Many of Nike Sportswear‘s in-line Dunk High releases from 2020 have pulled directly or borrowed heavily from OG ’80s Dunk style: the “Michigan,” “Michigan State” and “Pure Platinum” all use solid rubber soles and straightforward collar lining to lock in a heritage look. Now, however, the Dunk High “Varsity Purple” — an elegant women’s style — is diverging from the precedent set by its predecessors by adding modernized details to its classic base.
Uppers mix white and purple leathers in traditional Dunk fashion: the former hits toeboxes, quarters and collars while the latter supplies eponymous style on mudguards, eyestays, Swooshes, laces, collar flaps and heels. This simple-yet-effective colorblocking scheme is inherently familiar to any Dunk aficinado. What’s not familiar is the gold detailing on the Nike tongue badge and the premium satin collar lining. Down below, the mix of new and old is continued with a crisp white midsole atop a purple-tinted translucent outsole.
Persons interested in this slightly-twisted Dunk style will have their chance when it releases in December: early reports have a December 3 release date on Nike SNKRS and a $120 MSRP pegged, though both of these points have yet to be confirmed by Nike.
Elsewhere in the world of footwear, Nike’s famous Air Max 95 “Neon” has received a rugged “NDSTRKT” makeover for the winter.
