Retro and vintage vibes appear on this Panda version of the Nike Dunk High.
Over at The Swoosh, the PANDAemic continues to rage on. More and more Nike Dunk models are borrowing from the often restocked colorway, appearing in a variety of reverse forms and even getting a gilded makeover with the “World Champ” colorways. Now, yet another version has appeared, though this time taking us back to the 80s with the Nike Dunk High “Vintage Panda.”
The classic colorblocking of the Panda Dunk remains, though the normally all-white leather underlays get a sail finish on the toebox, midfoot, and collar. Black leather overlays appear on the mudguard, eyestays, and heel overlay, the latter of which gets an added hit of branding with “Nike” stamped atop the leather in white. Running up the sail tongue with exposed foam on its edge is a matching set of laces, stopping below the faded “Nike” text in black. As for the Swoosh logo, its normal black appearance remains as does the black leather tab on the heel. Underfoot, an extra vintaged midsole comes in medium brown while the rubber outsole below continues the black theme.
The Nike Dunk High Vintage Panda is slated to release in 2022 through Nike and select NSW retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is TBA.
