Nike Sportswear flagship 21 Mercer has announced an exclusive launch in the form of the  Dunk Free “Arago.” Blending  Free technology with a classic Dunk silhouette, the kicks make use of an understated color palette highlighted by greyish neutral shades throughout the upper, accented with black laces and a speckled beige Nike Free sole unit. The “Arago” theme is a bit of a mystery, but an early guess is a tribute to Francois Arago, who defined the trajectory of the Parisian Meridian in the early 1880s, which would inspire the placement of the Arago medallions in 1994 along the route of the meridian. Look for the Dunk Free “Arago” to launch this Thursday at 21 Mercer.
