There’s not much you can do to make the Nike Dunk High, but if you had to do something, infusing it with the brand’s Free technology and Nike Air Foamposite definitely doesn’t hurt. Thanks to the Foamposite build, this Dunk High weighs in a little lighter in addition to presenting a smoother, more uniform look across its upper, with the Hyperfuse underlays providing extra breathability and flex, and the speckled Nike Free sole providing inspiration for both the shoe’s name and all-day comfort. The made-over look also features deep grooves built into the ankle, a nylon inner liner, and a circle Nike logo on the tongue (recently seen on the Nike Huarache). Set for a June 2013 release in four colorway options, each with their own kind of volt accent. See them in more detail after the click.
