A sustainable iteration of the acclaimed Nike Dunk High is releasing soon.
The sportswear giant announced via the SNKRS release calendar that the basketball-turned-lifestyle silhouette is launching in a new “Next Nature Sail” colorway before month’s end.
Unlike traditional iterations of the Nike Dunk that are constructed of a leather upper, this shoe version features a white quilted upper made entirely of recycled polyester and is offset by tan overlay panels and a black Swoosh branding on the sides. Adding to the design is a fleece sock liner, a white midsole and a brown outsole that’s made from recycled straps. According to the Swoosh, the style is made from at least 20% recycled content by weight.
“Putting a winterized spin on the ’80s basketball icon, the Dunk High “Next Nature Sail” keeps it cozy with a quilted upper made of 100% recycled polyester. Pairing perfectly with your favorite puffy jacket, its supersoft, fleece-like lining helps keep you warm,” Nike wrote for the shoe’s product description.
