Thanks to Nike for reintroducing me to my true love. I’ve been rocking these bad boys for about a month straight since our PROCESS photo shoot at El Bar. They’ve touched the holy grounds of all our favorite Atlanta spots from Ponce to Peachtree.
They’re a classic Dunk High inspired by 1984 Vandals that used nylon. The choice of material back then was to create a lighter hoop shoe that feels soft and broken-in the first time you put them on. My Dunk High Nylons [Metallic Gold/Black/White ] are part of a 3 shoe quickstrike pack that includes 2 other colorways. No word on an exact release date, but expect them this summer/fall.
The same innovation push for “superior lightweight” is manifested in modern times through the Hyperdunk which drops on 7/26. If you’re not sure what that is, you’ve obviously been sleeping under a rock. Find out more on that tip here, here, and here. They’ve done an amazing job creating awareness and they KILLED IT with the Back to the Future II tie-in, which happens to be my favorite movie ever. If I could go back in time like Marty McFly, I’d find my way onto the creative team behind the Nike Hyperdunk campaign.
Anyway, if you want to see the Dunk High Nylons in person, you can find me at the Local tonight.
