Unfortunately. Well, I can’t find the norm. But it’s great to see Nike doing the Dunk in other materials for a change. Here’s two pairs I saw over at Hideout last weekend. The Black/Red/White Dunk Hi CL you see here retails for 4,595 php and uses a mix of leather, nylon, and nubuck. We all know that I’ve graduated from the school of Dunk already but I don’t mind rockin’ these if I had a pair. Maybe change the laces to black for a more low profile look.
Another Dunk Hi available at Hideout is the Dunk High Premium “Burgundy”. Heavyweight burgundy canvas upper matched with bright blue laces to give a great contrast. Yes, the upper is burgundy, not brown. Zoom air has been patched for better comfort and gum soles to finish off the look. The Dunk High Premium retails for 5,295 php, not bad, for the materials used for this one. But then again, I do find the pair rather a tad bit expensive. Dunk High SBs go for 5k, and you’re getting a better story behind them too. But hey, if you’re not too particular about the history behind some pairs, then knock yourselves out. The guys over at Hideout are good people and they’ll make sure they’ve got something for you, like these Dunk Highs. Now if only they had something for me, like those damn elusive AM 90 Infrareds.
I know I can’t let this post shine through without mentioning the infrared 90s. Still can’t believe Nike Phils is holding out on us with this one. Crapola.
