How to Cop ‘The 50’ Off-White x Nike Dunk Lows From the ‘Dear Summer’ Collection
Putting together one of the most talked about collaborations in recent times, Virgil Abloh and his Off-White label are releasing a 50-colourway smorgasbord of Nike Dunk Lows as part of the ‘Dear Summer’ collection. Following a reveal of every single colourway in the release, we now have the first word on how you’ll be able to cop. Set to drop via Nike’s SNKRS app, the first colourways from collection will drop on August 9.
Forty-eight of the 50 colourways will be quite similar, with white and grey uppers complemented with Off-White design motifs such as overhanging lacing, exposed foam tongues, Helvetica text, plastic zip-ties, and fabric decorations. Set to release in separate batches of 10 colourways, each assortment will feature a slightly differing material composition. See all the details below:
1–10: Leather / Canvas Mix
11–20: Hairy Suede / Leather
21–30: Leather / Canvas Mix
31–40: Hairy Suede / Leather
41–50: Leather / Canvas Mix
Colourways ‘1 of 50’ and ‘50 of 50’ will likely be more limited, and both feature a different look. The former makes use of an all-white upper with a silver Swoosh and ‘aged’ yellowed midsole, possibly nodding to the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 ‘AF100’ from 2017. Meanwhile, ‘50 of 50’ is composed of black/silver with purple accents, potentially based off the Off-White x Nike Air Force 1 ‘MoMA’ from 2018.
The prospective release of ‘The 50’ will push the number of Off-White x Nike sneakers close to the 100.
As reported by Nike News, the Off-White x Nike Dunk Lows release rollout will begin on August 9, with more access being sent out over multiple days. The release appears to be limited to the Nike SNKRS Exclusive Access platform. Stay tuned for more details.
