For more than a year and a half now, the brand’s creative teams at the Swoosh have been revisiting the Nike Dunk without sparing their efforts, in order to impose it definitively on the feet of the sneakers addicts that you are. If you will forgive us for the expression, “we eat it all the way,” to such an extent that Peter Moore’s classic could eventually join the Air Force 1 at the top of the ranking of the most declined silhouettes by the American equipment manufacturer. While waiting to see if it will ever make it, we invite you to explore one of its latest iterations: the Nike Dunk High EMB ‘’ Lakers ’’. As its name suggests, it is an unprecedented version whose colors are reminiscent of those of the tunic of the Los Angeles Lakers, the NBA franchise with which the late Kobe Bryant has played throughout his career. professional. The pair, which will be released on April 29, is part of a vintage register that should delight fans of the model as much as basketball fans of the 1980s. Without transition, room for introductions.
A new Nike Dunk High in the colors of the Los Angeles Lakers
For once, the Nike Dunk comes to New Jordan 2020 in a new colourway that should go quickly. Very quickly, even! And for good reason, this one is inspired by the iconic purple and yellow jersey of the Lakers, one of the two basketball teams in the city of Los Angeles.
The creatives responsible for its design, however, did not content themselves with simply recalling this duo of purple and yellow on the shoe from 1985. They shaped it in a seductive retro style that will take you back thirty years to the time when the NBA was booming. Evidenced by the inscription “NIKE” grafted on the back of each foot, and more generally the perfect balance between the materials of the upper and the colors of the Lakers. The pair is articulated around a high upper with a black canvas base with contrasting purple leather overlays. The design is enhanced with a yellow side Swoosh that immediately catches the eye. As for the sole, it stands in an intertwining of white and black that is as relevant as it is effective. As we mentioned in the introduction, the release of this Nike Dunk High EMB “Lakers” is scheduled for April 29, 2021, in other words the same day as that of the Nike Dunk Low “Easter”. We sincerely hope that you have some savings left because this weekend will be very rich in sneaker releases.
