Nike’s infamous “ugly duckling,” the Dunk Mid, is making a triumphant return. Created in 1985 by the mastermind Peter Moore, this basketball sneaker has faced its fair share of skeptics. But fear not, recent releases have shown that this shoe has the power to convert even the most hardened non-believers.
As the temperature drops around the world, Nike is bringing us a new colorway for the mid-top Nike Dunk: “Dark Stucco/Neutral Olive/Light Bone.” This release perfectly fits into Nike, Inc.’s autumn collection, drawing inspiration from military-style garments that have been causing quite a stir. The sneaker features dark-colored panels on the forefoot, tongue, and heel, allowing hints of lighter olive undertones to peek through in strategic areas. The profile swooshes and branding elements on the upper have a sleek, colorless finish, which seamlessly transitions onto the midsole. And let’s not forget the semi-translucent “Dark Stucco” outsole, reminiscent of the iconic Air Jordan 1, that adds the perfect finishing touch to this subtly stylish offering.
Get ready, because this revived classic is set to make its official debut on nike.com before the year comes to an end. Priced at a reasonable $115 USD, sneaker enthusiasts will have the opportunity to add this must-have to their collection.
Now, onto other exciting news – mark your calendars for the release of the Air Jordan 12 “Cherry” on October 28th, available in sizes for the whole family. It’s going to be a day to remember for sneakerheads everywhere.
