The Nike Dunk Low is still at the top of everyone’s wish list, and it doesn’t look like that will change any time soon.
This is a newer take on an older design choice
Peter Moore’s 37-year-old design came out recently with suede “Chlorophyll” panels, making it look like the much-loved Air Max 1 from 2006, which was also covered in the same color. Even though the rich green color of the latest low-top Nike Dunk is appealing, the swooshes on the profile may be a turn-off. Tinker Hatfield came up with the dimpled finish in 1987, and this design choice is another example of how the Oregon-based company seems to use it at random. Overall, though, the mix of new and old, simple and bold designs shows what a great canvas the Dunk is.
The Chlorophyll Dunk is a winner all around. Even though the design is based on an old one and isn’t new to the world of sneakers, it looks great. The color green and the finished product really make you feel like a wilderness has grown in your feet.
