All the way back in 2004, mita sneakers designed a classic take on the Nike Air Force 1 now known to be the legendary “OnkoChishin” colorway. It was one of the most outrageous looks ever to grace the Air Force 1 Low thanks to ostrich skin, leather, dark black nubuck, and glossy green patent leather. Now Nike Sportswear is bringing back the look with this updated Nike Dunk Low set to arrive exclusively at mita sneakers, Nike Harajuku, and NikeLab MA5 on July 8th. The pair emulates the original “OnkoChinshin” in a new way, moving the green patent leather to the toe guard, adding metallic gold tumbled leather to the Swoosh, and moving the synthetic ostrich skin to the heel. What results is a nice recollection of the 2004 classic in a new and exciting way. Fingers crossed for a more widespread release to come, but don’t count on it.
This is usually the time of year when Nike Sportswear brings back a couple of iconic colorways of the Nike Dunk from the “Be True To Your School” Collection given that the legendary basketball model was the silhouette of choice back in the mid-80s for some of the top collegiate programs during March Madness. But since Nike has basically brought back every colorway from the ‘Be True’ program, NSW is switching things up and bringing back oft-forgotten colorways of the Nike Dunk High like this retro “Violet Dust” option perfect for the Spring 2017 season. The Nike Dunk High Violet Dust features clean combination of smooth white leather while a plum accent color hits the overlaying panels and Swoosh branding. There’s still no word yet on a Release Date, but stay tuned for more updates in the near future.
Nike Skateboarding rider Sean Malto has uncanny control over his skateboard, as he can weave his way through the streets or any competition course with the utmost of ease. That’s why Nike SB decided he’d be the perfect guy to help introduce the latest Nike Dunk rendition as the skate imprint’s 15th-anniversary celebration continues to give us notable drops throughout 2017. The Nike SB Dunk Elite Low “Sean Malto” takes inspiration from the flexibility of traditional samurai armour as this slimmed down silhouette benefits from unique stitching, premium brass accents and a brand new sock liner for additional comfort.
