Nike’s Certified Fresh Pack expands to include a vintage look.
Over the last three or so years, The Swoosh has continued to pump out more and more colorways of the ever-popular Nike Dunk in its many variations. While we’re more than used to seeing the typical all-leather colorways, sometimes the silhouette needs a shake-up. That’s where the "Certified Fresh" Pack steps in, a collection of Dunk High colorways that keeps things clean while adding a slight twist to Peter Moore's design from 85. Bringing us retro vibes is the upcoming Nike Dunk High Vintage "Particle Grey."
A mix of canvas and tumbled leather that comes with natural imperfections takes over the upper, getting dressed in shades of grey all throughout the overlays and underlays. While both grey hues remain relatively light, the toebox, midfoot, and collar that come in canvas get a slightly darker treatment while the overlays on the mudguard, eyestays, and heel overlay get a lighter shade. Breaking up the grey tones is a set of vibrant pink laces, working up to the Nike branded tongue tag in its classic shade of black and orange. On the reverse, the typical Nike text is replaced with "Certified Fresh" branding, also seen stamped atop the grey insole. Finishing the design is the sail midsole and rubber outsole.
The Nike Dunk High Vintage Particle Grey is set to release on August 30th, 2022 through Nike and select retailers online and in-store. Coming in men’s sizing, the retail price is set at $135.
