The Nike Dunk High ‘Sports Specialties’ showcases a unique design inspired by the throwback headwear brand that produced officially licensed fan gear during the ‘80s and ‘90s.
The high-top gets dressed in a unique combination of materials, highlighted by a navy corduroy base with white leather overlays and a green corduroy Swoosh.
‘Official Nike Basketball Merchandise’ is displayed on a stitched-on patch at the lateral heel, while the woven tongue tag features standard Nike branding with a Sports Specialties logo.
The sneaker is mounted on a solid rubber cupsole that pairs white sidewalls with a navy rubber outsole.
The company was founded on January 25, 1964, as Blue Ribbon Sports, by Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight, and officially became Nike, Inc. on May 30, 1971.
