Nike will continue to release the popular Dunk sneaker in new colorways. This time, the brand created a look that celebrates the history of its iconic Swoosh logo.

Product images of the Nike Dunk High “First Use” recently surfaced, revealing a bold new look for the classic basketball-turned-lifestyle model. The shoe wears a predominantly red color scheme featuring premium leather as the base of the upper while complemented with soft suede overlay panels including for the mudguard and heel counter.

This iteration’s standout details are the sides’ Swoosh brandings with an embroidered logo on the lateral side and a leather branding in sail on the medial portion. In addition, the date June 18, 1971, is embroidered at the midfoot as a reference to when Nike trademarked its Swoosh logo. The shoe also comes with double shoelaces in red and sail, special gold Swoosh lace dubraes at the center of the tongue, sail midsole, and a red outsole.

Although images of the Nike Dunk High “First Use” have surfaced, a release date for the style hasn’t been announced by the brand.

For fans who aren’t interested in waiting for the shoe’s retail release, you can pick up a pair today on the resale market.

StockX, for instance, has pairs available at the time of press with the lowest asking price of $149 for a men’s size 8 and a high bid of $261 for a men’s size 9.
