The upcoming “Tiger” Hyperflights will be accompanied by the newly released Nike Dunk Free, seen here in a matching black/grey/orange colorway. The Dunk Free, however, takes a much more subtler approach by using the catchy stripes only on the Swoosh while utilizing a basic color-blocking throughout the rest of the shoe. It’s likely that similar Dunk Frees will release to coincide with the “Shark” and “Lion” Hyperflights, so in the meantime, check out the additional photos below and stay tuned for more updates.
The outsole on Nike sportswear’s various retro silhouettes is usually one of the last things to get switched around in the long process of modernizing a classic design. The Nike Dunk for example has had all sorts of VT and Hyperfuse versions over the past couple of years, and it’s only now that the immediately recognizable kit on bottom gets switched out for a more movement friendly Nike Free treatment. Of course the upper is indeed tweaked too, as there’s a bit of Fuse and Foam going on across the top as well.
See this new Nike Dunk Free colorway in better detail below and stay tuned to find out when they’ll be in the states.While Nike is busy bringing back classic Dunk styles of old via the likes of the Viotech and UNDFTD stuff, they’re also hard at work renovating the beloved silhouette. The result is the Nike Dunk Free, a brand new model for 2013 that does indeed have the Nike Free sole along the bottom, along with a little bit of Hyperfuse up top and some Foamposite looking groove lines. Shown here are the first two colorways of the Nike Dunk Free that will be available, both of which can be had for $110 at select Foot Locker stores this weekend. See more photos below and watch for these on shelves at your local spot starting soon.
