Dunk High Varsity Maize
2020 has been largely the year of the Dunk Low for Nike Sportswear, but the Dunk High is also about to make love this holiday season with the reissue of a familiar ‘Varsity Maize’ makeup. Bearing many similarities to the 1985 “Iowa” Dunk from the flagship “Be True to Your School” series and the legendary “Wu-Tang” Dunk from 1999 – a style reportedly limited to 36 pairs – the “Varsity Maize” returns in a welcoming atmosphere, a thirst for archival colors. The quarters, collars and toe are in black leather, with overlays, mudguards, Swooshes, eyelets and heel tabs with a bright yellow tone for contrast. The tongue is traditional black nylon and fitted with yellow branding accents on its label. At the bottom, the “Varsity Maize” differs from the 2012 “Varsity Maize” style by using an airy white midsole instead of a cloudy black sole. Yellow outsoles complete the look.
