We teamed up with Berlin’s Overkillshop again because it’s time for another great Nike Dunk Low release. Nike’s Sportswear segment provides the next cool retro version of a Dunk, which will be available soon worldwide. It’s the Nike Dunk Low SP „Veneer“ which has already been announced on the Internet for some time now. We will tell you here how and where you can get the „Veneer“ at Overkill.
After the Nike Dunk Low SP „Plum“ in February, the second model of the legendary „Ugly Duckling“ (aka „Ugly Dunkling“) pack, the „Veneer“ Dunk Low is now coming to Overkill. The original pack contained three colorways of the Nike Dunk. It was launched exclusively in Japan in 2001, which is why the three Dunks got the name affix co.jp back then. In addition to the two already mentioned „Plum“ and „Veneer“ Dunk, the so-called „Ceramic“ colorway belongs to the „Ugly Duckling“ pack. Soon this third orange-black „Ceramic“ colorway will also see the light of sneaker boutiques worldwide as a retro version and will presumably cause storms of enthusiasm, just like the „Plum“ and now the „Veneer“ Dunk, to which we want to come back now.
As with the other two Dunks of the original pack, the name refers to one of the colors used on the shoe. „Veneer“ in this case is the name of the brown on the base of the Dunk. We can see it on the toebox, sidepanel, heel and tongue. The latter two areas are made of nylon, all other parts of the Dunk, including the overlays, are made of suede, which seems to have a quite nice quality. Nike also took care of the shape and kept the toespring low, at least that’s what the pictures let us hope. The eyestay, the rear overlay and the mudguard are in a nice Autumn Green. Especially the latter seems to have a good height this time. Nike listens to its critics, because especially the height of the mudguard has often been too low for old-fashioned Dunk lovers like we are. The Swoosh and the heel tab come in a rich Deep Purple (no, not the metal band). Also purple are the lacing and the outsole, which sits under a white midsole. With khaki on the lining, another color comes into play, but it doesn’t make the overall appearance of the „Veneer“ look unsteady. The green tongue label with its purple Nike/Swoosh logo matches to the upper of the shoe, as does the embroidered green NIKE lettering on the heel tab. Here, one of the most beautiful and harmonious retro Dunks of the year is definitely coming our way.
