Up next for the new Nike Dunk Low Flyknit is this classic Bred (Black and Red) finish which aligns itself up nicely with the upcoming Air Jordan 1 High Retro Flyknit Bred. Releasing this Fall season, here are the official images.The Nike Dunk Low Flyknit Bred comes the classic low-top basketball sneaker with an updated look via the use of a Flyknit upper. The woven upper comes dressed in Red and Black and is paired up with suede hits on the tongue, heel and Swoosh. All this is then placed on top of a White midsole and Red rubber midsole to complete the major components of the shoe. So what’s the early verdict on the Dunk Low Flyknit? Are you a fan of the new design or is this a pass for you? Look for these to drop this Fall season.
Before Michael Jordan released his first signature shoe, the Nike Dunks were the shoe of choice, and they did just fine. First released as a high top in 1985, the Nike Dunk blessed the basketball scene and took the game to a whole new level. It came in a multitude of colorways, and was also released in team colors of superior college basketball teams. During the 1985-86 NCAA tournament, it was worn by topped rank universities such as Syracuse, Michigan, UNLV, and Arizona. It was easy to coordinate with team colors, as they came with different colored laces and a matching shoebox.
Unfortunately, as the Air Jordan 1 (I) was released, a shoe that resembles the Nike Dunk, it fell from favor. Nike created the Jordan to resemble the Dunk High as a marketing ploy, which led to an explosion in sales as the Jordan I hit the scene.The Dunks resurfaced in the late 90?s once again and became popular due to the Hip Hop scene. In 1999, as the resurgence of Hip Hop began so did that of the Nike Dunk. Another important catalyst in the resurrection of the Dunk was the release of the Nike Skateboarding (Nike SB) a couple of years later.The Nike Air Max 90 is fresh off a duo of ICE releases that turned heads this past weekend, so what’s next for the classic Nike retro? While you can’t quite call this pair a glow in the dark aesthetic, the Poison Green bottom on these evokes the effect upon first glance, especially when contrasted against a tonal Light Bone base. What do you think? Check out a better look at this near glow Air Max 90 and while we’re still waiting on a stateside release, know that you can grab the pair from international retailers like Titolo.
