The Dunk Low features a tasteful combination, with off-white “Sail” leather forming the foundation for both the underlays and midsole. Adding a pop of flair, red nubuck adorns the tip, eyestays, and heel, creating a perfect visual balance. The Swoosh and tongue take on a luscious pink nubuck, while the Nike logo proudly sits atop a shaggy brown suede mustache, adding a playful touch to the design.

This delectable colorway has a flavorful history, originating from a 2004 Air Max 90 collaboration with Dave’s Quality Meat, a pioneering sneaker boutique in New York City. Co-founder Dave Ortiz drew inspiration from a quintessential NYC favorite – the bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich, conceptualizing the iconic color scheme just days before the deadline.
