Following its debut, the original Dunk High underwent surgery, transforming into the alternate cut iteration that most will be familiar with. While the midsection of the sneaker will appear deeply familiar, the main differences lay at the ankle and sole. Firstly, 1985 has been built to mimic the build of the initial release, meaning the ankle section is cut much higher than modern iterations.
Leaning heavily on the sneaker’s vintage legacy, Nike utilizes a render consisting of a pale palette with heavy contrasts and an upper fabrication built to be worn in. Thanks to the pale pink denim overlays that sit across several portions of the sneaker, these will only bare more character with wear.
