Nike Dunk Low “Reverse Panda” Gets Turned On Its Head
Does anyone still think of Desiigner when they think of “Panda”? I mean, do you even remember Desiigner? He used to be synonymous with Panda, the song. Even panda the mammal isn’t the most popular panda with this new generation. It is Panda, the Dunk Lows.
A colorway that’s achieved near ubiquity that was once reserved for the Air Force 1s and Jordans. They’re almost on every reasonably fashionable Gen Z’s feet. At some point, we’ll tire and think it’s the only panda that deserves to be endangered. They’re constantly sold-out and constantly restocked, allowing the panda to metamorphose to a cash cow for Nike.
For this, the Swoosh pulls the reverse card, executing a full-180 on the monochromatic scheme. It’s pretty interesting how different the pair looks compared to its twin after just a simple switch up. It’s essentially the same shoe made from the same rubber outsole and tumbled leather on the upper.
A simple black-and-white color palette has proven its ability to turn any silhouette into a classic as seen on the Jordans, the Air Forces, and most recently G-Dragon’s Kwondo 1. Nobody would be surprised if these fly off the shelves quickly. There’s no release date yet at the time of writing but we’ll give an update once it comes up.
Here’s another classic fitted like a tuxedo: the Nike Air Trainer 1 “Tokyo 2003”, a throwback to some of the silhouette’s best days and an homage to Japanese culture.
