The Nike x Off-White Dunk Low Is Here

For months, images of the latest Virgil Abloh-designed Nike Dunk have bounced around the corners of the Internet, tempting the streetwear and luxury crowds at both ends of the fashion spectrum. This time around, the in-demand designer chose to rework the cult-loved Dunk Low, a longtime favorite among hoops fans, stylish skaters, and sneakerheads alike. In pure Abloh form, the classic sneaker gets dressed up into an object of fashionable desire thanks to a few familiar motifs as well as some brand-new ones, too.

Before this collaboration, the tale of the Nike Dunk was already an interesting one. It made its debut in 1985, borrowing some design DNA from the Air Force 1 but with the addition of bold color blocking, and when the 2000s rolled around, the shoe took off among skaters and sneakerheads. (Skaters liked the shoe for its design and durability while sneakerheads liked the limited-edition colorways and collaborations.) Abloh certainly knows all of this and is looking to build off the style and goodwill the silhouette already holds. Staying true to the original profile, the designer adds secondary lace loops and fluorescent cable laces to create a hiking-boot inspired fit. (This look isn’t dissimilar from the Abloh-designed Terra Kiger 5 that released earlier this year.) Some of the usual Nike x Off-White details—rough-around-the-edges foam tongue, Helvetica-adorned side, and glossy zip tie—are still featured. The sneaker is offered in three collegial-looking colorways: pine green and white, crimson red and silver, and bright gold and navy.

Even if a devotee of Abloh isn’t aware of the Dunk silhouette’s impressively hyped lineage, the sneaker has all the signs of being a hit. (It’s loud and straightforward and obviously stamped with the sought-after sans-serif typeface.) Sneakers like the Pigeon Dunk by Staple Design and the “Tiffany” Dunk by Diamond Supply Company both cemented the style as a grail-worthy silhouette back in the mid-aughts. Abloh’s spin on the style is just adding another notch to the long line of sought-after Dunks—and it’s also one that will likely stand the test of time.

$170, available December 20 via Nike.
