Nike Tag Up the Dunk Low 'Graffiti'
News of this release was first published on March 15, 2022.
Update March 23, 2022: After last week's leak, official images of the Nike Dunk Low 'Graffiti' have surfaced. It turns out they also have reflective Swooshes and will come packaged in a sprayed-up box! However, there is no confirmed release date yet.
As Nike continue to expand their seemingly endless lineup of Dunks, they've gotten more and more experimental with the onetime basketball sneaker. The latest result of that fiddling is a Dunk Low that's been nicknamed the 'Graffiti' due to its rough-hewn construction and spray paint-inspired colourway.
Revealed by sample and early pair collector ,@woganwodeyang, the 'Graffiti' discards the Dunk's standard leather upper in favour of a full textile build with rough-hewn seams and black contrast stitching. There's a soft-edged collage of colours atop this build that ranges from murky shades like black and oxidized green to more vibrant tones like pink, purple and red. Black Swooshes and special tongue badges split this assemblage, and a hidden detail is provided by the insole's all-over graffiti tag print.
Though official word from the Swoosh on this Dunk is forthcoming, it may be a part of a pack – a similar Dunk Low with NikeGrind midsoles and reflective Swooshes was revealed earlier in the month. Keep it locked for info on an official release date as it's made available!
