I’d love to have a pair of these to match the car I’ll never own.
Inspired by the DeLorean DMC-12, Nike 6.0 Introduces the Limited-Edition DeLorean Nike Dunk, a Fusion of Innovation and Style. Influenced by the DMC-12′s aerodynamic design and trademark characteristics, Nike reinterpreted the car’s sleek stainless steel exterior into a matte silver, no-sew constructed upper while also taking cues from the gull-wing doors on the bottom eyestay. The shoe’s outsole references the Delorean’s tail lights and the DMC-12′s rear window shades reappear as graphic lines on the heel replacing the traditional stitches. Meanwhile, the Belfast stamp on the tongue is a nod to the Irish factory that originally produced the vehicle.
Like the rebellious, rare and flashy DMC-12, the DeLorean Nike Dunk champions the unexpected by making a statement. This super limited-edition shoe will be available starting on November 26th, Black Friday, at Store.Nike.com, Niketown locations, Salvation (Irvine, CA) and select nationwide retailers.
