The game of basketball may be deeply embedded into the DNA and origins of the Dunk, but that isn’t stopping Nike from giving the trendy silhouette an elegant look. While we’ve seen exotic animal textures appear on the model, Nike is showing its intentions quite clearly with this upcoming release. A full dark mocha brown upper pairs up a classic leather with a croc-skin pattern typically seen in fine leather goods and shoes, giving Dunk fans a new vantage point on the popular lifestyle model.
A solid gum outsole adds to the formal outing aesthetic, while golden lettering on the heel, done in a Roman-style font, appears. The heel tab, which typically features the brand name in a slightly italicized fashion, is removed to keep the croc-skin swatch clean.
Check out the official images of these Nike Dunks ahead and we’ll notify you when a release arrives.
