Think you’ve seen the best of the Nike Dunk Low? Well, brace yourself. Nike is upping the style stakes with the introduction of the irresistibly chic “Brown Plaid” Dunk Lows. Drawing from the fashion archives of timeless menswear patterns, this new pair meticulously merges the timeless allure of leather with the seasoned elegance of plaid. The infallible brown ensures styling versatility, making these sneakers apt for both laidback outings and dressier engagements.
In the early stages of this year, Nike whet our appetite with the promise of releasing a host of new gentlemanly-inspired sneakers. From the fashion-forward Nike Dunk Low and Air Force 1 “Brogue” to the tastefully executed Dunk Low and Air Force 1 “Autumn Gentleman” sneakers, visual proofs are aplenty that the Swoosh brand has mastered the craft of manufacturing sophisticated and head-turning men’s footwear. While the “Brown Plaid” Dunk Low doesn’t follow the exact blueprint, its sophisticated brown palette and plaid details pay a stylish homage to the refined aesthetic Nike has been dabbling in.
For this iteration of Peter Moore’s iconic design, the traditional Dunk Low silhouette gets a glam makeover. The sneaker’s smooth sail leather upper is decorated with rich brown overlays that elegantly mirror the look of the much-loved Nike Dunk Low “Cacao Wow” colourway. The brown allure continues with the gold-finished brand label, elevating the sneaker’s overall luxurious allure.
Along with the copper tongue, the Dunk Low embraces latte laces and insole, offering a rich and intriguing combination. The real standout element, you might agree, is the neutral-toned plaid detail embellishing the iconic Nike Swoosh and the heel tab. On closer look, you’ll notice the various fabrics and shades that enhance the swooshes on both sides of the shoe. Each shade effortlessly blends into the overall colour palette of the sneaker’s design, while the sail-coloured midsole and dark brown outsole really bring this look together by offering a sharp contrast to the overall colour scheme.
These suave “Brown Plaid” Dunk Lows might not come in men’s sizes for the time being, but a similar style is due to hit the scene later this year. That said, the current pair is available in grade school sizes, sporting an affordable price tag of $95 USD a pair. Those who can confidently pull off grade school sizing, you indeed have a stylish new contender to add to your sneaker collection!
The sophisticated and fashionable notes of the “Brown Plaid” Dunk Lows are sure to make heads turn, irrespective of the crowd. Whether it’s a fancy outing or a casual day out, these sneakers will make a chic and versatile addition to any ensemble.
Younger sneakerheads can snag these exquisite kicks from Nike.com, the SNKRS app, or select retailers. Until then, be sure to follow us for more sneaker drops and reviews of the latest sneaker launches.
