Once a upon a time the Nike Dunk was a college basketball footwear staple and back in 1985/86 it was must for college ball club athletes to match up their team colours with their Dunks. This quickstrike pack pays homage to those early days.
It feels as if the Dunk craze has finally died down a little these days. This release seems to be a nod to all of those who might have been around way before we all knew what a Nike Dunk even was. The vintage treatment, similar to that of the Vintage Blazer’s, is out in full effect on all four of these shoes with varsity colours reminiscent of the college basketball teams in the 80’s. All of the make-ups have full grain leather upper’s which is a familiar application on the Dunk, but there’s a certain feel to the leather on these that adds more character. The vintage treatment seems to be an aim to emulate what some deadstock Nike Dunk’s would look like if you kept them on ice since ’85.
These are Quickstrike, so don’t sleep…
