The Nike Dunk High Varsity Purple, which drops on December as a women’s exclusive sneaker, mirrors the Dunk from the 1999 Japan-exclusive “City Attack” pack.
The Dunk High Varsity Purple, muchlike the college-inspired Dunks that released this year, arrives with a white smooth leather base couple with purple Swoosh and leather overlays. To remind onlookers that these Dunks are special, the sneaker gets a shimmery gold embroidered Nike Air tab at the top of the tongue. It perfectly replicates the tongue tab seen on its 1999 predecessor.
To differentiate the OG from the re-release, the 2020 Nike Dunk High Varsity Purples comes with a translucent outsole and shiny laces. Looking into the sneaker, the sock liner comes in a satin purple to match the laces. These small and subtle design cues help soften the sneaker’s design without distorting the retro looks.
The 2020 Varsity Purple Dunk High drops on December 3.
