Just like we predicted at the end of the last year, the Nike Dunk Low made its mainstream resurgence, and Travis Scott, who’s known for influencing resale prices of Dunks, is often referenced as a trailblazer when it comes to the Dunks comeback.
The Nike Dunk Low SP “Samba” is returning this year after 19 years. The pair was a Japan-exclusive in 2001, and this year’s release was supposed to coincide with Tokyo Olympics. Unfortunately, due to the global events, the Olympics were postponed, but luckily for us, sneakerheads, Nike is sticking to its scheduled drop on August 21st.
Like the original design, the low-top Dunk features a “Hyper Blue” base overlaid with “Silver” leather panels. Profile Swooshes and “NIKE”-branded heel overlays deviate from their surroundings not only with their “Samba” color scheme but also their carbon fiber-reminiscent construction. Sole units maintain the memorable 19-year-old-colorway in-tact as they round out the pair with a white midsole/red outsole combination.
The Nike Dunk Low SP “Samba” will retail at CA$135 on August 21st on the SNKRS App.
