It is now official, Virgil Abloh announced it first through his Instagram profile and then Nike through the SNKRS app: 50 new pairs of Nike Dunk Low x Off White will be released by the end of the summer. This is certainly the largest and most ambitious project of the designer together with the Beaverton brand, and will take the name of “Dear Summer”.
Of the 50 sneakers that are part of the collection, 49 have a white and gray upper while only one, the fiftieth pair, stands out in black with a metallic Swoosh. Regarding the materials, the 50 Dunks are proposed in two combinations: the first involves a canvas base with overlays in smooth leather, the second a base in smooth leather with overlays in hairy suede.
The sneakers, numbered from 1/50 to 50/50, differ thanks to 48 different colors for lace, tongue, sock-liner, zip tie, lot number and lateral swoosh underlay. The characteristic elements of Abloh's design are the common thread with previous projects in collaboration with Nike, futuristic-inspired details mixed with hiking and industrial aesthetics.
Nike has announced August 9 as the launch date of the collection, the day on which the 50 low-top Dunks will be available through invitations to exclusive access to SNKRS App members, also providing useful advice to users to be selected within the community and rewarded with personal invitations. Anyway you will be able to cop the collection on Hypeclothinga.com.
The universe of sneakerheads is eagerly awaiting this release that is already framed as legendary even before seeing the light.
