Nike Dunk High Premium – Obsidian – Crinkled Patent – New Images

The newest Nike Dunk High Premium represents a curious tangency in Nike Sportswear’s plans for Q2. When the white pair of crinkled patent leather Dunk Highs first came onto the scene, they were dubbed a part of NSW’s ‘White Pack’, a collection of ‘blank’ classics that was apparently also extended onto a recently revealed pair of Blazers. But then on the first of April we also saw a new Obsidian crinkled patent pair (no foolin’), and while it’s obvious they’re not part of the White Pack, could this motif be extended into more colors and place the white joints in the center of a two-pack venn diagram? Let’s hope the answer is yes cos we could envision a variety of tones looking quite nice in this tumbled patent/ice sole look. But even if the buck stops here with the Obsidians, the extension was well worth it, this pair’s deep uppers serving to bring out the blues in their translucent bottoms. Stick with The Retro Sole for word on the US release date. Via Taobao & Sneaker News
