We have seen the stunning “Cerulean Skies” sneakers from Ant Kai that followed their signature look of beautiful blue cloudy skies, which looks stunning…but does it come in pink? Luckily for us, it does, with the stunning Nike Off-White Dunk Low “Pink Skies” custom commission sneakers by Ant Kai. Love the look? Here’s everything you need to know about it.
These sneakers are gorgeous and would make a perfect couple’s pair if you also had the blue. Starting from the bottom, these sneakers sport a pastel purple outsole that starts its gradient early with a gentle fade to pink on the midsole, all while sporting the tag that you can usually find on Off-White collab sneakers silver on this pair.
There is a distinction between the gradient on the base of the sneakers and the panelling so we will look at the two separately. The base of the sneakers is made of canvas, peaking through on the toe box and the mid-foot section of the sneakers. These sections have a slightly darker gradient, presumably because of the way that the dye and paint take more quickly to the canvas.
The panelled overlays throughout the sneakers are a much lighter gradient that matches the pink to purple of the base of the sneakers, and the overlays are the only places where the fluffy white clouds are present. The panelling is leather, making up the mudguard, the lace unit, the heel counter, and the Nike Swoosh logo, all of which come together to make a stunning pair of sneakers.
As with the beautiful “Cerulean Skies” pair, the canvas tongue is purposefully distressed with a hole in the centre and distressed edges. The sneakers also have the signature white laces labelled “SHOELACES” and match the white clouds. As with many of the Nike x Off-White sneakers, there is also an additional decorative shoelace that is thinner than the main one, and this is present here in a soft purple that matches the outsole and the purple gradient.
This stunning pair of “Pink Skies” Nike Off-White Dunk Low sneakers was initially shared by Ant Kai on their Instagram page on the 4th of November, 2021. Ant Kai shared that he had convinced one of his commission customers “to switch it up to a pink version,” we are so glad he did. This stunning pair of sneakers is entirely hand-painted and hand-dyed. Kai worked to give the sneakers a beautiful “pink to purple fade to switch it up a bit,” and create a different look to the blue skies he usually creates.
The sneakers were brought back to popularity thanks to the prevalent custom sneaker news account @customkickwrld reposting the beautiful sneakers just yesterday, garnering over 56 thousand likes in less than 24 hours, so it’s safe to say that hype has been renewed for these stunning sneakers. While this pair was created for the Lot 767 sale on Ant Kai’s website, which is now sold out, you can watch his account on the website to see when his next bunch becomes available to have your own pair.
