Nike’s Dunk High silhouette may get fewer colourway releases than its Dunk Low counterpart, but boy oh boy, when it does, it certainly makes a statement. There must be something about the sneaker’s construction that elevates its visual impact. Perhaps its taller profile and chunkier design create a more commanding street presence. Or maybe that extra bit of height further emphasises the sneaker’s retro aesthetic. It could also just be a matter of personal preference, but whatever it is, one thing is certain: the Dunk High demands attention. With its bold colour combinations and iconic silhouette, it has become a favourite among sneaker enthusiasts and collectors alike. And with several stunning new colourways set to release this year, the popularity of this Nike Dunk silhouette is sure to rise to an all-time ‘high’ (pun definitely intended). However, one upcoming release that is especially noteworthy is the Nike Dunk High “Chocolate/Sail/Cream”. Why, might you ask? Well, aside from its delicious-sounding colourway (minus the sail part, of course) and eye-catching stitch details, the “Chocolate/Sail/Cream” Dunk High shares a close resemblance to a highly sought-after Nike collaboration: The Travis Scott Air Jordan 1 Low OG “Reverse Mocha.
On closer inspection, you can see that both sneakers feature a similar brown and cream colour scheme, making the Nike Dunk High “Chocolate/Sail/Cream” a more accessible option for fans who couldn’t get their hands on the limited-edition Travis Scott collaboration.
Much like its exclusive predecessor, the Nike Dunk High “Chocolate/Sail/Cream” features a chocolate brown colour on the toe boxes, quarter panels, and collars, while the overlays take on a “Sail” hue. However, with the Dunk High colourway, the interior liners, heel tabs, and exposed stitching on the checks all have hints of vibrant red colour, adding a pop of contrast to the overall design. These pops of red do pay homage to the Nike and Cactus Jack branding, though, so they don’t stray too far from the rapper’s previous Air Jordan 1 colours.
The Nike Swoosh appears in cream tones with red stitching around the edges, while non-standard basketball logos rest on the sneaker’s footbeds. This suggests that Dunk High’s latest offering may be a part of some hoops-inspired Nike Sportswear collection that we have not seen yet.
To complete the look, an off-white midsole is complemented by a brown outsole, perfectly complementing the earthy tones of the upper. Overall, the Nike Dunk High design showcases a seamless blend of streetwear and basketball aesthetics, giving a nod to Travis Scott’s signature sneaker while maintaining its own unique identity and appeal.
The Nike Dunk High “Chocolate/Sail/Cream” is set to retail for $130 via Nike’s official website and select retailers. The Swoosh brand has not yet announced an official release date for the sneaker, but it is expected to drop in the coming months. Be sure to keep checking back for updates on the release date and availability if you are interested in getting your hands on a pair. With its rich brown and cream colourway and iconic high-top silhouette, the Nike Dunk High “Chocolate/Sail/Cream” may just be your next favourite sneaker.
