The origin of the Nike Dunk dates back to the early 80s, when high school basketball became more and more popular and attracted the public. Nike got the idea to design Dunk when a sales representative came to watch the 1985 NCAA quarterfinals. At that time Nike was the main sponsor for all 4 teams. Nike then wanted to design a shoe with vibrant colors that would not only match the players’ uniforms, but also match the fans. Since then, Nike Dunk has had a long journey and now this shoe has become a “must-have item” on the street, used for skateboarding, collectibles, associated with popular culture.
The Dunk Low has been Nike’s standout sneaker in recent years with a host of new two-tone variations and special editions. The newest upcoming color scheme dubbed “Ocean” features an interesting mix of materials and patterns to encapsulate the concept. Today, let’s explore this version of sneakers with Storepc.
This upcoming Nike Dunk Low will feature a white suede upper with textured overlays in Teal that mimic the dynamic surface of the ocean. Additionally, ripples adorn the tongue and insole labels, while additional branding accents will be found on the Nike-embroidered heel tab.
Next, the Teal-colored shoelaces will help adorn the reed part, which is finished with mesh material. Finally, the combination of a crisp white midsole and a white rubber outsole with marbled blue completes the unique look of these sneakers.
Enjoy the official image of the Nike Dunk Low “Ocean” above, and expect these versions to launch in the coming months at Nike’s website and select retailers for $100 USD.
