Nike hit a home run when they brought out their Nike Dunk silhouette in 1985, and even more so when they adapted the silhouette to a low-top sneaker. Although not quite the same as the Nike SB Dunk Low silhouette, made explicitly for skateboarders, the silhouettes are very similar. Luckily, the Nike Dunk Low has continued to soar, adding to the line with the latest colourway, “Amber Brown”.
These sneakers are perfect for the collector who likes their neutral tones but wants to add a bit of “spice” to their collection, with a primarily neutral colourway with a stunning pop of colour around the ankle.
Starting from the bottom, instead of leaving the outsole as the typical gum colour, which would have been pretty applicable in this colourway, the outsole is a lovely light brown repeated on the upper, giving the sneakers a stunning and sleek look.
Contrasting the light brown outsole is a stark white midsole, one of the only three white elements of the sneaker, seen again on the sneakers’ laces and the insole.
Most of the panelling on the upper is the same light brown as the outsole, marking the mudguard, the lace stays, the upper lace stays extending around the heel, and the Nike Swoosh logo on the lateral and medial sides.
The side panels, the toe box, and the rest of the upper around the collar of the sneakers are a much lighter, creamy brown.
The infamous pop of collar comes in with the lining of the sneakers and the heel tab. The lining of the sneakers, the inner, which peaks out over the collar, is a stunning electric blue, also represented on the lining of the tongue and peaking around the edges.
The tongue label is a light cream with bright Amber orange typography reading NIKE with the Swoosh branding. The same colours are repeated but reversed for the heel tab, reading NIKE in cream against a bright Amber orange backdrop.
The colour combination of the collar area over the neutral upper has made many interested fans think of an early evening sunset over sand dunes, which is a majestic comparison for these otherwise simple and sleek sneakers.
Release Date and Price
These may be official sneakers, although @cop.em doesn’t generally advertise custom sneakers, so these could be official. If you look at the comment section on their Instagram post, one user, @ sneakersgram21, a collector who buys and sells sneakers, was offering them on pre-order, so they will officially be available soon.
Because of a pre-order situation, it’s hard to say when these sneakers will officially be on the market, but keep your eyes peeled for more official images and an official release date.
What @cop.em does share with us, however, is that the expected price for these stunning neutral sneakers with a subtle colourful twist is $110, so get your wallets ready.
