NBA x Dunk Low 75th Anniversary - 7th October

To commemorate its 75th Anniversary, NBA's teamed up with Dunk to showcase a trio of baketball-inpsired low-tops.

The Chicago Bulls rendition features sail uppers and red overlays, with black accents on the swoosh, laces, heel tab and collar flaps. The Brooklyn Nets rendition is mostly grey, displaying the hue across the toe box, collar and quarter panels while a navy blue decorates the swooshes, forefoot overlays and heels. But the New York Knicks rendition is the most colourful: with orange forefoot overlays, black uppers, a blue swoosh and grey collar.

Dunk Low Halloween and Mummy - TBC

In celebration of spooky season, Dunk's created the ultimate Halloween sneaker. The namesake shoe features a sail leather upper with orange swooshes, tongues and inner lining. The shining feature, however, is the glow-in-the-dark owl eyes atop a glowing outsole.

But Dunk didn't stop at one; the Mummy also drops this Halloween. The denim effect, neutral toned sneaker features a tear-away upper that mimics a Mummy's dressing. It's also glow-in-the-dark (across the soles, heel tab and tongue label) with eyes in the back of its head... literally.

Air Force 1 Skeleton - TBC

Like the first sign of frost on the ground marking winter, the Air Force 1 Skeleton marks Halloween. Having first made waves in 2018 with a white rendition, the sneaker soon followed in black and orange. And now, in 2021, a purple release is on the cards. As with past releases, a bold upper features an aerial look at a skeletal x-ray, sat atop a glow-in-the-dark sole unit.
