty Denim” Dunks, this time decked out in an extravagant all-hairy suede upper.
Cast your mind back to the era when Nike SB caused shockwaves with the release of the original Nike Dunks. Among the myriad of eyecatching designs, one undeniably ruled them all. Sporting the sleek combination of “Navy Blue/Cascade Blue/Magnet,” it became an instant limited edition sensation. The sublime grey overlays on the upper perfectly harmonized with the deep blue accents on the toe boxes, mid-foot panels, and heel regions. Even the panels along the tongue couldn’t resist joining the blue-hued festivities. While Nike remains tight-lipped about the connection to the iconic “Dirty Denims,” the similarities are impossible to overlook. True to their form, Nike effortlessly integrates self-references, with this unreleased gem being the latest evidence of their sneaker storytelling prowess.
Prepare to feast your eyes on exclusive photographs from retailers and brace yourselves for the highly anticipated launch on nike.com in early 2024. This stunning suede-drenched treasure will be up for grabs at an enticing price point of $125 USD.
But wait, there’s more thrilling news on the Nike horizon! The highly anticipated Air Jordan 5 “Midnight Navy” will be making its grand entrance for the entire family on November 10th. Stay tuned, because greatness awaits!
