Nike x Maharam Dunk Hi (Black & Dark Plum)

The Autumn season seems to bring out some of the best colour-ups brands have on offer. Those rich, deep and organic colours are always a pleasure to see on footwear.

Nike’s favoured mainstream hoop shoe gets a premium make over here. It’s always nice to see the dunk get the premium treatment, it’s when it works best. Material heavyweights ‘Maharam’ lend a helping hand on the material choice, proving to be another successful choice for Nike to collaborate with.

You’ve got the choice of either the black on black or dark plum colour-up, with both make-ups utilising block colour that fills the dunk silhouette right to the edge of the midsole. The use of block colour on dunks is becoming more appealing in comparison to the original college make-ups — especially for certain trends that the colder seasons bring to the table.

A solid effort from Nike and Maharam, pushing the fact that the dunk still has the potential to break necks.

These are avaiable from Crooked Tongues now.
